If I were 6'5" I think I'd buy the GS model or the Kawa 300 Versys

Fantastic, I was wondering how to make a mudguard that would come close to actually stopping spray. Are these available from BMW? It does occasionally rain in the UK so a mudguard is useful.

They should be available from BMW, just point them to the fact that they were standard on Australian bikes initially.

What a nice bike! I already liked it before I saw it in the flesh, like it even more now!

It's bigger than I expected. At 6'5" I didn't feel cramped on the bike. Would like to try out the higher seat though.

Also sounds better in real life than on youtube.

I've got a test ride booked in for next weekend.

The rear looks a bit different here in Australia, see attached photo, but the mud guard can be removed.
I think that gs sounds like a scooter with broken silencer. get Akra stainless, it still sounds quiet but more like a real bike.

Porth Congrats on the new bike. I'd hang on to that mudguard, at least until you have gone through your wet season (winter?).
Ironic isn't it, here we are in the UK, famous for wet and horrible weather and the guard isn't fitted, yet in a country that's known for its sunshine (and sadly droughts) its compulsory. (I am not saying OZ doesn't get its fair share of bad weather!)
personally, I would fit one to my R, I've been trying to work out (even on my two previous bikes Honda 500X, Yamaha MT09 Tracer) how I could improvise and make something exactly like the one you have taken off.

Thanks, that was almost two years ago, time flies when you're having fun on a 310


I try not to ride when it's raining too badly, for the one or two times when a mud guard like that would come in handy I don't think it's worth it.


I'll dig it up from under the house (not literally) and try to find a part number on it, might help others who want to get one.

it is funny. everybody is fitting tail tidy, and here an even bigger things is attached to it. ugly? probably. why not to fit the the rear wheel hugger against rains splashing? there is already an attachment for it: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/For-...881403773.html
