Moto-D Pro Series Dual Temp Tire Warmer Review

I purchased the Pro Series Dual Temperature Tire Warmers from Moto-D brand new a little under 1 year ago now, and WOW! They are working out as well as I could have ever imagined. Coming from a top of the line brand (ChickenHawk), I was a bit skeptical to be trying out a new manufacturer's product with no real track record yet. They come with a super cool carrying case to keep them in, and have 3 settings on the warmer; Off, low, and high with the use of a rocker switch. I typically use high for getting the tires up to operating temperature, and low for keeping the tires from heat cycling in between sessions or for rain tires.

Moto-D's claim to fame, in my opinion, would definitely be their unique Carbon Coil Wire technology. I have noticed a noticeably faster heat up time over the traditional wire element that was used in my old ChickenHawk's. In addition, the carbon coil wires are supposed to last for much longer and are more resistant to tears, breaks, and “dead” spots. The exterior is made from a durable Carbon Fiber looking Poly-Nomex material, looks pretty awesome when the sun catches it just right!

Moto-d's product support is also top notch, they will replace the warmers, free of charge, within 2 years if they ever stop working - even if it's your fault because you leave them plugged in accidentally! 

.. And, Yes, we REALLY use them :)

Superbike Rear Brake Reservoir Kit

The superbike rear brake reservoir kit makes for a great sportbike winter mod that adds a serious custom look to your machine. They're priced under $20 and come with everything you'd need for installation except for the brake fluid. Kits include 12 inches of Tygon 2375 Ultra Chemical Resistant Tubing, one stainless steel hose clamp and one breather cap. Many customers even pick up an extra Tygon tube and update the front brake reservoir line to clear as well.

This kit also makes a great stocking stuffer for your motorcyclist!

The K60 is considered a 50/50 dual sport tire which means it is designed for riding half of the time off-road and half of the time on-road. We've seen it being used up to 70% on road with great tread life (in the 6,000-8,000 mile range). We use the K60 rear on our shop BMW F800gs and absolutely love it.

Brembo 19RCS Brake Master Cylinder

The Brembo 19RCS brake master cylinder is back in stock! Brembo has put together a very nice platform for street and track duty motorcycles. The 19RCS brake master cylinder comes with a folding lever, brake light switch (for brake light activation) and, best of all, an adjustable pivot distance allow a rider to select from 19x18(street, for instance) or 19x20 (track, or vice versa). This feature effectively puts 2 master cylinders into one unit.

For most modern sportbikes with an existing radial brake master cylinder the 19RCS brake will be direct bolt-on. I would suggest additional Tygon tubing as the length may need to be adjusted to suit your needs - and, hey, it looks trick! Brembo makes a stand-a-lone reservoir kit for those without a stock radial brake system.

Learn a little more about Brembo and their industry leading brake technology.
