80 miles from the nearsest gas station,flat tire.The bike has an onboard compressor with outlet valve.What good is it without an air hose to pump up the tire? Scrounged a 12v pump to get home.
I figure a small air hose with female fitting on each end would work. Carrying a 12v pump now but a coiled air hose would be smaller and lighter,or is the onboard compressor not designed for that?

brother ron, fix-a-flat is not good on our mag wheels. eats 'em up not to mention that fix-a-flat is full of water ( not good for steel wheels )

bstar you can purchase a hose that connects to the outlet in the right saddlebag, and the key has to be in certain position to use it (I don't remember which one) It's best to carry a small 12v. air pump. the one on the bike is good for adding air but not for filling a flat. Here is a great one and it is very small, it called Slime Air Compressor

Air Compressor

Thanks for the reply about the air compressor etc. Yes,I now carry a small air compressor in the trunk.I have always carried one in my ATV's because we're so far off any main routes, but never thought about the Bike til that experience, and who carries a spare on a Goldwing Ha Ha, although I did talk to a fellow on a BMW heading for
Alaska with 2 new Knobbies strapped to the back of his seat. :)
