Owning a motorcycle is an experience that cannot be replicated by anything else. Apart from its freedom and excitement, a motorcycle also reflects its owner's personality. But its performance sets a great bike apart from an average one.
And if you're among those looking to enhance your motorcycle's performance, rest assured, you've come to the right place.
Here are some expert suggestions for top-performance mods to elevate your motorcycle's experience.
An exhaust system is one of the first mods serious motorcycle enthusiasts consider when they want to improve their bike's performance. An aftermarket exhaust system can increase horsepower and torque while significantly boosting your motorcycle's sound.
It’s an ideal starting point as it is relatively easy to install and provides an immediately noticeable difference in your motorcycle's power.
If you're regularly riding your motorcycle on the road or track, upgrading the suspension is a great performance mod that can enhance your ride. Suspension upgrades alter how the suspension operates and make it more responsive to your riding.
A suspension upgrade improves handling and grip and boosts overall safety. Investing in quality suspension components that suit your riding style can drastically improve your bike's performance.
Replacing your motorcycle's air filter with a high-performance variant can improve acceleration and reduce fuel consumption. Upgraded air filters have a higher flow rate than the stock variant, enabling more air to enter the engine in a shorter time.
This results in better combustion and a significant increase in horsepower. The filter's premium materials and construction offer a longer lifespan, making it a cost-effective and functional performance mod.
A Power Commander is a device that can improve your bike's performance. The device alters the fuel-air mixture going into the engine, improvising horsepower, fuel economy and acceleration. Other methods involve software from company’s such as Woolich, Brentune, Rexter to mention a few where a lap top is connected to your motorcycles ECU and a custom tune is derived on a Dynomometer by a qualified technician for best results of a map tune derived on another motorcycle of the same make and model is transplanted into your ECU.
It takes less than half an hour to be installed, and with a slight modification, every rider can optimise their bike's potential. For instance, a rider may optimise fuel mapping for maximum acceleration or fuel economy, depending on their preferences.
Swapping heavy parts for lighter ones, such as replacing your stock wheels with lightweight carbon fibre wheels, our better still replacing the heavy OEM exhaust and catalytic converter with a light weight titanium exhaust could change your motorcycle's performance. This reduces the bike's overall weight, ensuring improved handling, acceleration and braking.
Using lightweight components also reduces overall unsprung mass, which in turn helps to improve suspension and road handling. Investing in lightweight parts may be a more expensive modification, but it can remarkably improve your motorcycle's performance.
Every motorcyclist wants to get the best out of their bike, and these performance mods will undoubtedly do that. Whether you're looking for better acceleration, improved speed or handling capabilities, integrating these components into your motorcycle could notably improve your experience.
