Onboard CO2 Setup

I am in the process of designing an onboard CO2 system for the Teryx.

Without going into too much detail, would anyone be interested in something like this?

Sure if you desing an air powered blender too. Just kidding I know when at the dunes or rock crawling it is a good idea to air down and sometimes we air down to much so this would be a great addition. Some CO2 systems even run air tools so that is a plus for extended trail rides on hard core trails.

CO2 for the tire air pressure? Would it be easier to just use a little air compressor that plugs into the cigarette lighter?

Yes, not only would you be able air up tires and reset beads, but you could also potentially run air tools from it.

The output of a little electrical pump would be fine for airing up, however, would not give you the ability of resetting a bead or running any sort of air tools.

Ah, true. So the CO2 would be in a tank? Mounted somewhere on your Teryx? How big of a tank? I am curious.

I am working on tank sizes, however, yes it would be mounted to the cage.

I'm a Powertank dealer and had them put together a small system for King Sand Cars. I had the chance to use it at around 11pm at night while our group was riding through the dunes on the way back to camp. We were a long ways out and one of the buggy's hit a witch eye and blew the bead off the rear tire.

Everyone was tired and nobody felt like taking the rim/tire off, heading back to camp to fix it and bringing it back, bolt it on...etc. It would have taken at least a couple hours before we'd be out.

I took my Powertank bottle off my car and walked up to where everyone was staring at the tire and bitching. I told them we might be able to air it back up and held up my little 20oz bottle....they all laughed...as this was a BIG paddle tire we were looking at. Nobody thought that bottle had enough in it to seat the bead.

Couple guys put their weight on the tire to make a seal and I pulled the trigger. The tire got rock hard and seated the bead. When I took it to the paintball shop it was still half full. I was totally impressed....so were my buddy's they all have one now

Beats the hell out of carrying a spare tire, jack and tools to remove your wheel. The kit I sell comes with tire plugs and one bottle will last a very long time with side x side tires.



The link to the kit is here:

Yes, the powertank equipment is top notch. I actually have a 10# Powertank and bracket, however, that mounted to the cage would like like I was distributing propane

Their 2.5# setup is nice though!

I think it is Cost prohibitive for our uses, I have set a Bead on many a ATV tire with the little Plug in Compressors and a racthet Strap, Granted our tires are a little bigger than ATV tires but not much

That is a valid point for sure. I was also considering it for the potential use of air tools.
