I always see deals on Tyresox at www.racemotorcycles.com
Don't know if they are any good, I'm also curious about warmers.

Best tire warmers are Chicken Hawks. To save money surf the net.

Chickenhawks all the way.

Check the Road Racing World archive - there was a comparo about a year or so ago that evaluated the effectiveness of different brands of warmers on different brands of tires.

None, just rub your hands together then place them on the tire, rotate 90 degrees, and repeat until the entire surface is up to temp. Works for me.

Chicken hawks here also! Best customer service also/ Mine where made in 2001 and did not heat up the tire a warm as they use to so I called them and asked them if they can help me out. They told me to send them in so the thermostat can be replaced and the turn around time would be 1 day with only a $30 charge. Not bad for warmers that are 4 years old.

Graves are decent but you're not really buying a warmer as much as your buying a name. See if KBOlson can locate the write from last years Road Racing World.

I read that article, but I know I'll never find it. I throw them away after six months.
