Tire Warmer/Generator Recommendations Wanted

I'm slowly evolving (old but still capable of evolving)on trackdays. I've been running on Pirelli SP2s unwarmed but don't ride on the street other than in winter around the community to avoid storage issues. I'm slowly waking up to the fact that I need tire warmers and the means to run them because I'm tired of cold tearing and short life not to mention missing out on better performance. I've been happy with these tires but mainly because I don't know any better. I'm gathering Chickenhawks or Woodcraft is the way to go but you tell me. What's a good generator for these; I believe it has to be at least a thousand watts? Yes, I have the stands. So two more things I gotta deal with on trackday setup and teardown, dammit.

I've only used Woodcraft, but I love em. I like that the way they're designed, they turn off when you remove them from the tires.

Woodcraft tire warmers, you don't need the digital ones, just the dual-temp are fine. And a Honda EU2000i generator will serve you well for a lifetime and is SUPER quiet and very fuel efficient. And if you ever decide to sell it, you can get nearly what you paid for it.

I use Moto-D warmers, I have two sets (dual temp and digitals) of them and they are fantastic....they replaced my Chicken Hawks which I keep as backups. The Moto-D ones are MUCH better and they have held up fantastic so far, their support is awesome too.

Regarding a generator look at Lifan, I went with the 5600 watt inverter generator but they make several smaller options to compete with the honda and yamaha ones. Here is a hint, they use the same parts as Honda :-D I got the 5600 watt inverter generator on amazon /w free prime shipping for about $1600. They also make 2000,300,etc..

I have this one, and have put about 150-200 hours through it by now at least, GREAT generator would buy it again:

Speaking of Woodcraft...a brand new set of Woodcraft warmers just popped up in the Classified section.

I use single temp MotoD with a champion 2k watt inverter generator. You can get BOTH for less than the price of the Honda Generator. The Champion generator is every bit as quiet as the honda.

Honda Eu generator hands down. Whatever brand you decide on make sure it's a super quite one like the Hondas.
