How many “starts” are stored in a tank?

For you physics fans, it all goes back to Boyle’s Gas Law (remember him?). Well, P1 x V1 = P2 x V2 (almost… cheating a bit here, as the process is not adiabatic).

KickMagic Starter ChartSimply speaking, more volume and more pressure means more starts. Our standard 50 cu-in tank at 4500 psi will typically yield 90 attempts (Please note, I say attempts. Attempts become actual starts if your motorcycle is running well!). Different pressures and different tank sizes provide different amounts of stored energy (and, hence, start attempts). The table at the right has been verified through testing at ambient conditions.

Please refer to the owner’s manual for more information and tips on conserving your stored bottle air.
