If you want a power pump then get one like this and take the case off it will pop a tire bead out to the rim after a puncher and is smaller than a hand pump have carried one on my bikes for years can be had ever cheaper if you look around

Yep it's a old cheap way to get a compact pump you can get fancy with it and put a cover over the open piston crank once the cover is off if you like most don't bother just watch holding it when it's running it could mash your fingers real quick. hold it by the air pipe as the little bugger get's hot real fast as well. it's got me out the **** at the road side a handful of times now and like wise to people I have helped out at the road side or been riding with.

Only 10 years behind..

've been carrying a 12v Motopressor around for a few years now, ever since Dobbo pumped my tyre up on the side of the road in not much more time than it would've taken me to get just get some shape in the tube with a hand pump. Only extra work was taking the sidecover off to access the battery, as I hadn't bothered with a connection cable.

I actually used it a few months ago. Roadside repair in western Victoria.
Unfortunately, it didn't work because I dropped it in the dust as I took it out of the bag. Not realising, the dust got into the cylinder and under the air valve - which is really just a flap of spring steel that flexes with the air pressure of the piston.
This thing is so simple, you can pull it apart, clean it and put it back together by removing the two bolts that hold the cylinder to the crankcase.  Phillips driver, IIRC.

Fortunately in my case, there were some Telstra blokes working about a km from where I replaced the tube. One of them had a pump.

When I got a better look at it, I cleaned away the dust and dirt and the pump worked properly again. Touch wood, I will carry it around for another 6 years and not have to pull it out in anger.

That'd be the dirt that held the valve open, after I dropped it.
