Hi Kris - yes, you can certainly fit the OEM tyres to the tubeless Rally-Raid wheels if you wish.

for info. you can also fit the OEM tyres to the [cheaper] tube-type version of the wheels too, you would just have to also fit tubes inside them too of course.

No, not a specific Rally-Raid product, that is not really something they have the technology to develop in-house.

Personally speaking, I have had good results from using a Power Commander V model on my Yamaha XT660Z rally bike in the past - it produced good gains everywhere, and approximately +4-5bhp at the top end...

However, that was in combination with an open air-box lid, DNA foam air-filter and a short single silencer race (non cat) exhaust - and fundamentally, while I did gain a significant power increase of around 10%, the bike would typically use 20% more fuel - and that is the inherent compromise in 'tuning' an engine of course, more power usually means higher fuel consumption, and on a small capacity 'adventure' bike, I'd suggest that is not really a compromise worth making - especially one with a relatively small fuel tank in the first place.

Ultimately I always drag out the old adage I heard on the Ducati Monster forum many years ago - when people ask the best way to get more power out of a 600cc Monster, the reply was always to sell it, and buy the 900cc Monster instead...

As for the G310GS - from personal experience, fitting the better breathing Scorpion exhaust and also a 15T front sprocket makes the bike feel a lot more lively than stock.

Hope that helps!

Jenny x

thank you Jenny. i do not have personally a good experience with the power commander, so I hope something else will come up in the market. 15T sprocket is on my list. by the way, I am impressed with the all the great option RR offers. It is great!
