Three Ways to Trick Out Your Bike

Posted on

Whether you’re brand new to motorcycles or you’re a seasoned veteran, at some point you’ll want to deviate from the stock model you purchased and customize your bike. There are so many components to your motorcycle that you may not know where to begin. In today’s post, we’ll provide you with four customization ideas that will help you take your bike from ordinary to extraordinary. If you’re interested in customizing your bike, head over to RC Components’ online store when you’ve finished reading this post! We carry an unparalleled selection of custom motorcycle exhaust pipescustom motorcycle wheels, and so much more!

Rims

Wire-spoked rims were the only kind of rims that were available through the 1950’s and most of the 1960’s, but cast-aluminum rims are the most commonly seen rims on the market today. Spoked rims are known for their durability, and it’s not hard to find aesthetically pleasing custom spoked rims that will look great with a custom paint job. If you’re looking for custom motorcycle rims that will really set your bike apart from the crowd, something like our Savage Chrome Wheel might be what you’re looking for. Featuring a tribal design in a flashy chrome paint, your bike is sure to catch the attention of everyone who sees it.

Custom Exhaust Pipe

Outfitting your bike with a custom exhaust pipe is a great way to increase your bike’s aesthetic appeal while increasing its functionality. While standard exhaust pipes are typically high-quality and reliable, you’ll be surprised at the difference a custom exhaust pipe makes during your ride. Our RCX Power Max Header, for example, creates low-end torque and balances the exhaust that comes from each cylinder, resulting in an noticeable difference in horsepower. 

Once you’ve picked out the custom exhaust pipe you’d like to add to your bike, you can customize it even further! You can choose different heat shield covers and whether you’d like screws to be visible or not. If you have any questions about which custom exhaust pipe is right for your bike, all you have to do is contact a member of our friendly staff!

Seat

Given that it’s where you will spend all of your time when you’re riding the bike, the seat is one of your motorcycle’s most important components. If you find that your back is becoming sore after long rides, you may want to find a seat that supports your back while you ride. You’ll be surprised at the number of options you have to choose from in terms of material, and you may want to consider the weather in your area before you buy a new seat. Leather will become hot in the summer, but fabric seats will quickly absorb water if you live in a humid environment.

We hope that this post has inspired you to take the next steps toward your dream bike. If you’re still looking for the perfect addition to your bike, why not browse our online store for ideas? We’ve got a great selection of Harley Davidson exhaust pipescustom motorcycle rims, and everything else you need to take your bike to the next level!
