Kawasaki fork pump or aftermarket?

Recommended Posts

Picking up my new 17 kx450f tomorrow and apparently they are saying the pump doesn't come with it and they don't have any in stock to purchase so I will have to order.

 

Am I better off going with the Kawasaki brand pump or is the aftermarket ones (works connections) better?

 

Also, not sure if they have one there for setting up the bikes but I assume they would need one in order to pdi the bike and put the correct pressure in right? The way the bike was sitting on the floor the forks we rock hard so I assume they had way too much air in them?

Here's the one I use. Has the lossless connector right on the hose.

I'm not  100% positive but I believe the works connection one you have to use a separate lossless connector.
