Gas tank cover too big

Poor design gas tank lacks aerodynamics
Too wide and uncomfortable

Indeed, while speeding up it can be a bit tough to not rely on my arms to keep myself on the seat; this is notorious at about ~120-130km/h but I've learnt to adapt around it just by taking better seat position prior to reaching said speed.

Can you stop spamming this forum with your one-liner complaints? Just create a single thread to discuss. You're not adding anything to the new community by **** posting like this.

He’s a troll. If you don’t feed him, eventually he’ll get bored and go away.

Hi Flabmw,


What type of bikes are you used to?


I don't mind the tank, but I find that it probably could have been a bit narrower where the legs dig in, although that might look a bit different.


How tall are you?

So you should buy a BMW R60/5, that is about the last model BMW made that answers to your desires!

I had a 1973 Yamaha RD350....I remember it fondly but my G310 is a vastly superior bike.

Just saying

Ride it without the plastic cover then!

Just kidding.

(And before you ask: no I'm not riding mine without, the photo was taken when I was exploring where to mount my heated grip switch, was looking if enough room on the black part of the plastic near at the front the forks...)
