That is not how you warm up the tire boy. Gasoline and a match should do the trick.:laughing6

Better sign up for the dyno raffle again.

I use either Suzuka or Chicken Hawk warmers, single temp works fine, or you can get the switchable kind.

I have heard many used the two you mentioned but it carries a price tag that is too steep for my pocket. What do you think about sumomoto with the adjustable temp? Does the color makes a difference? I noticed that it carries a different price tag.:dontknow:

Might take a look at Motogp brand.
But if Patrick says Suzuka or Chicken Hawk are good for the price you can't go wrong.
Mine are single temp thermostatically controlled and they seem fine. They are Graves so are no doubt over priced, but came with the bike .

I am the trackside vendor for Suzuka. I have the Single temps in stock. I personally like the simplicity of the single temp model. Just wrap them on and plug them in.
PM'd a price.

Thanks John but I couldn't afford this quality from Suzuka or chicken hawk just yet. I wouldn't mind owning what the pro used but my piggy bank is very very small.

Don't knock the TYR SOX.............. I ran my first whole season with them and got all my money out of them when I sold them. GREAT product for the money and WELL PROVEN. I use C/H's now and a few other brands I've collected over a few seasons, but for the money you will not find a better entery level warmer than the SOX. Simple, and bullet proof, just remember to unplug them and you'll never have a worry.

I know this is a late post, but just pulled the trigger on the sumomoto adjustable warmers. Seemed the best bang for the buck, and I was not ready to spend 600 for a set from other makers. It even says the warmers disconnect themselves when you take them off the tire, which means no accidental leaving them on to roast. We will see. I got them for 220 shipped. Will get to use them on the 24th at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

I used Tyr Sox for 3 years without issue. As long as you take care of 'em, they'll take care of you juuuuuust fine. Not to metion that Richard is a helluva nice guy.

I've never used the Sumomoto, so I can't comment on them.

I use Suzuka now, and love 'em.

Technology on this particular item is not that advanced with the basic models, but I do enjoy the quality of the Suzuka and the automatic thermostat.

By the way, "Ciaka", who are you? It's appropriate to introduce yourself in the introduction forum when you're a new member.

I had a suzuka and the front burned out on me and the rear one melted the nylon. someone rolled up the warmer and didn't unplug it. I only used it 3 trackdays.
