Motorcycle Lighting & Electrical Components

Motorcycle electrical systems are arguably the most hated part of the bike to work on. In some cases, you can’t visually see what the problem is like you would be able to do with other components like a dirty carb or damaged piston ring. But electrical parts are crucial for a running bike. If you persevere and are able to pinpoint the problem, you want to be sure that you are replacing the faulty parts with quality ones to ensure that you won’t have to deal with it in the near future.

For many bikes, the battery is often the culprit. With their relatively short lifespan, they can become too weak to turn the bike over. With replacements ranging from the typical lead-acid all the way to the long lasting and light lithium batteries, you can choose whichever option that best fits your bike and budget. When the battery isn’t to blame, there is a host of other electrical components that can fail. Stators, coils, CDI and wiring can all fail. Fortunately there are direct replacements for just about all of these. 

It’s crucial that your motorcycle lighting is operating at full capacity in order to see and to be seen at night and during the day. You can choose to use direct replacements or you can upgrade. LED headlights and driving lights can make riding at night feel almost like daytime, plus they use less power and last longer. Bright taillights, marker lights and turn signals are also important to gain the visibility that you need on a bike. Light bars are a great way to add even more light in the front of your bike to make night riding a little safer.
