Motorcycle Parts

Solomoto is an online retailer of aftermarket motorcycle parts and accessories. Aftermarket parts are parts made by a third party completely separate from the bike manufacturers and brand.

So why aftermarket parts? Well, for one, motorcycle parts do wear down and need to be replaced every so often. Aftermarkets parts are often more affordable than OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts.

And secondly, using aftermarket parts is how you can upgrade your bike! While stock motorcycles are perfectly functional, the bike manufacturers still must cut costs where they can in order to produce their bikes at a reasonable price. This means that the bikes you usually buy straight from the shop are "good enough" for "average" riders for "normal" riding conditions. 

But most people are not "average" and will not be just riding in "normal" conditions. This is when aftermarket parts come into play. The purpose of an aftermarket part, be it an exhaust or a windscreen, is to improve upon the stock one*, leading to either better performance, more comfort, and/or enhanced control of the bike.

For example, an aftermarket exhaust will improve the airflow in the engine, therefore letting the fuel burn more efficiently and increasing the bike's power. And an aftermarket windscreen will protect against wind blast and weather, therefore making for a more comfortable riding experience.

We carry a huge selection of parts for all segments in our store, including sport, dualsport, adventure, touring, and cruisers. We have a comprehensive selection of parts, everything from exhausts, power commanders, suspensions, windscreens, brake pads, clutch levers, frame sliders, to fender elimination kits.

(*Please note that there are tons of terrible aftermarket parts too, so do your research carefully and only buy from a trusted dealer. We fully vet the brands we work with and only carry the best of the best!)

We carry aftermarket parts for most major motorcycle manufacturers, including: 


Popular Japanese Motorcycle Brands


The motorcycle division of Yamaha was founded in 1955. Its first product, the 125cc two-cycle, single cylinder YA-1, went on to win at the Mount Fuji Ascent and the All Japan Autobike Endurance Road in the same year. In 1963, Yamaha had its first ever international win at the Belgium GP. Ever since then, Yamaha bikes have been a fixture on racetracks around the world, with many world championship wins to their name. 


Since 1959, Honda has been the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer. In many ways, Honda popularized motorcycles and brought them into the mainstream. When Honda broke out into the U.S. market in the 1960’s, it advertised their bikes with the slogan “You meet the nicest people on a Honda.” This smart marketing move suggested that Honda bikes were for the everyman, instead of the rebel stereotype that riders had at the time. This catapulted Honda and its sales to superstar status. Today, Honda continues to deliver the friendly, easy to ride bikes they've been offering the motorcycle riding public for decades.


Kawasaki started out in the aerospace industry, and so, their first motorcycle engine was designed based on technical know-how from the production of aircraft engines. As such, Kawasaki quickly built a reputation for producing some of the most powerful bike engines. The 650W1, released in 1966, was the largest bike made in Japan at the time, and when it gained popularity in the US market, Kawasaki was officially recognized as a big bike manufacturer.


Founded in 1909, Suzuki has one crazy history: from a successful weaving loom business to a failed attempt at car manufacturing to finally success in the motorcycle industry. When Suzuki came out with their first cyclemotor (a bicycle fitted with a motor) in 1952, the idea was not exactly unique and Honda already dominated Japan’s commuting market. But the high quality of Suzuki’s cyclemotor got the public’s attention, and by 1954 Suzuki was a well-recognized name.


Popular European Motorcycle Brands


BMW Motorcycle Parts

All BMW motorcycles are produced in Berlin. Made with that precise German engineering, BMW bikes are known to be beautifully constructed and designed masterpieces that deliver what the riders are looking for. You definitely get what you pay for with this brand. The BMW lineup includes their bestselling adventure bikes like the R1200GS, and touring bikes like the R1200RT and S1000RR.



Ducati started out in 1926 making radio components and with that great success, started trying their hand at motorcycle production after WWII with a little engine to be mounted on standard bicycles. Soon enough, this little engine – named the Cucciolo – morphed into a little motorcycle, and Ducati sealed its reputation in the mechanical industry. By the mid-60’s Ducati further sealed its place in motorcycle history with the Mach 1, the fastest 250cc road bike ever at the time. Today, Ducati is easily recognized by their trademark Desmodomic valve, the Trellis frame, and the L-Twin engine. Ducati bikes represent their Italian heritage: they’re beautiful and seductive, exuding a timeless quality and refined skill. 


This British company has a long, long history all the way from 1884, starting from when it produced bicycles. In 1902, it produced its first motorcycle, which was essentially a bicycle fitted with a Belgian Minerva engine. But by 1905, it produced its first entirely in-house designed motorcycle, and by the mid 20’s, Triumph had become one of Britain largest car & motorcycle makers. Today, Triumph bikes retain their classic look with their signature Inline Triple and Parallel Twin engine configurations, but thanks to modern engineering, are reliable and efficient. 



In the off-road racing world, there is perhaps no other bike as easily recognizable as the little orange KTM machines. KTM's history goes back to 1934 when it was a vehicle repair shop. By 1953, the little shop has blossomed into a motorcycle production house with the launch of their first bike, the R100, which then went on to secure a title in the 1945 Austrian 125 national championship. Since then, KTM bikes have continued to dominate the motorsports tracks with more than 130 world championship titles. KTM is mainly known for their 2-stroke and 4-stroke off-road motorcycles, but recently has expanded into the street market and has done really well with iconic bikes such as the Duke series.

Popular American Motorcycle Brands

Harley Davidson

Nothing says “classic American” like a Harley. Founded in 1903 in a shed by childhood friends, the first prototype featuring a larger engine and loop-frame design paved the way to the iconic bikes that we know today. By 1920, it had become the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world. Harley-Davidson is a true American icon, managing to survive through two World Wars and the Great Depression. Harleys are known for their heavyweight traditional cruiser motorcycles with 45-degrees air-cooled V-Twin engines, but has expanded to also offer a street option. 


Indian was founded in 1897 as a bicycle production company originally, and sold the first motorized bike in 1901. In its first racing debut a year later, an Indian bike won, which was the start of a series of racing wins, including placing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the Isle of Man TT in 1911. Indian then went on to become the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world in the 1910’s. However by 1953, the company has gone bankrupt and ceased production of all models. Only recently, when Polaris Industries purchased Indian Motorcycles in 2011, did they manage to successfully revive the name and produce new models. This new generation of bikes keep true to Indian’s traditional styling, while equipped with modern performance technology. 


Victory is a relative newcomer to the American motorcycle scene, having only been founded in 1998. It’s created by the parent company, Polaris, out of a passion to revolutionize the classic American V-Twin, with more power and performance. Since its birth, Victory has received numerous awards and accolades.
