The g310gs does look a lot better without reflectors, but I'm not sure if it's legal to go without in my area. Should probably check first in my case.

Just get stick on reflectors (i.e. stickers) rather than the plastic type, that should make it look a bit better and still provide protection.

Changed my reflectors to white stick on reflectors. See attached before and after shots.

I used fishing line to easily remove the stock reflectors.

I had the stick on reflectors from a Bell Custom 500 helmet (they came with it for the French version, apparently in France you have to attach reflectors to your helmet).

I think you are right about the legal side of reflectors in uk mate.

You can get wheel tape with 310 on it with red white and blue, I know some guys it don't suit to put tape on the wheels.

Seems the GS I got have the reflector placed differently, on the fork plastic guard. It doesn't bother me at all like this ;-)
