Re: On board air for the trails.

i dont think in an inspection they can nab you..but we dont have those here, in FL they are technically illeagle, if they hear it, not see it.., but the cops dont mind as long as you use them as a horn and u dont just ride down through town honking.

Re: On board air for the trails.

I don't get inspection but i also keep my oba off unless i am on long rides or on the trails. my switch is hidden from view too so that helps.
Try Ebay for a good horn like Hemijon said, good stuff on there.

Re: On board air for the trails.

Technically they are illegal cause train horns are waaay to loud. But dont get caught using them. You can get trucker horns too, those are street legal. Train horns need to be heard from miles away.

Re: On board air for the trails.

What about a stand alone air compressor? Those Duracell Powerpacks, the ones that can jumpstart your car come with an air compressor. Would it have enough power to air up your tires when your done?

I would assume it could easily inflate the tires back up and not consume a lot of battery power. Would you agree?

Re: On board air for the trails.

I would guess it can be recharged using the cigarette lighter.. it would be kinda stupid if that was not possible.
