Info ofDifference in Motorcycle Parts

Original Equipment Manufacturer

Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) is a term used to mean a replacement made by the original manufacturer of the component, not by the builder of the motorcycle. For example: your battery was built by a different company than the one that built your motorcycle. So, if you replace your battery from the same company that made the original, you’re buying an OEM part. This is true whether you’re buying a carburetor or shock absorbers. OEM items are usually more expensive. When you take your motorcycle to a dealership, you know you are getting an OEM component.

OEM Standards

When you buy a part from a national retailer, the OEM displayed on the piece may be followed by the phrase “meets OEM standards.” The original maker does not produce these parts. The company making the piece is claiming to have made the product to the original specifications and standards used by the original company. These items usually cost less than the original.

Aftermarket Parts

The original manufacturer does not make these units. Some companies make these items to function the same as the originals, or in some cases, to work better than the original. There are hundreds of companies that make aftermarket items.

Custom Motorcycle Parts

Custom parts are always more expensive. Whichever part you are replacing, a custom part will enhance the look of your bike. Whether it is a set of rims, a custom tank or seat, or even your engine, you will spend more money.
