The Ultimate Guide to Ordering New Dirtbike Parts

As you might be able to tell, we absolutely love riding dirtbikes – especially all throughout Idaho. The high-speeds, freedom, and excitement are hard to not appreciate once you ride one yourself. 

One hobby that many dirtbike enthusiasts share is customizing their bikes with different aftermarket and stock parts to improve performance. Conversely, you may need to replace something just to maintain optimal engine function. 

Either way, if you need to order dirtbike parts, we can help you with that. Our team spends countless hours familiarizing ourselves with parts that cover all performance aspects. 

If you are a local customer and interested in ordering dirtbike parts through us, here are some tips to help expedite the process: 

Understand the “Why” Behind Ordering Your Dirtbike Parts

There are many aftermarket parts that you can use to upgrade your dirtbike. They often offer an enhanced performance quality and sometimes come with other exciting additional features. However, not every part is truly suited for each rider’s needs. Depending on your skill level, the frequency you ride your bike, and how you ride it, different parts will prove better than others. 

As you’re researching dirtbike parts, know why you are searching for them. Are you trying to enhance the aesthetics of your vehicle? Improve engine performance? Maybe you’re looking for better suspension? No matter the cause, you need to align your customization goals with a concrete purpose. Oftentimes, many customers that come to our shop to order a specific aftermarket part will end up purchasing a different one instead because, after speaking with one of our team members, they realize that one will better suit what they are looking for. 

Create a Holistic Budget

Depending on where you are ordering parts from, you should also factor in taxes, shipping costs, and any installation fees if you have someone install them onto your dirtbike for you. Each parts store will have its own pricing structure, so it will help you to inquire about any additional expenses beyond the purchase itself before you begin ordering. 

When you create your budget, you will also be able to identify which products are within your spending limit. This will ensure that you receive the right parts for what you need without having to burn a detrimental hole in your wallet to make it happen. 

Research Parts and Make a Shortlist

Some people are brand loyalists or heavily invested enough in dirtbike customization that they know the exact parts they are looking for. If you are not one of those people, there’s no shame in that, but you should also create a shortlist of parts that you find interesting and are considering. This way, you can weigh the pros and cons of their specifications. If you seek our help, this will also aid your representative in better understanding what kind of products you are looking for so they can better advise you on which ones you should consider over others. 

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions

When you arrive at a motorsports retailer, do not hesitate to ask questions about specific parts. For example, our Parts Department team members spend countless hours researching, installing, and maintaining various motorsports parts. These types of experts can help educate you on the best upgrades and replacement components that fit your exact preferences. 

You should also ask your motorsports representative if certain aftermarket parts will fundamentally alter the way your dirtbike is operated in any way. Having this knowledge on hand can help prevent any safety hazards later on when riding it. 

Save Money by Asking About Used Dirtbike Parts

Many dirtbike parts enthusiasts will buy new pieces and trade in old ones on a regular basis. Some motorsports retailers will offer a range of used selections. 

Ask your representative if they are selling any used parts similar to the ones you are looking for. These often cost less without sacrificing the performance quality you demand.
