    perhaps you are?

    I know others with the same pump, it has served them well too.

    lets go back to the one that you had fail though, what part of it failed?
    Post a photo of the pump.

    See, that is not the compressor that I was speaking about. ( it is the same as every other $10 POS pumps)

    So when you said you speak from experience, you in fact do not.

    Carry my Slime Pump, Stop n Go plug kit with worms, tool kit, first aid kit in my panniers now. But, for years I carried it all in a tail bag strapped to my pillion seat. Still do occasionally. Spend a lot of time riding in BFE with spotty cell sevice. Lotta good tailbags available. 20161019_144115.jpg

    Oranges and Apples. That, now clarified, has no bearing on my personal experience. Mine was junk, as you obviously agree. My apologies. However, my original position still stands.

    Give it a sniff, Matt, but don't get too close. Everyone knows from where his words eminate.

    Little kit contains... super great awesome pump from harbor freight, that I have added about 12 feet of wire on to, all wrapped around it.

    Do they still sell the hoses that screws in place of a spark plug to use the engine to fill a tire?

    $29 HF pump, usually in my top box where it's easy to get to. The zippered bag has enough room to stash the plug gear, though I make sure I have the "T" handle reamer and plug needle, and lots of rubber cement.

    I use a Slime motorcycle pump and this tire repair kit,
    https://www.amazon.com/Tools-Heavy-Duty-Tire-Repair/dp/B01LWXS5P4

    I like this little kit, it's complete with pliers for puncture removal, gauge, valve core tool, plugs, and sturdy handled reamer and plug tool.

    I store the pump and repair kit in my top box when I'm solo. I move both to a 20l tank bag when I have a rider on a trip.( That's the only time I can tolerate a tank bag.) I like to pretty much empty out the top box when the wife is on the bike, moving as much weight forward as I can. She doesn't like wheelies. Lol.
