Be sure to experiment a bit, you may have to up the in-line fuse a little depending on what compressor you buy.
Yeah, I wired my VFR with a battery tender....and the FJR I just bought came with one installed already, so I'm in luck! Amazon has several little emergency compressors wired for battery tender it looks like. In the meantime I already have a couple of those c02 emergency inflators I carry.
