Is there a difference between just aftermarket parts and motorcycle performance parts?

Sometimes motorcycle performance parts and aftermarket parts are the same part and sometimes they are greatly different. For example you can buy a replacement mirror or chain, sprocket or even a rim that is not made by the manufacturer but this will not improve the performance aspect of your ride. Now usually things like exhaust systems, or a new computer with some remapping will increase power as well as fall in to the aftermarket and performance category.Performance Exhaust Systems For Motorcycles

Why is that you might wonder?
Well almost all production bikes for the street have restrictions built in to them by the maker. This is not their choice but it is something they have to do to adhere to government regulations on emissions, noise as well as performance. Now most of the time when you replace the motorcycle exhaust it is going to be with a performance enhancing system. The same thing usually goes for a new ECU or a different air box to increase the flow. Filters are probably one of those that can go either way. You can go with an aftermarket filter that is an OEM spec or a performance filter that will increase the airflow and therefore give the bike more power if it is properly tuned to handle the extra air.

What increases a motorcycles performance?
Motorcycle performance can be increased easily by getting a race exhaust and a better air box or filter combined with a re mapping of the fuel injection systems ECU, Of course you can get in to rebuilding the motor and putting a more aggressive cam in or boring out the cylinders but these enhancements are usually only made by people that are really serious about hitting the track or the drag strip. Some street racers will also go that extra mile.

Just bolt on Power with NOS:
NOS is another option some riders will go with. It’s an easy way to get extra power fast but it can be tough on the motor unless it’s set up properly. You will find these systems on guys that are serious street racers or the drag strip. Turbo’ s on a bike is another option, however it is probably the least common of all.

So when it comes to motorcycle performance parts versus just OEM or aftermarket go with the performance and get the most out of your ride. Unless of course there is a huge difference in price and you don't care about the extra power there is absolutely nothing wrong with leaving your bike stock and all OEM like the day you got it.
