Just don't be the guy (there are lots) with Chicken Hawks + Honda generator, but not so good tires, tires in poor condition, mediocre suspension/bike setup, $500 Chinese leathers that don't fit well. You have to prioritize, I don't know where so many people seem to get the idea that tire warmers are a necessity to go near a racetrack.

I would definitely work on suspension first, tires, protective gear, then warmers.
You can get DOT tires up to temp real quick these days.
That would save you not only warmer costs, gut generator costs as well.
However, you are the best person who knows what you want. Good luck whichever way you go.

The BT090 rear and BT002 front is what I was running at GSS and that is what Brandon will be sprinting on at Cresson this weekend. The set-up works very well.

Excellent, that is what I needed. I have the Race Tech internals on the front forks and an Ohlins rear on the bike now and was planning on taking it over to Motorcycles Unlimited to get the suspension set up for me once I get the bike together and the race body on it. I still have about 80% life in them but don't know how long they will last until I get out there.

I was planning on going with the gen and warmers for safety and tire life. I bought a big enough trailer to carry everything that I need outhere but only have the people at the track to guage what I need.

Thanks everybody
