Hi Tickster - have you registered your interest with Rally-Raid directly? - if so I'm sure they will let you know when they are likely to be available.

Similarly, this is only one of a number of forums that Rally-Raid support and engage with - there is a lot more activity on the ADVrider forum for example.

I know there are 5 or 6 engine guards about to go on the web-shop - although I imagine they are pretty much all spoken for. There are also 25 more being manufactured at the moment, that once they've been powder-coated, will also be added to the web-shop inventory.

At the end of the day Rally-Raid are a small independently owned manufacturing company. They are not stamping these things out by robot in a huge factory somewhere.

After feedback from pre-production/real-world testing, John took the decision to revise the design slightly, which meant new jigs had to be made, and this is in an effort to manufacture the best possible engine guard for the end user.

Your patience is appreciated, and in turn ought to be rewarded with an excellent product that has been thoroughly tested prior to be offered for sale.

Yes I emailed Liz and she put me on the notification list a few weeks ago saying there were close to being ready.
Not to worry, I get the production issue(s), but you know I am just anxious to put a real bash plate on that appears
to be made to serve its purpose properly instead of the flimsy OEM version.
Cheers

The Engine Guards have been put back 2 weeks, as we had a problem where 2 customer's where not happy with the fit of their Spanners that we make, where the hexagon fits in the front wheel spindle. But when we checked, the stock we had fitted perfectly into our G310GS, which was the first in the UK late last year. When I checked the 7 bikes at the local dealer with our spanner, only 2 fitted perfectly, 2 others were very slack and 3 did not go in at all !!!
Obviously, quality control on the spindles is not a high priority, so we have had to change the hex profile to give 3 steps to try and accomodate the variation in sizes of the OEM spindle.
This then made me check a production Engine Guard on some of the dealer bikes (big thanks for them understanding our concerns) and it became apparent that there is a variation between the front engine mounts and the rear centre-stand holes on the bikes, resulting in our Engine guards being difficult to fit to some of the bikes.
So we took the oppurtunity to change the stock, and welding jigs, to give more tolerance for fitting for customers. These are being done now, and will be back at the powder-coating before Friday, so we will have 25 available next Monday 18th June.
This is not ideal, but we were lucky to have noticed the frame differences, only due to our customer's real-world feedback with the spanners. Although we do as much testing by riding the bikes hard off-road before launching products on the shop, we rely on customer's giving us feedback from actual riding and fitting with their own bikes to enable us to improve our products.

The first batch of production spoked wheels for BMW G310GS have arrived, and will be shipped to Bartubeless, in Italy, for their tubeless conversion this week. These will be then ready to ship in 10 days, so we are now taking orders.
The black tubeless will be available to order next Monday, along with Gold or Black tubed wheels.

John is also working on a replacement and adjustable rear brake pedal assembly - something that is clearly a current weak-spot:



Plus a matching folding-tip gear shift lever is in the works too.

More soon as they say...

Has the development been stopped for the adjustable rear brake pedal assembly and matching folding-tip gear shift lever?

Hi Worldbeater - no, but currently other products have taken priority (I trust you appreciate that Rally Raid make a whole range of products for an increasingly wide range of bikes).

The proposal for the G310GS is not simply replacement parts, but a brake pedal that actually goes over the top of the foot-peg, not underneath like the stock one where it is potentially vulnerable (as the photo above illustrates!) so that requires a lot more work than just making a pattern part.

You can expect a range of additional parts for the GS to be available in the new year.
