air compressor usage

Hi all. now that I know my sir ride works, how else would I use it? I see it has an outlet in the right hand saddlebag... could I use this to inflate my own tires? If so, what kind of adapter would I need to do that? What else can it be used for?


thanks

I had no idea a fz6r had that so I wouldn't know.

you could probably surmise that most likely scenario is that I just got my wing (2 days ago) and just hadn't updated the profile details.

I have the same on my 1992 Aspencade. You can purchase a 10ft hose from anyone who sells acessories for your bike. You can definitly use it to inflate tire on your bike. The handbook gives instructions to do so.



Happy Riding!!!

It does help to have it in your profile but please in the future reference what you are working on in your post.

Yes, it will slowly re-inflate a tire you have made an emergency plug repair to.
Time limits apply on compressor use-- for heat buildup and battery drain.

Many self-rescue riders carry a separate, faster 12volt compressor just for the tires...~$25

I personally carry the Slime air compressor. comes in a very small zipper case and has a long power cord with a stardard NEMA rubber two wire trailer type connector. i have the mating connector wired direct to the battery thru a fuse, this connector just barely hangs thru the opening in the side cover.

easy to power it up, and it works like a champ. it will air up my Michelin car tyre from 30# to 55# in about 5 minutes. did that once just to see. then i let the air down in stages until i was happy with the ride.

If you use it to op off your tires make sure you disconnect the air hose after use. If I remember right the compressor will not work to adjust your rear shock if the air hose is connected.

You COULD use it to fill a high pressure storage tank that's connected to a pneumatic ram under the pillion seat. That way, if there is too much noise coming from the back, you could hit a switch, dump the air into the ram, kicking your passenger straight off the back. Think James Bond ejector seat!

Not that I would ever do such a thing, but you did ask WHAT else it could be used for!

Im almost certain filling a high pressure tank would exceed not only the design limits but the practical functionality of said on-board compressor,
causing its life functions to cease with a most horrifying noise.
