Workshop Wednesday

The first BMW G310GS customer bike has arrived for a Level 2 adventure kit to be fitted before travelling off to Spain for a few weeks.
Most of the production parts are filtering through to stock, and some will be available to order this weekend, after extensive testing on the Australian APC Rally last week.
The Rear Rack Plate has been designed to accept Giant Loop Klamath tail pack, and also 5 litre Rotopax, for extra fuel range.

WEDNESDAY WORKSHOP:
A large batch of 8" billet aluminium being prepared for BMW G310GS rear hubs today. The front hubs are already done, ready for anodising.
Our heavy-duty CMZ TA15-Y lathe, with driven tooling so it can mill, drill and tap threads as well as turn, is perfect for this type of high-accuracy, large diameter work.
These 25 sets of hubs will be used in both tubeless and tubed rim versions, with heavy-duty stainless steel spokes, perfect for off-road adventure riding.

Thanks to some innovative input from our tooling supplier we are increasing production output of billet hubs on the CMZ TA15-Y CNC lathe, we now produce both front & rear hubs for the Honda CB500X, CRF1000L Africa Twin & BMW G310GS in aircraft-grade aluminium 200mm & 150mm diameter billets, and the spoke holes on the front hubs can even be drilled on the lathe using the CMZ's radial tooling, which saves time and increases accuracy.

Nice looking stuff! I really like the Giant Loop Klamath tail pack. Can you tell me more about it, such as size, what it's constructed of, availability and cost? Believe I would like one. Thanks.

Hi, all details of the GZl Klamath tail pack are below on the link, it is our bag of choice and we design our rear racks primarily to fit them

you might want to re-think that product code, RRP is short for recommended retail price, combined with the 720 somebody could get the wrong impression that it's expensive

We have no plans for making fuel tanks for the GS310, we tend to carry a 4 litre Rotopax on the rear rack or side racks for the few times we would need it.
