Make your ride your own with modifications

Many motorcycle owners like to personalize their bikes and make them unique; however, you can also make a few simple modifications to help your bike ride smoother and safer.

  • Modifications like frame sliders, engine guards and swing-arm spools all help keep your bike up and away from the ground in case of an accident or a tip-over.
  • New tires will help your bike handle better and prevent any blowouts.
  • Another simple modification is a custom windshield to fit your height. Windshields affect airflow and can slow your bike down if not adjusted properly, so upgrading can make your ride smoother.
  • The most popular modification is a new exhaust system and pipes. A new exhaust system can change the sound quality of your bike and add lots of eye-catching chrome.

Put safety first

Always make sure a modification doesn't compromise the safety of your motorcycle. And, if you don't feel comfortable making the change on your own, hire a professional who can make sure it's done properly.

Keep Foremost in the loop

It's important to remember, not every modification may be covered by your insurance policy or may require extra coverage. Let Foremost know before you make changes to your bike so your coverage can be adjusted if needed.

Get noticed

One of the benefits of customizing your bike is putting it on display for other riders to appreciate. What better place than a bike event? You'll get inspiration from other riders and find new vendors to help you modify your bike even more. Check out some of the most popular events for riders in America.

  1. Daytona Bike Week – Florida
  2. Rolling Thunder – District of Columbia
  3. Americade – Lake George, NY
  4. Laconia – New Hampshire

Modifying your bike is a simple way for you to stand out from the rest of the pack. It’s also a great way to make it safer, smoother and more fun to ride. Plus, you can enjoy showing it off to other riders!
