front fender

just been watching a walkround video of the GS, it looks like the front mudguard is longer than the one on the R, so if this is correct, instead of fitting a fender extender, why not just fit the one off the GS?

Might be possible but not sure if it would very nice. Remember the GS is supposed to have a taller rim, so while it could fit, there might be a considerable gap between the fender and the tire.

Good point it would look odd with a smaller wheel under it

would be interesting to know if the R1200R fender would fit on the 310. Seems that the R1200R fender in red is longer than the fender in black when you look at the pictures on the BMW website.


The R nineT fender would look awesome if it fit onto the 310, wouldn't provide any more coverage, but would look very cool.

I think that the R nine T fender may be too wide even if the wheels are the same diameter (17")

Probably better off speaking to the parts guy at your dealer to find out what will work since they have all the specs on hand. Easier and quicker to find what will work in that case. Anyone that does try... keep us posted!

Kind of disappointed there has been no one so far that did custom work as yet since the G310R seems like a great platform to me, custom fender is what i'm after.
