CyclePump In For Repair After 9 Years On The Road

Occasionally a Customer sends us a CyclePump for a repair, or an upgrade, or a warranty claim.  

I personally do all the warranty and repair work because I want to make sure their CyclePump is returned to them in perfect operating condition.  This is part of my commitment to quality, as seen in this video:  I Love Air – The CyclePump Story

Today I worked on two different pumps, one belonging to Mike Bosworth and one from Jeff Potter.  Both reported that the motor was still running, but pressure build-up was slow.  That’s indicative of dirt in the valve assembly.  Easy to fix here in our shop.

Inside the lid of each CyclePump we always write the date of manufacture and the name of the technician who built it.  Both of these pumps were built by Nick, one in June ’09 and one in September ’09.  Both pumps showed signs of heavy use on the trail, and there was a lot of crud inside the case.  

Today I updated those notes, writing my name inside the lid and documenting the work I did to each pump.  This is my way of continuing the legacy of performance and reliability that’s built into every CyclePump.

After I made each repair and installed the upgrades, I tested each unit to make sure it passed our strict quality control standards.
Switch √ Check
Motor unit √ Check
Compressor unit √ Check
Hose √ Check
Air Chuck √ Check
Wiring harness √ Check
Inflation time √ Check
Both units passed, both received Mr. BestRest’s seal of approval.  When I was done with my work they looked like this:

Back in 2009 Mike and Jeff made an investment in their CyclePump – 9 years later their investment is still returning dividends.

In this day and age it’s rare to find a product that has such a good reputation, and it’s unheard of to find a product with a Lifetime Warranty. Keep that in mind when you purchase a tire inflator for your 2-wheeled travels.  You can pay less for another inflator, but you’ll get less. Yes, you’ll pay more for a CyclePump, but you’ll get more for your money.  Just ask Mike and Jeff…

In 2000 I started BestRest Products - our first product was a folding back rest, hence the name of the company. Over the years I kept designing and inventing gear. Today we have over 300 products in our store, and I created many of them. I ride a BMW R1200GS, a BMW F800GS, a Honda XR650R, and two KTM 450-EXCs. Plus I have a couple quads that I keep at a summer cabin. I spend most of my free time riding with my wife Judy. When not riding I'm answering the phones at BestRest or working in the shop on some project. I'm also the author of "How To Ride A Motorcycle Off Road", which is a free book you can download from the website.

    Mine is 12 years old. Bought in 2005 for an Alaska trip, still in constant use. It has never failed, ever.
    Have mounted tires and set beads with it, filled tires a bazillion times, it keeps going. I don’t go on a trip without it.
