So here's a little video. Each 16Gram CO2 cartridge gave me about 4.5psi on a 190/55R17 Michelin PR4. So to get to 36psi it would take a minimum of 8 16G cartridges.
Very good observation about the fuse possibility. Looking forward to your results. Hoping the circuit withstands the inflator's demand.I have a couple of mini inflators. I used to carry one when I rode my Goldwing, but I had a separate 15A circuit for it's use, and I did use it a couple of times.
Have you tried one of these using the under seat power port on the Multi. I wonder if it will blow a fuse.
I'll probably repeat the experiment, later this week, using the inflators.
When I got my flat, a guy on a KTM 1190 Adventure stopped to help. We connected his MotoPump to the under-seat accessory plug. Their info says the pump draws less than 5A. Didn't blow a fuse but the accessory plug doesn't provide continuous power unless the bike is running, so I was constantly having to turn the bike on again. The MotoPump plug was somewhat unreliable. Every time the bike's power shut off, there was a 50:50 chance I'd have to pull the plug out of the socket and reconnect it to get the pump running again. If you go this route, I'd suggest connecting an SAE pigtail directly to the battery and using that to power your pump.Have you tried one of these using the under seat power port on the Multi.

For a heavy bike like the Multistrada, I wouldn't want to encourage excessive tire flex by riding with the pressures too low. We inflated to 30psi indicated (~= 25psi actual if all of the gauges are off by as much as mine) and the plug didn't last 5 miles. I didn't time how long the inflation took either on the road or when I tested my pump at home. I'd guess it was at least 20-30 minutes. Bike started without a problem afterwards in both cases.I certainly wouldn't go above 30 psi unless the plug was not holding air and could certainly ride a spirited pace at lower pressures. How long would you estimate to get to 28 lbs with the pump? 20 minutes? And if it took that long, I'd certainly have the bike running. That's just me-
