4 Motorcycle Modifications You Didn’t Know You Needed

4 Motorcycle Modifications You Didn’t Know You Needed

We all want to believe our first motorcycle is perfect when we buy it—keep all the stock parts! However, you can upgrade your bike in many ways, and we aren’t talking about super expensive engine enhancements. Read on to learn four motorcycle modifications you didn’t know you needed.

Engine Guards

You may have heard of engine guards referred to as “crash bars,” and they help prevent damage from crashes. When your bike tips over, you want crash bars to take the brunt of the impact, not your motor. The motor is an expensive piece of tech that’s easy to knock out of whack.

Crash bars offer a bit of protection to your engine and your legs. If your bike tips while riding, crash bars will allow you to slip free and avoid getting pinned beneath the bike.

Custom Windscreen

Windscreens don’t protect from just wind (at least, they don’t have to). Many stock screens are small and cheap, failing to provide the protection you need. They may not be able to offer much more than wind protection, but custom ones can keep your face free of rain, bugs, and rocks kicked up by cars ahead of you.

New Mirrors

Like stock windscreens, stock mirrors are too small to make an impact. Consider upgrading your mirrors for an instant safety boost on the road.

LED Headlights

LED headlights are the way of the future. This simple modification can increase your safety exponentially because visibility is key in low-light situations.

You probably think that we’re talking about what youcan see. While that’s an important factor, LED headlights also make it easier for other drivers to see you on the road, protecting you from many accidents. There are a ton of advantages to LED motorcycle headlight kits, so consider picking one up for yourself.

Now that you know about these four motorcycle modifications you didn’t know you needed, you can make a few upgrades to increase the safety and comfort of your rides—you won’t regret it.
