Size does matter Review by Mark
Small package in this case is a good thing. Has the power to fill, packs down small. The in-line cord switch is a little hinkey - takes a few times to get it to close the circuit. (Posted on 7/8/14)
Better than expected Review by Cathleen
Gave it to my husband for his birthday. He has used it twice and is surprised at how fast it will pump up a flat tire. From zero to forty-seven pounds in just a few minutes. He doesn't like the exposed wires though. He fears they will be vulnerable to breakage floating around in a saddlebag. (Posted on 4/30/14)
not a good choice Review by Darren
I thought this would be nice because it is the smallest of the options and less expensive. The tab that locks the nozzle to the valve stem broke completely off the very first time I used it. Now I am out of country and finding this bit is impossible. Go with the Cycle Pump. I have had one for years ant it still works. (Posted on 4/28/14)
It Works Review by Trundlebike
Lost my first one to a thief, had to have another. Functional, durable, and has a great mechanical presence. Put loctite on all the screws and replace the switch if you must, but this device is a keeper. (Posted on 4/11/14)
Works but with problems Review by Jerry
As others have stated the switch is terrible. I have had mine about 5 years. First time I used it (for practice) it went OK except extra practice getting the hose to clamp on deep enough to let air in. Next time the switch did not work. I had to take it apart and reconnect it. A couple of more times all OK just had to be careful seating the hose clamp and taking it off. The last time It aired up the tire but not to full pressure but the plastic gear cover came off, screws fell out. I am shopping for a better one. (Posted on 4/5/14)
Replace the Switch Review by Dean
As it has been said numerous times; the switch is junk. Save yourself a potential crappy day and replace it right off. I've used mine a couple of times to repair tubeless flats and it works pretty well. (Posted on 3/12/14)
Mini with an M Review by Dave
Stores perfect under the tail section compartment of my R1200RT. Fabricated a couple of additional wire harnesses to work with the BMW power outlet and clips direct off a battery. Always remove the pump after washing the bike or a trip and test a couple time a year. (Posted on 12/2/13)
It's The Switch..... Review by Mike
The pump is powerful, fast, connects to the SAE plug on my Tiger, and is relatively compact, however like Franken Beemer and Woody, I found the switch to be...well, horrible. Last week I was all alone ten miles north of Mann Lake OR (the least populated area in the lower 48). I needed to "air up" after riding 42 miles of gravel, and the switch would only work if I pulled on the wires with one hand. Try airing a tire with one hand sometime. Astonishingly, my friend Bill from Maine experienced the same thing with the same model pump the foillowing day. A great pump and motor, but install a better switch when transiting the "Empty Places". (Posted on 9/12/13)
Compact Pump Review by John
After looking at several 12 VDC moto air pumps I decided to buy the Stitch version, mainly because of the easy to attach valve fitting, and better reliability reviews. All of the reviews pointed out the obvious deficiencies in this product, and as a former electronics technician I can relate to a couple of them. NUMBER 1. The electrical connections to the pump motor are bare and uninsulated. That is just sloppy design, and it would be easy for them to correct with a couple of layers of shrink tubing. I'll do that immediately. NUMBER 2. The motor and gear assembly are exposed, which leads me to believe this pump is adapted from something else. The plastic backbone (frame) seems to have obviously been designed to attach to something else; likely the other half of the motor/gear cover. NUMBER 3. The switch is a cheezy rotary lamp switch, which will likely need to be replaced with something a bit more rugged. It wouldn't take a lot of effort for Stitch to complete this design by just adding a motor/gear cover to the existing backbone (frame), then putting a rugged switch on that cover. Those few changes would create something that would look and operate like a professional product. Right now it looks like something someone knocked up in their garage. The other products out there either had a lot of reliability issues, which you don't want on some back road with a flat; or the valve connector was difficult to use, or unreliable. The pump works well but these other issues indicate a lack of professional design. (Posted on 7/19/13)
Perfect for R1150GS Review by Manuel
I have installed the cables to this little pump to the battery and fed then under the saddle to a good point to zip tie it for eazy access. Also bonus the pump with it's nice cover bag fit perfectly in the space that is left betwen the battery lower back side of gas tank and saddle on my 2004 R1150GS Adv. Just had to use it for the first time last week. After plugging the tyre pumping it up was slow.. maybe 10-15 min.. I did give it a rest in fear I may overheat the pump.. but all in all solid, compact and well gets the job done! And I am very happy with my purchase.. (Posted on 7/9/13)

Mini Compressor

This Mini Compressor surprised us. I was afraid that after a few years of bouncing around inside a saddle bag or pack this might not work when needed. I was wrong. (After once experiencing a flat in a fairly remote place I found both long-carried innertube-filling pumps -- an old Enginair hose kit and a 'backup' bicycle tire pump -- had failed. Those simple tools had both been damaged by me not packing them away carefully enough.) In contrast the little Mini Compressor has been working for our customers when its been most needed. Who knew that it would turn out to be so reliable?
