Of course, there is a constant clash between making performance upgrades and aesthetic changes. Fortunately, some aftermarket parts offer both. Pick from any or all of these three upgrades and you’ll be looking good while getting the most from your ride.

Kuryakyn Hyper Charger Air Cleaner

The air cleaner is an important part of any motorcycle engine because it greatly affects itsperformance and power. The Kuryakyn Hyper chgarger Air Cleaner kicks things up a notch by increased the intake air pressure to the engine. In turn, this creates more horsepower.

Although it is a subtle visual change, it adds a meatier look to your air intake. Additionally, to any fellow riders, it is a clear indication that you care about performance.

Avon Cobra Chrome Motorcycle Tire

For a less subtle aesthetic change, consider the Avon Cobra Chrome Motorcycle Tire. This aftermarket tire features a unique, eye-catching cobra tread pattern. Additionally, the tires add superior grip even in wet conditions. They are a great way to get more control while also adding a unique visual upgrade.

Cobra PowerFlo Air Intake Kit

Another option for maximizing airflow is the Cobra PowerFlo Air Intake Kit. This upgraded air intake improves airflow while adding a unique visual accent to your bike. It is available in several colors, so you can match the body color to select something a little more attention-grabbing.

Get Performance and Style

Adding some aftermarket upgrades to your Yamaha bike can help you get both performance and style. Of course, if you want to stick to genuine Yamaha parts, there are plenty of OEM accessories and replacement parts available. One of the best aspects of a Yamaha bike is the number of options you can choose from.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
