Does NOT fit in the Fairing Compartment

Hey Charlie,

Unfortunately the pump does not fit in the Fairing Compartment, have just been out to the bike and tried it. Its close but no luck am afraid. The pump comes with a small handy bag containing the air hose attachment and whatever electrical connectors you need, I also put the Dynaplug repair kit in there as well. I have an SAE tail connected directly to the battery and plug it into that to avoid carrying Crocodile clips. The bag and contents take up very little space, I carry it with me always. Hope this helps.

Where are you from originally, and where did you first hear it? I apologize for the thread diversion; the origin of old expressions always interests me.

I grew up in NW FL, spent a cpl years in N GA.
I have been fortunate enough to work with a few limeys over the years.
I worked with two so long that I was speaking with their accent by the time I terminated my employment with them. People said it was a strange thing to hear a southern/british accent. Sorry, I have never been able to change my voice from what it is, even as a public speaker; no matter how hard I tried.
Love to hear Brits speak, except those that I can't understand a word they say! lol
Best.

Looks like Dynaplug is now using a different pump from the posted photos. However, the 4.75x6x2 inch dimensions (found them on their website) doesn't look like it will fit the fairing compartment. Maybe there is space under the seat?

Anyway, it looks like a pretty good kit altogether and easily packed along when the cases are on. It'll fit a jacket pocket otherwise I think.

I now carry it and a Safety Seal kit with me when touring. It's 2" in diameter, 9.5" long and weighs in at 1.5# on my digital scale.

A tenter is an old name for a cloth stretching frame, and the hooks secure the cloth to the frame.

Rush with hush, (and clunks).

On the products page of their website they show the picture as posted and call it the 'New Micro Pro'. Its also listed on Amazon as the same style.

Thanks for the link, I was missing the New Micro Pro pump on the Dynaplug site for some reason. I just ordered that pump and tool. I like that the pump has a 2nd port to check air pressure without removing the screw on connector to the tire. It is also a bit smaller than the other pump they sell.

I found that the Micro Pump will fit under the seat, either in front of or behind the battery. I wrapped it in bubble pack and plastic cling wrap. The electric cord (I only need the SAE plug, already have that connector on my battery), coiled hose, Dynaplug tool, small vice grips, small diagonal cutters, and air pressure gauge all fit in the left fairing compartment.

BTW, I found that my existing SAE plug installed by the dealership for attaching a charger had a 7.5 amp fuse and the Dynaplug Micro Pump has 15 amp fuses in the supplied wiring. Best sort that out prior to trying to use it.
