Motorcycle Tech

Since the beginning of when Hot Bike was formed in 1971 and the first custom motorcycle magazine revolving around performance launched the magazine to the masses back in the days, we’ve continued with that tradition of always taking pride in sharing the wealth of centuries-combined motorcycle tech knowledge of how to wrench on your ride.

Be it simple oil-change swaps on Harley-Davidson motorcycles, to complete engine builds made for the drag strip. You’ll find ground-up custom motorcycle build articles from stock bike into full-blown custom after all is said and done. We’re a caring sort and we like to share our findings of how we get peak performance out of the components available to everyone. We’ll also look for the right combinations of components that we feel make sense. From a 2-into-1 exhaust upgrade, to picking the right fuel tuner to just the right amount of air intake. We’ll then dive into cam swaps and hop-up kits. If you’re looking for better braking components or more functional suspension internals we have you covered with step-by-step installation articles there too. Want to install a new set of wheels? We got you covered there too.

We also like to examine how things work. We’ll take the deeper dives into engine theory to understand how things work the way they do and why it makes sense for you. From camshaft lift to oiling system basics for your Twin Cam engine. There is a lot to learn when diving deep into how components work and we enjoy the science behind the motorcycle tech.
