    The cylinders won't fully inflate your tyre to the correct pressure no matter how many you use. Even if you have "enough" if you're plug doesn't seal 1st time you can still end up stuck at the side of the road. I have one of these airman pumps, plus the plug kits

    I also have a direct fused lead from my battery (It's actually my optimate lead) rather than use the onboard din socket as if you have a bike with canbus the current draw from the pump can exceed it's rated capacity which can mean that the canbus thinks there's a fault and switches the power off

    I have a Stop n Go kit with the mushrooms and a gun to put it in.
    But: when my tyres were2 weeks and about a thousand miles old, I went out with friends for a Sunday run. On the second half of a lap round a roundabout (mate has directional issues!!!) my rear tyre decided to stop being round. The kit lives in the topbox that I use for work and bogging off away far away :worried:. My last bike had enough room for this, waterproofs, tools,4 bottles of beer and some lunch under the seat! The Speed Triple has room for the f**king battery!!!

    Transmission is an "Action" example The transmission of a virus or disease ! A gearbox is the device through which power is "Transmitted" from one location enabling a variation in speed or power ! It enables torque or speed selection ! Another example your leg transmits the power of the muscles in it to enable you to walk or run - speed or torque. It isn't a "transmission". Transmission is an action !!!

    My tyre still holding air or is it Aire. Dry nitrogen is probably better. Do y'all eat popcorn?

    A transmission is a machine in a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of the power. Often the term transmission refers simply to the gearbox that uses gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a rotating power source to another device.[1][2]

    In British English, the term transmission refers to the whole drivetrain, including clutch, gearbox, prop shaft (for rear-wheel drive), differential, and final drive shafts. In American English, however, the term refers more specifically to the gearbox alone, and detailed usage differs

    There are three main reasons.

    -- Mr. Webster, who simplified the spelling of words such as "colour" (color) and "traveller" (traveler) when he compiled his dictionary
    -- American English began to diverge from British English several hundred years ago, so the American language often uses the word or spelling (e.g. fall for autumn, "z" in words such as recogniZe) that was once customary in British English, whereas British English has changed
    -- new words created since the Declaration of Independence, e.g. aluminum/aluminium.

    "Nucular" (nuclear), however, is just wrong!
