Moto D Tire Warmers (Cheaper than the rest!)

I got a set of Moto D Racing dual temp tire warmers. I'm just getting started into tracking a bike, but I was getting cold tears on my tires.

These are good quality warmers! I don't see what is the big difference between really expensive Chicken Hawks or other brands? These come with a fantastic warranty, (Same or even better than the expensive warmers) They appear to be very durable and not like some Hong Kong replica stuff.

http://motodracing.com/accessories.h...roduct=7507110

Click link below for local dealers.
http://motodracing.com/dealers.html

The Houston Dealer will do them for $140 for pickup and $150 shipped. They are 149.99 plus S& H(About another $10) on the Moto D racing website, so save the s&h and buy locally!

Details:
Nomex / Kevlar construction with 1-year "Bullet Proof" warranty.
Fits 120 front / 180-190 rear.
Dual-Temp for Single-Temp price!
Quick Power Up.
Red/Green Indicator Light.
Level I / Low – to keep tires warm (maintain) at 60C / 140F. After coming in from riding, in between sessions, put on Level I.
Level II / High – for heating up tires to 80C / 175F. Before going out, turn up to Level II to get tires up to max temp. Don’t leave on Level II for longer than 45 minutes.
1-Year “Bullet Proof” Warranty, if they fail due to a manufacturing defect we repair or replace, if they fail because YOU left them on and burnt them out or your girlfriend left them in the middle of the street and you rode over them with your bike (user negligence), we replace them (once) for $50!
BTW, I couldn't find anything about warranty or replacements on the chicken hawk website?
Carry Bag Included.

I would have liked to have told you who the local vendor is, but I cannot because they are not a site sponsor.....YET!!! I'm trying to follow the rules (for once)
I know a few others who are using these warmers also and no complaints!

I'm looking into buying warmers. Can someone please provide a quick user review that have been using them for a few months? 150$ is an awesome price, but I'm not quick to jump on it without some solid user review.

Thanks

I've used them for a few track days and they've worked just fine for me so far. But can't really compare to any other brands because these are the only ones I've ever had.

There is no reason why the expensive ones are expensive.

It's a heating pad with a thermostat. There is also no reason why cheaper ones can't be as good as the expensive ones.

The only real difference would be in the materials and you can judge for yourself if they a crappy or not.

Not all tire warmers get tires to the same temp. This probably doesn't matter to a track day guy, though.

I've never tried these warmers but I'm sure if they put heat in the tires then they're good enough for track days.

Although I don't have personal experience with tire warmers, but from what I've read, the time it takes to get the tires up to set temp can also differ from different brands/quality. Although that's probably more important to a racer and not as crucial for a trackday enthusiast.
