The 5 cheapest ways to improve your Suzuki motorcycle

For die-hard Suzuki bike lovers, the only thing better than a Suzuki motorcycle is an upgraded Suzuki motorcycle. If you have a big budget to work with, there is no end of improvements you can rack up for your motorbike. For everyone else, here are the five cheapest ways to improve your Suzuki motorcycle with the help of Suzuki aftermarket motorcycle parts.

1. CONSULT A MECHANIC

Before splurging on non-essentials, get your motorcycle properly inspected by a professional. The last thing you want is to find out you need to replace the battery or brakes after spending a few hundred on cosmetic fixes.

2. INSTALL BODY KIT

If your Suzuki bike is a lower-end model, an easy way to make it look more expensive than it really is, is to install a body kit. The UFO body kit is a particular favorite. If this is outside your price range, consider other additions like the following.

  • UFO side panels
  • UFO fork guars
  • Rear or front fenders

3. ADD A SEAT COVER

Because of direct exposure, and through continued use, seats are often the first place on a motorbike to start showing wear and tear. Consider adding a new seat cover with UV protection and double stitching. UV protection extends its lifespan, while double stitching provides additional strength.

4. CHANGE YOUR GRIPS

Depending on the model of Suzuki bike you own, purchasing new grips kills two birds with one stone. You get to improve both the appearance and feel of your motorcycle. When choosing bike grips, try not to get carried away with style alone. Always ensure they fit the model of your bike.

5. UPGRADE YOUR WHEELS

Motorcycle wheels have as many, if not more, variations than a car. And, it has the same potential to completely transform the look of your ride. Just make sure you choose rims that matches the style you’re going for.

There are plenty of cheap projects to tackle when upgrading your motorcycle. If you combine safety and common sense with a good sense of style, you can transform your bike with just a few hundred dollars. Start working on your bike mod project, today!
