Buying aftermarket motorcycle parts offers great advantages. Not only are they more affordable than OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts in most cases, they often improve on the stock part, whether by providing enhanced performance or increased comfort or awesome good looks. Often, the material these parts are made of are superior to OEM spec. Aftermarket replacement parts that are made from titanium, aluminum or carbon fiber are lighter, sleeker, and sturdier and they look great too.

Here are some of the most popular aftermarket parts categories:
 

Air filter
Over time, you will need to replace your motorcycle’s air filter. By choosing a quality one, you’ll enhance the power of your bike. Some filters feature a greater surface area, and this design element lets more air pass through to give your bike a better throttle reaction and increased horsepower. Brands like K&N or BMC offer high-air-flow, washable filters that can be re-used.


Intake and Fuel 
Motorcycle parts include carburetor kits as well as management systems for fuel injection like a Power Commander. When it becomes time to replace your bike’s carburetor kit, be sure to buy one that creates more air velocity. The fuel (injection) management system is another motorcycle part on your bike that you may need to replace or upgrade. This device lets you manage your bike’s fuel system. It also has an automatic tuning feature that activates your motorcycle’s factory sensors. You can use it for precision tuning and to adjust your bike for different fuel grades. Power Commanders are a great option for this to automatically adjust to an optimized fuel/air ratio, and thereby increasing performance.


Brake Pads
Brake pads is one of those parts that bike owners often overlook, but they’re one of the most important parts. Aftermarket brake pads from premium brands (such as EBC, Galfer, or SBS)  are far superior to stock ones, providing higher friction and a better "brake feel".  They use superior materials too, like ceramic and Kevlar The material combination comes together to provide consistent power and more control. 


Foot Controls

Upgraded foot controls (sometimes rearsets on sportbikes) will help your bike ride more comfortably and be easier to control. In this category, you can get foot pegs, shifter pegs, forward controls, and even floorboards. Aftermarket foot controls are also adjustable, so you can fit them in the best position for your height. This type of part is easy to install and comes in a variety of styles and colors.

 

Motorcycle Trailers 
If you take extended motorcycle trips, then a trailer will travel on two wheels easier. Use one to store your travel/camping gear, riding gear, spare parts, tools, and even food and/or cooking supplies for the trip. Trailers are available in either open and enclosed models. A lightweight aluminum one will keep your fuel economy high. 

Motorcycle Tires 
It goes without saying that tires are one of the most important motorcycle elements. They affect the performance, safety and ride comfort of your bike. Because of this, it’s crucial to choose the right ones, whether you are upgrading to enhance your bike’s performance or replacing a worn out set of tires. Be careful to choose tires specifically designed for your bike model and riding style (street, cruiser, dual-sport and dirt), as tires perform completely differently for each style. 

When ordering replacement tires, you should stick to the sizing determined by the original equipment manufacturer. Motorcycles are assembled according to a particular tire size, so if you make a change, then your bike won’t operate as well as it should. 
 

Motorcycle Helmets 
Helmets are the single most important piece of safety riding gear, so it’s important to get one that fits right. A helmet should be snug around the crown of your head and tight along the cheeks. An ill-fitting helmet will not only be uncomfortable, but it also wouldn’t protect you like it should. In fact, a cheap helmet that fits right will offer more protection than an expensive helmet that doesn’t.

Buying a helmet online could get tricky since you won’t be sure it’s the right fit without trying it on. So it’s best to buy from a store that allows returns. Also, consider selecting a helmet that features adjustable elements like removable cheek pads and liners. Some helmet styles even come with an air pump system that lets you inflate the cheek pads to your preferred comfort level.
