Since your inside Europe, I really like my racefoxx tire warmers. Dual temp, good price, they warm up very quick, and you see most people in the paddock in Europe using them.

Thanks! I was eyeing those! Those are Capits right but branded Ducati! I don't seem to find enough tech details on them, like max temp, coil number/shape etc

As I am a quite new member, it seems I am not allowed to post a link

You can google on "Capit Suprema Spina", as it are the same warmers. 85C, no thermostate
Watch out for size, as I heard a 200-one will just fit a 200-55 tyre (like s1000rr). So look specifically for Ducati V4's!

I have MotoD, they get the job done, but rear tire is too big for the warmer. If I were to do it again, I would have gotten one that fits better 60 profile tire without massive stretching you need to do.

A part from quality of manufacture , to many people miss the point of the purpose of tire warmers. You heat the tire (rim too if you can) to the temp that you can achieve on track that day. I'm in C so bear with me, if you can guess that your tires are going to be off track at 55 degrees that is the T you need to set your manufacturers pressure. If you come off track at 90 degrees that is the T to set your presssure at .
Example is ..... you turn on your pre set tire warmer and it goes to 90 you set your Pirelli rear to 28 psi , you go out on track and it is cold and you have 50 degrees on your tire the pressure is going to be way under 28 psi and have cold tear.
Solution is.... 1st session, set (from experience) where you think the day is going to heat your tires to , and set your warmers to , (in this scenario 50 degrees) then set to manufacture recommended psi. Suggest to then dial warmers up another 20 degrees to allow for garage to track and a couple of slower laps to start .
You are going to struggle to do this with warmers that locked into a pre set T .

You make a fair point as the temperature impacts tire pressure but I think it is also fair to aim at the optimal operating temperature of the tire & it's corresponding pressure. I have no experience with tire warmers but a 90 to 50 C drop seems a lot. What would the track temp usually be and how soft you have to ride the bike in order to obtain only 50C in tire?

I'm asking because I have a feeling it would have to be damn cold out there to create such a big impact. According to my calculations in your scenario the PSI would drop from 28 to 21ish.

Also, if you happen to track your bike in such cold weather, wouldn't it be more appropriate to do a couple of laps to slowly warm up the tires and then do a couple of 90% ones and then go back and read the tire temp with a temp gun?
