Pocket bikes are miniature racing motor cycles which have the details and proportion of a regular world class motor bike but are one-fourth its size. Good maintenance is important for the smooth running of your bike. Therefore, good quality pocket bike parts, which go into good maintenance, are vital for your bike.
These pocket bikes consist of many parts, all of which are offered under different categories and serial numbers. Many of these parts are exchangeable. The most important parts of a pocket bike are tires, wheels, axles, gas tanks, chains, engines, pistons, carburetor, throttle units, brake parts and cylinders. High velocity chrome stack and high performance air filters are also essential to increase the power of your pocket bike
Each of these parts has an important role in the proper functioning of your bike. The quality of these parts, both original and replaced, will decide how long your bike performs at its peak efficiency. It is recommended that you first check out the availability of bike parts before you decide on the model to buy.
The parts you buy need not be from original equipment manufacturers. Such parts, called stock parts in the trade, may not be necessary if there are good generic equivalents available. You will find that these generic parts cost much less and work as well. In fact, with a little modification you may find these parts working even better.
These generic parts are available at many bike parts shops and on the Internet. If you cannot get a part from these sources, search for Internet auction sites, which sell pocket bikes and their parts. You can also ask for mini bike parts at message boards or forums. Another member may direct you to a seller or even have the part with him.
Ingenious use of bike parts
The uses of bike parts are not restricted to maintenance. They can be creatively used to give your bike a personalized custom appearance. These parts can also be used to turn an inexpensive branded or unbranded bike into an attractive, high performance custom bike
You will find many bike parts shop selling lots of accessories like chrome racing pipes, mufflers, decals, decabs, chain holders, tachs and meters besides mini bike parts. These parts and accessories offer you an opportunity to innovate and give your bike a customized look. Some extra features that you can add on to your bike are high powered gas engines, front and rear disc brakes, racing tires, light weight aluminum alloy cast frames and swing arms.
It can also happen that you have shopped unwisely and are left holding a low quality pocket bike. Do not despair, as these parts and accessories can convert that bike into a power racer, which could be the envy of others. All that is needed are the right parts, the right tools and a little ingenuity.
