I got one of these (in black) from Fleabay a couple of years ago.  :152:
Does take a long time to pump the rear tyre up but does do it.  :169:
Small enough to fit under seat  :028:

But also get a 90Deg valve adaptor as it makes it easier to connect :123A:

I bought one of these a couple of years ago.... I see the price may have increased.... it is good though

Check the 'draw' of the pump as if it's greater than the fuse on your accessory socket it will blow the fuse

I've had the CyclePump Air Compressor since about 2010 and it works great expensive but worth it. I also use the Stop N Go mushroom type tire plugging kit.....

Mine came with everything needed if you were going to use a 12V Outlet or hooking up to the Battery...

Not had to use it yet, what I would say is it doesn't fit under the seat :151:

A nice man with a Harley used one of these to repair a puncture on rear tyre a couple of years ago. Kit basically injects a mushroom head first into your tyre. You pull it tight with the tale a trim it off.

The gas cylinders inflated the tyre sufficiently to get to an air pump. Lasted 500+ miles till I swapped tyre.

I went straight out to buy one. Fits under seat.

Airman pump. Will blow auxiliary socket fuse but straight off battery is OK.

Hi doc,
I got my one from Metal Mule Ltd., based in Dorset, UK. FYI, I got the air pump together with the separate tyre gauge fitted with a 90 chuck which makes connection to the tyre valve a doddle. Like weljo, I have also got the Stop & Go Tyre Plugger puncture repair kit. Both fit under the seat of the V1K and, for what it's worth, I have used both in anger, with an excellent result, when I got a rear tyre puncture in France. Yes, it is an expensive piece of kit but, in my experience, well worth the money to get you reliably out of that sticky situation when you most need it. Furthermore, post repairing a puncture, there is no need to ride carefully to a petrol station to top up the tyre pressure as the air pump will comfortably inflate the tyre to the correct working pressure, in my case, 42psi. I hope that helps.
