How to Increase the Torque at the Rear Wheel of a Motorcycle in All Gears


There are many different ways to increase the torque of a motorcycle, though they all involve making modifications to the bike. The type of performance modification depends on your budget, time, and motorcycle maintenance skills. When you want to up the torque at the rear wheel of your bike, refer to your motorcycle's owners manual to ensure you follow recommended maintenance procedures.

Things You'll Need

  • Aftermarket sprockets
  • Motorcycle chain
  • Water
  • Coolant
  • Synthetic oil
  • Change the front and rear sprockets to change the final drive ratio. A smaller front or larger rear sprocket will develop more acceleration but less top speed for a given RPM. Replace the chain to ensure proper chain and sprocket break in.

  • Increase the water-to-coolant ratio. Drain the coolant and refill using a 60% water and 40% coolant mixture. Water has better cooling properties than coolant, so the bike will run cooler and more efficiently.

  • Replace conventional oil with fully synthetic oil. Synthetic oil will reduce friction and improve engine performance.
