We all know that not every modification to a vehicle is beneficial or worthwhile. There are plenty of ghastly modifications out there to cars, trucks and motorcycles. We’ve even blasted all the terrible ones before. And when it comes to motorcycles, modifications can be especially tricky. Maybe it is because of the size of motorcycles or the fact that the rider is hanging out in space while driving, but motorcycle modifications can go wrong pretty quickly and with terrible results. That said, the right modifications can work wonders on a bike. Here are 10 decent motorcycle modifications worth considering.
10. Upgraded Windshield
If there is one part of a motorcycle that is neglected, it is the windshield. Most people tend to think of the visor on the motorcycle helmet as the windshield. No matter what, the motorcycle rider’s head is going to be above the bike’s windshield. For this reason, most motorcycle manufacturers give scant attention to the windshield, preferring to slap on any old thing that will help get the bike sold. And windshields vary greatly – from tiny screens on sport bikes to huge ones on big touring motorcycles. In reality, windshields on motorcycles matter as they direct air flow around the bike and can result in drag if not aligned and installed properly. For these reasons, as well as aesthetics, you’ll want to change the stock windshield out for something more suitable. Keep in mind that a tinted windshield provides a more custom look.
