All about Motorcycle Parts

Motorcycle GPS

When you hop on your motorbike, it’s important that you know where you are headed, and this new gadget can help get you there. There are now multiple GPS devices that are specifically designed to be used by motorcyclists on the road. These gadgets are compact, waterproof, and some even have integrated headset connectivity so you can hear the spoken directions inside your helmet. In this new age of technology where it is rare to find someone using an actual paper map, this might be the most obvious investment to improve your riding experience.

Handlebar Warmers

When it’s cold outside, riding your bike might not seem like the most appealing mode of transportation, but if it happens to be your only option, handlebar warmers can make your ride much more enjoyable. This gadget attaches to your handlebars and the heating wires slide right under the grip so you don’t have to worry about keeping them in place or ruining the aesthetic of your motorcycle. These can be used on any bike with any type of handlebars, but they may not be compatible with foam grips.

Motorcycle Cameras

Have you ever been riding your bike along a beautiful coastline and thought, “I wish I could capture this moment?” Well, now you can. Thanks to advancements in technology, there are now cameras made specifically for motorcycles that can mount just about anywhere as well as get rid of excess noise and vibrations to ensure you have a clear picture when you’re playing it back for your friends. These cameras are user-friendly and virtually indestructible so you won’t have to worry about them getting ruined outside in harsh climates. All you have to do is attach it, turn it on, and capture the stunning view.

Compact Battery Chargers

Even if you buy all of the cool gadgets and motorcycle parts in the world, you can’t put them to use if your motorcycle battery isn’t charged. That’s why keeping a compact battery charger with you at all times can be a great asset. These compact chargers have short cords and small cases so they are easy to store and can give you a full charge without fear of overcharging your battery once it’s full. You should never let a lack of battery charge keep you from a great ride, so make sure you pick up one of these chargers so you can take advantage of all the other motorcycle parts you have.

Take Care Of Motorbike

Motorbike tires

Motorbike tires not only determine how well you handle the motorbike, they also affect fuel consumption of the bike. When the tires are worn out you have a hard time controlling the bike. You also tend to consume more fuel. To be safe and consume less fuel, you should regularly check the tires for wear and tear. If they are badly worn out you should replace them.

Motorbike chain

If your motorbike has a chain you know how important it is. Since it’s always rotating you should regularly lubricate it. According to experts, a chain that isn’t properly lubricated gets easily damaged due to excess heat. The heat damages the separate links making the chain loose.

This can be dangerous as the chain can fall off while you are riding at high speed. To be safe you should regularly lubricate the chain with high-quality lubricants. It’s also wise that you regularly take your motorbike to a mechanic for chain inspection and tightening. The mechanic will also help you know when it’s time to replace the chain.


Many people ignore the horn as they deem it to be a simple part that has no impact. The truth is that the horn is of great impact as can save your life. You should take good care of the horn by regularly using it. When pressing it, avoid doing it for long periods of time. You should also ask the mechanic to inspect the horn when you are at the garage. It’s good to note that its common for the horn to get spoilt from time to time. When it happens you should replace it as soon as possible. This is to ensure that you have it when you need it.


As a motorbike owner, the benefits of motorbike brakes can’t be overemphasized. There is nothing as dangerous as riding a motorbike without brakes. To be safe you should ensure that the brake pads aren’t worn out to dangerous levels. The cool thing is that you can inspect the pads by yourself where you need to look at them and ensure that they are at least 3 mm in width. If they are less than that size have them replaced.

Performance Engine Building

Replace the Camshafts

If fuel is the lifeblood of an engine, the camshaft is the heart. Therefore, giving your machine a stronger will help determine the amount of power your engine produces. The camshaft also affects where within the RPM range the maximum power will be achieved. Replacing the camshafts with higher-quality parts is generally the easiest and least expensive way to increase an engine’s performance, though it can become more costly if you replace other parts and do a little machining along the way.

Increase Compression

Increasing the compression ratio in your engine involves changing the ratio of the maximum piston volume to the minimum compressed volume of the fuel and air mixture in your engine. As a result of the increased compression, the fuel and air burn faster. In turn, this increases both horsepower and torque across the entire RPM range. As a secondary benefit, it also helps your engine burn more cleanly and efficiently. Some methods for increasing compression include surfacing the head, installing a thinner head or base gasket, decking the cylinder or using pistons with a different profile. When raising compression, the goal should be to increase it to the point just before detonation. Keep in mind that you may need to raise the octane of your fuel after increasing compression.

Install Titanium Valves

If your engine came with steel valves, you can increase red line by upgrading to titanium. Not only are titanium valves stronger, but they are also more lightweight. When it comes to increasing performance, reducing weight is always beneficial.

Reduce Friction

Reducing friction within your engine will help your engine achieve its full horsepower potential. To reduce friction, use ceramic bearings and Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coatings. Ceramic bearings are also available for front and rear wheel bearings.

Maintenance For Dirt Bike Winter Season

If your bike has a carburetor, drain the tank, fuel lines, and carburetor bowl. To do this right, keep the gas cap off completely for 24 hours to dry everything out. If you don’t, there will be some leftover fuel. This usually turns tacky and just ends up blocking the jets which, of course, can affect the running efficiency or performance of your motorbike.

Remove old oil. Over time, a running engine’s oil changes from a clean, gold-colored fluid to dirty, black sludge. In just a few months’ time, the contaminants in old oil can corrode into some engine parts and do some serious damage. As such, don’t forget to change the oil and filter plug before storing your ride this winter season to avoid a troublesome situation later on.

Consider running the bike for a few minutes every week. By following this tip, you will prevent fuel from “sleeping,” and if you rev the bike up several times a week, fuel would course through the jets and this will keep the jets clean throughout the winter.

Look after the bike’s tires. If possible, store your bike with the tires off the ground. This is because taking the weight off your wheels is the best way to avoid flat spots or uneven wear. If this is not, possible, fill your tires to the maximum recommended volume, put your ride on its center stand, and rotate the front tire once a week to keep the flat spots away.

Wash, dry, and wax your dirt bike before storing it. In general, the metal on your motorcycle tends to accumulate moisture, which can easily cause rust if your dirt bike is left unattended for a long period of time. Washing, painstakingly drying, and waxing your dirt bike before putting it away for the winter will help prevent corrosion and other damage.
