Need a favor

I am racing a supermoto street race tomorrow night and I am not bringing my trailer so I cannot bring my big ass generator. I am hauling my race bike on my MX hauler and want a small genny to toss in the back of my Taho. Does someone have a small lightweight genny I can borrow for a day or 2. I will return it Saturday evening. I am looking for a Honda EU2000. I will come over pick it up and drop it off. I need it before 7 am tomorrow morning. If anyone is not working they can come out and watch the race is in Northern MI. Here are the details.

You don't need any warmers. Do figure 8's before you go out. The tires will be warm.

Why are you so scared to race without warmers? Those supermoto tires last for fucking ever so I know it can't be to save tire life. You can heat cycle those things 20 thousand times and they are still ok. I have a set of Pilot Race tires on the SV right now with 9 races and 3 full track weekends. I ran them last weekend at RA and they are still ok. I didn't run warmers at all. They wiggle a little when you first start to warm them up but seem to heat right up with no issues.

Because they take forever to come to temp. Even on a roadrace track. The bike is so light there fore tires coming up to temp take longer. It took 2.5 laps to get my tires warmed up at BHF last week and it was hot out. If I wait that long before going 100% the race will be halfway over. These are not 160 DOT tires they are slicks for sumo racing

I know what they are. I have riden on them on several occassions. I was blasting around in the parking lot by gus's house on Jack's 250. You need to push the fucker down and stay on the side of the tire to get them hot. Road Racing they may never get warm because you are on top of the tire for too long and you aren't aggressively pushing the thing down in hard turns like on a sumo track.

Grow some balls bitch and race without warmers. LOL!!!!

Gotcha Nick. This is what I will do. I will start my bike up 10 min before the race and ride down the street to the local supermarket. Tell everyone to make room for me to I can ride in circles to warm my tires. Ride in a figure 8 for 5 min to warm them up na ride back to the race. What happens if the old ladies don't move there cars for me when its time for my race. What do I do then???


BTW I am not driving 4 hours and paying $90 bucks for entry fees and gas to get out there to race on cold tires and break anotehr fuckin hip or back. If worse comes to worse I will bring my big genny.

I picked this up for $40 from CL. It's old but it works perfect. Welcome to borrow it. I can give you that paint and I have kitchen cabinets for your garage if you want to check them out.

Give me a call. I have a new, quiet Yamaha 2400 (about 2' x 3' footprint, by 2' high, or so) that I don't need right this moment. No gas in it now and I think the oil's a bit lower than it should be.
