Hi Guys,

I am using the Michelin micro compressor and I am plugging it directly to the 12v power outlet without any issues.



Do you use this on 2019 se bike? What fuse have you got in it? It just seems to me if it's a 3.5amp fuse then it would be close to blowing fuse.

Hello,

I am using it on 2013 V1k and I am not sure how amps is the fuse on the compressor. It is glass one, but it works without blowing any fuses.

The 2019 versus is 3.5amp and that compressor is 4amp so big chance it will blow the fuse.

The accessory outlet fuse is 7,5 A both on MY 2015 and 2019.
So, if that compressor really drawns only 4 A it's ok.

Looks like it only draws 4 amps on a bad day, seems like a great option!
Are you sure? 4 A (i.e. only 56 W at 14 V) seem to me very a low drain for a compressor.
