Tire Warmers and Generators

Hi,
I am in the market for a generator and am wondering can you run a set of tire warmers on a honda EU 1000?

Thanks for your time. Oh and I tried a search and came up with nothing.

Re: Tire Warmers and Generators

from reading the specs on the HONDA EU 1000, it will be plenty for those warmers

Dear Lord, Watch over me and my family of motorcycles as we go into the streets. Protect us from the four wheeled demons. Make us seen so we will not have our life taken by someone not paying attention. Keep us from harm. Let it be known, "we are coming". Watch over us as we wheelie down the streets and highways. Forgive us for the laws that we break for it is only out of fun that we do so and not to harm anyone.

Dear Lord, Please protect the police and highway patrol in their pursuit to uphold the law. Give me the courage to accept the penalties for my own actions. Watch over the injured or sick and help them to a speedy recovery. We know that we are unworthy of all the gifts that you give us, but we pray these things in your name.

I have used it for a year now and love it. Its very quiet plus you can run other things while warming your tires like a fan or coffee machine.

Re: Tire Warmers and Generators

You might need the EU2000i generator since warmers usually use 1200 watts. I got mine for $869/shipped from Big Sky Power in Montana.

For warmers, check the WERA classifieds; thats where I got my Pro Lines from.

BTW, how ya been? I remember you from a Willow trackday back in 06. You had a serious crash but looks like you got some new paint!

You don't want to overwork your warmers it may cause them to burn out. You want more then enough juice not too little 1000 max isn't going to cut it. You want the Honda 2000 unit because warmers use 1200 watts.

Totally agree with this but also remember the Honda 2000 has an output rating of 1600 and a max (short time frame) of 2000 watts. For the same or less money the Yamaha 2400 has an output rating of 2000 with a max output 2400 and a 10 minute surge of up to 3000watts. I looked at both and the Yamaha won out plus its only 58dbs. I get a lot of people asking me about mine. I think I paid 1075.00 to my door.

Re: Tire Warmers and Generators

I have bakers covered, but we need a generator to keep 2 bikes going at the same time.

I was thinking of getting a bigger "louder" generator. Does anyone use a non suitcase type generator that can comment?

Honda units that can sustain 2 bikes cost waaay too much! I don't think I can budget one of them for 2008 season.
