5lb would be the largest I would want on a bike but it MIGHT work. Our PD cars carry 10lb extinguishers. I spec'ed 10 lb because its light enough any PD officer can handle it, but has enough capacity to either put out an engine compartment fire on an automobile or buy enough time until the FD arrives.
Who are you with??? I retired from City of Glendale Arizona a little over two years ago......I was in Fleet Operation. My title was "Shop Services Supervisor", but I was #2 guy in the department and wore LOTS of hats.....didn't think I'd have to do that in a city of 250K people......
We have a bit in common. I am located near Roanoke VA. Worked for the Vinton Va PD for 28 years as an LEO. Retired last Wednesday as Lt (in charge of patrol division). Bought my military time and went out with 32+ years in retirement. During those years, I was also in the volunteer FD and went out with 27 years service as A/C. So I know how it is to wear a few hats.
Did 26 years with them, bought my Navy time and went out with just over 30 years.......<sfsf>
Dry powder could certainly screw up an engine if it were sucked into an air intake but that may be a chance you have to take as opposed to letting the vehicle burn until its totalled.
Only if ya shot it directly into the air cleaner AND if your air filter wasn't any good.....
I've seen a few vehicles that were run w/o air cleaners.
Like Alan said.....they all go out eventually.....
Only other scenario would be a Class D fire and I don't know anyone who routinely carries purple K.
We did onboard ship.... <sfsf>, I was in the Navy back when the ships were made of wood and the men were made of iron.
Now the men are made of wood? <sfsf>
