Essential Dirt Bike Upgrades

One of the best days for any biker is when they buy their dream dirt bike. The luster of a new bike and its enhanced performance are always fascinating. But when you hit the trails and do more hours of riding, it will undoubtedly lose its shine, have some part scratched, bent or even broken. When your bike does not look as good as it used to be when new, it is imperative to do something that will make you fall in love with your dirt bike again.

Here are some dirt bike parts, if upgraded or changed, that will see you cherish your dirt bike again.

Get Some Graphics

Most bikers love having a bike with decent graphics. You can have the graphics on your new bike, but you should be ready to replace them often, considering that they tend to wear only after a few rips on the tracks. There are plenty of dirt bike graphics and swapping graphics is more or less like doing a makeover that leaves your bike’s skins a bit flashier.

Controls

If you have been riding your dirt bike for a while, the chances are that the controls will take a beating. For a worthwhile riding experience, you need to change the controls whenever you feel that they are not as effective as they were when they were still in pristine condition. On the other hand, if the handles leave you experiencing some arm pumps, try swapping the grips with a dual compound material.

Gear System

Tweaking your gear system can see you improve or reduce the performance of your dirt bike. Thus, it is imperative to learn more about gear ratios and their effects on their performance on the bike. Changing the gearing system is all about gearing up or down, and this is often informed by the nature of the track you will be competing on.

Exhaust Systems

Riders love the sound of their dirt bike. As a result, most of them go out of their way to improve their exhaust system. If your bike has the stock system it had when it was still new, you should consider upgrading your exhaust to give your bike a unique sound and enhanced performance.
