					Motorcycle Accessories

Motorcycle accessories are gaining center stage in today's flashy world. So many bike
accessories are available in the market that can help your bike stand out even in the
same crowd. Some of these accessories are optional restricted to its appearance while
some are essential for the smooth functioning of one's bike.


Safety accessories top the list, they are the pre requisites that one should definitely
have on purchasing a bike or may be even before. A good quality helmet is a definite
must for a bike rider, not wearing a helmet can get you sued in some countries even.
Helmets can be a style statement as they are available in different varieties (shape,
color, sizes, and designs). Safety with style should be on one's mind while purchasing
the right helmet.


There are other different bike accessories available in the market as well; however
buying them is not a compulsion. Bike goggles, knee caps, gloves, chaps, fire resistant
riding suits etc are some of the other accessories available. Purchasing some rain wear
can prove to be a smart choice. All these accessories help enhance one's riding
experience.


Motorcycle back-packs are a good idea if you make several short trips on your bike.
There are also many travel gears and lather pouches that can be attached to your bike,
most of them are removable and hence can be used conveniently only when required
while traveling to far off places.


To make the ride on your bike an easy and comfortable one, you should make sure
that YOU are comfortable. It's no use to have the best accessories with discomfort
attached to it. If you often have a passenger on your bike, getting a back rest bar
would prove to be a very wise decision. Long rides can get your legs all cramped up,
for this purpose getting an additional set of foot pegs on the front of the bike helps
keep your legs stretched and comfortable through out the ride.




Decals are commonly used bike accessories to customize the look of one's bike. The
markets are flooded with various types and designs of decals that are sure to make
your bike stand out in accordance to your style. An alternative for decals can be a
custom design painted on your bike. Chrome pieces are also available to replace the
standard ones on your bike with.
It is not very difficult to find motorcycle accessories, you can even request for
catalogues from the motorcycle manufacturers to get a broader idea of the same. The
internet is the best place to find unlimited information, examples, designs, varieties
etc on this topic. Choosing the accessory for your bike may not be a piece of cake,
you must invest only in good quality products that offers style as well as durability,
settling for a cheap gimmick may save you a few bucks but they are useless as they do
not offer any durability and neither are they safe.

Motorcycle Parts

An uncomfortable ride on your bike may be a result of your riding technique bundled
with a combination of other faulty parts of your bike. There are always a few
motorcycle parts which require regular servicing and some occasional adjustments
and replacements. Since all the maintenance aspects of a bike are concentrated on
motorcycles, it is very convenient to notice when a particular part needs replacement,
for instance Motorcycle Tail Lights, chains and sprockets or even the brake pads.


The brake pad one gets is really a subject of one's riding style along with one's
equilibrium and posture. There are two kinds of brake pads, GG and HH, both bearing
different characteristics from the other. HH exhibits more power to stop under a given
force. However it is felt by some riders that HH pads fag out the brake rotors more
promptly since they are somewhat "grabby".


Bikes are lighter weight machines and hence it would be a big mistake to place the
HH bikes on the back of your bike and GG brake pads in the front, a comfortable ride
would mean having these brake pads placed the other way round. It should be
however noted that the new model sports bikes should only use HH brake pads.
Always follow the company manual.


Sprockets and chains have always been in major question, a lot of incorrect
information is filled in the market about it, sometimes even a manufacturer cannot
provide with correct information; hence one should be aware of the same. The most
popular question asked by almost all bike riders is if the X-ring lasts longer than an
O-ring, or rather which one is comparatively better. The answer lies in the hands of
the rider himself. It actually depends on the riding style, the usage of the bike and
weight of the rider. Correct and proper lubrication of chains for every specific weather
condition can ensure a good ride with either of the rings.


Motorcycle parts easily wear out. A stunt maniac who constantly performs different
stunts like a wheelie, burnout etc would have to take extra care of his bike as his brake
pads can tear, the chain and sprockets can get completely damaged if not properly
oiled or if neglected. To enjoy a comfortable ride one has to take timely and proper
care of even the minutest parts in the bike.
