About US

Products by Riders for Riders.
Developing and growing Motopumps since 2005.

We are a family of riders in the Fingerlakes region of Upstate NY.  The original MotoPump was built in 2005 when I had 3 flat tires within about a six week span of time.  One of the flats happened on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, two up, fully loaded, on a weekend.  After getting flatbedded to a dealer, and spending half a day waiting for the tire to be replaced, we rode away with a $280 bill and a significantly shortened tour.  I decided at that point that I was going to be self sufficient. 

When we got home, I started working on making a small but powerful 12v inflator and tire plugging kit that I would always have with me.  The MotoPump was born.  After showing it to a few fellow riders and being urged to build and sell them, I decided to to just that.  6000+ hand built pumps later MotoPumps.com has designed and introduced the new MotoPump Mini Pro.  It is the most compact, advanced and feature filled pump on the market!  We have partnered with Dynaplug and Crampbuster, because we use both products and think the moto touring world is better with them in it.  Everything we sell, we either created or use ourselves.  There is no better endorsement than that!

FAQ's

The MotoPump line is made to be the smallest, lightest, best performing 12v inflator on the market. They have features not found in any other inflators on the market. Zero loss Schrader valve connectors, LED work lights, durable, coiled air hoses, on-board pressure monitoring, back-lit pressure gauge on the Mini Pro, Cig/BMW style convertible connectors, battery clips, SAE connectors on main power cords and battery ring terminal to SAE plugs included as well. MotoPumps are designed by a rider, for riders, and they also work on your larger vehicles.

That depends on your needs, and your ride. The Air Shot is smaller, packs lighter and has a max pressure over 100 PSI for use with the Neutech TUbliss tire conversion kits. The Mini Pro has more convenience features and longer power cords and air hose, which makes it better suited to use with motorcycles and cars and trucks. Both inflators have similar performance inflating to 50 PSI.

That depends on your tire size and pressure needed. The MotoPump will inflate an average motorcycle tire to 36 PSI in under 5 minutes. They will inflate an average car tire to 34 PSI in less than 10 minutes. They will air up a low tire in a matter of a minute or less.

There is no maximum run time for either the Air Shot or the Mini Pro. Both have all metal gears, high efficiency motors, fans on the motor shaft to cool the motor and compressor assembly and Teflon coated piston rings. All these features combine to limit friction and heat build up so we have no issues with overheating no matter how hard you are running your MotoPump.

Both the Mini Pro and Air Shot have a 5 year, no BS warranty. Unless you have modified the pump or obviously abused and misused it, we will repair or replace any MotoPump that fails within 5 years of your date of purchase.

No, unless your battery is nearly dead, you don’t need to have the vehicle running while you are using the MotoPump to inflate your tires. Both pumps draw less than 5 amps under load and will run for two hours before a 10 amp hour battery is completely depleted. With an average inflation time of about 5 minutes, this is not an issue. If you do choose to have your vehicle running during inflation, the pump will run a bit faster due to the higher voltage at your battery, so your inflation time will be reduced.

Yes, either MotoPump will work with vehicles other than a motorcycle. Inflation time varies by tire size, volume and pressure requirements. There is no run-time limit for the MotoPump. The Mini Pro is more suited to larger vehicles that need 50 PSI or less as it has a longer power cord and air hose.

Both the Mini Pro and Air Shot draw less than 5 amps at 40 PSI.

The Mini Pro Standard includes the inflator, Cig/BMW style plug, SAE main power cord. The Deluxe Kit adds a neoprene zippered carry case, Battery Clips and Battery Ring Terminals to SAE cable to install on the battery.

Probably. While we have seen a few bikes where the CAN BUS controlled power outlet would not provide enough power, most are set to allow up to 5 amps draw at 12 volts. No worries, we include many connector options to allow you to power your MotoPump regardless of the mood of your CAN BUS controller.

The Air Shot comes with a main SAE power cord, a CIG/BMW style cable, battery clips and battery ring terminals to SAE cord.

That is an innovative feature to allow you to monitor your inflation progress without having to remove the inflator from the valve stem. We include a stainless steel bodied pencil type gauge for your convenience. Of course, you can also use your favorite pressure gauge. Pressure readings can be taken while the pump is running.

That depends. If the tire is holding air and it is just a matter of pressure, yes, most likely it will. If the tire is cold, deformed and not seated on the side of the bead, no 12 volt inflator can make enough volume to seat the bead. I have had excellent success seating the bead of motorcycle tires using a bit of “windex” visor cleaner. The liquid helps the bead seal, slide and dries without any slippery residue. I always have a little spray bottle in my kit to clean my visor, glasses or goggles.

No, Schrader and Presta are different sizes. We do stock a small number of Schrader to Presta conversion fittings. Let us know if you need one.

No. Both MotoPumps models require the operator to turn the unit on and off when the desired pressure is reached.

No. Both the Air Shot and Mini Pro are maintenance free. Just keep them in their cases when not in use, clean and dry and they will provide years of trouble free service. If you MotoPump becomes wet or dusty, blow it out with compressed air, let it dry and use as normal. If you would like us to examine or service your MotoPump, return it to us and we will take care of you.

18 Gauge wire is used in our connectors. It will support more than 20 amps at 12 volts, leaving you plenty of head room.



Troubleshooting

Thoroughly read the instructions that are included with your MotoPump.

Pull ALL of the cables out of the back of the cord storage compartment. Let me repeat that. Pull ALL of the cables out of the back of the MotoPump. There is both a main power cable and the Cig/BMW style plug terminated in an SAE connector. You were plugged into the SAE end of the Cig/BMW extension, not the MotoPump.

Check the fuse on the existing Battery Tender Tail. Some Battery Tender cables were supplied with a 2.5 amp fuse from the Deltran factory. The MotoPump draws about 5 amps and most likely blew that fuse. Upgrade that fuse to a 10-20 amp fuse and you will be back in business.

Try the MotoPump in another power source. Another vehicle’s cig lighter receptacle, use the battery clips to go directly to the battery terminals.

The polarity of your power source is reversed. The Mini Pro has polarity protection so the pump’s electronics won’t be damaged by a reverse polarity power source.
