    Received mine yesterday.....HOLY CRAP IT'S DINKY! I've seen the photos but it wasn't until I opened the box and checked it out did I realize just how compact you had it made. I'll be interested to see if it can seat a K60

    Thanks! A lot of development work went into making it smaller and keeping the performance without any heat issues. I think you will be happy with it. There are a lot of variables in seating a bead. I have had great luck by spraying my windex like shield cleaner around the rim as I try to seat the bead. It is slippery when wet but dries with no residue and helps seal a bit as the tire seats.

    The other benefit of the Air Shot is that it goes to 100 psi, so Tubliss users can use it to inflate the inner bladder as well as the tire.

    I got mine a few days ago, used it today to air up my tires when I got back to pavement. Works very well, made quick work of airing back up (I didnt time it, but well less than 1 minute per tire). It fits perfectly where I had planned for it to go (former ABS box on a KTM 990 along with a tool pouch). While it was daylight when I used it, I am sure that little LED would come in very handy at night! I really liked being able to monitor the air pressure as it pumped up by putting the gauge on it. The only extraordinarly small nit pick was I had a bit of difficulty screwing the air hose on my rear tire valve stem - hard to get my hand in there between the spokes, around the brake rotor, while trying to keep the air hose stretched out. I will get used to it and figure that out I am sure. (though a 90 degree angled tip would be handy).

    Great product! I am very happy with it!

    We have seated many beads with a bike pump, as rob said, lube of some sort is helpful. We generally use the stuff from napa, but soap and water or windshield cleaner work too

    Rec'd the new pumps toady. Awesome. Smaller than expected. Hard to beat the original cuz of the built in pressure gauge, but this one fits under the seat of my bike.
    Great Job,Rob!

    Given the diminutive size, it is amazing how fast it inflates. :thumb

    Well, took it to Romney and it got some action. Thought I'd have to wait to use it. Aired down the heck out of my E07's and decided to air them back up with the new pump. It was dark, initially I was like wtf do I need a light for, beautiful feature. Took a lil while, it's a little guy but didn't take forever. I didn't read the instructions but I wasn't able to check the air pressure from the red cap valve, it was maxed out when inflating and didn't read after shutting it off, it was pouring rain so it's likely operator error. Just waited and set the air down to where I wanted and was tickled with the little spud. Very happy with the purchase and referred a couple other knuckle heads who heard it chugging away filling my tires. 10/10 would buy again.

    Nada, typed it as I was going to sleep. I've already had my share anyway, I'm a quitter.

    Thanks for the post! Guessing that was a WET ride. We headed to VT the same weekend because it looked a bit drier. Had planned to head to VA/WV but re-routed.

    I have a big problem with my MotoPump.
    The unit I purchased in February 2007 is still running as well as the day I purchased it. It's done lets say a lot of miles on several bikes and besides some wear on the carry bag (a small hole actually) it's as good as the day it arrived in Australia.
    How the heck can I justify buying one of these new fancy pumps when I can't break the one I have?
    Please help this is serious.
