I am interested in putting an on board air compressor where the canister was. Has anyone done this and, if so, can you upload some pictures so I can get an idea of setup? I would be eternally grateful.
This is something I have also been considering. I believe jzeller has done this but not sure if he has any pictures. I think I remember him saying that he removed the plastic coverings of the compressor to save on space.I am interested in putting an on board air compressor where the canister was.

If you ever had to fix a flat tire on the road ,... you would know.Sounds like a good idea, but why would you want to?
No but it is real handy when you need to air up a flat tire that you just pugged. And you 200 miles form anything.Sounds like a good idea, but why would you want to? On harley, it was to inflate and deflate air shocks, but i don't think they make an air shock for the LT do they?
They are made for low volume and high pressure. I would venture to say it would take a half to full hour to inflate a rear LT tire with one of those.I had a tiny air compressor, not many are made very well, the give up unexpectidely. A small bicycle pump is way better than nothing, can do the pressure needed and would save so much weight and space.
Rand, good idea using the unused alarm connector to power your pump. I'm installing a NAPA fuel pump for an aux fuel tank and was contemplating on where to power it from until your post. The NAPA pump I'm using draws 5 Amps.Here's a couple of photos of a Thomas pump that I installed under the top case back in 2008.
It's wired to the unused alarm connector which goes to the horn, brake light & alarm fuse (#3, 15 Amp).
A little simpler than Ari's installation ... I think.
