What do y'all use to run a compressor from on the bike and how have you got it wired up. There are several options but I'd like to hear what works for you ? Cheers

I use the Airman Tour, it fits under the seat just in front of the battery. It uses too much current for the canbus accessory socket on the front of the bike so rather than butcher the male connection on the Airman i just bought a female connection to plug it into with some alligator clips on the cable to attach to the battery terminals.

Stop and Go Mini Air Compressor. Sells on Amazon US., or Twisted Throttle for about 34 dollars. It has 3 cables, lighter plug, battery clamps and a battery tender cable. Everything is in a little zipper case that fits under the seat. Good reviews. Only bad reviews I saw, were people trying to use it for car tires.

I bought the MotoPressor 12v Tyre Inflator from Nippy Normans for £30. Amazingly small and effective, though it gets pretty hot! It comes with croc clips which go straight on the battery.

Dynaplug compressor under the seat, along with a dynaplug repair kit.

Works from the Aux power socket. Some people have said it can trip the current limit but seems to be fine for me.

Dont carry a tyre inflator but use a normal car compressor at home but it draws too much power to use in the Aux socket, so I purchased a transformer and socket from Amazon (similar to a laptop charger) and plug directly into the mains socket. Works fine and can use on the car as well.
