    Hi Eccles,

    I am researching the G310R and saw you have ridden the Oxley highway on it. I'm keen to know how the bike was on that road in the tight sections going uphill. I am thinking about buying the bike and have similar roads close to me but I'm concerned there won't be enough torque. I currently ride a G650GS and used to have a Vstrom 650 so am used to a reasonable amount of surging torque around Oxley type bends.

    Any help much appreciated!

    Cheers.

    Lee.

    Hi MichaelJ,
    That’s the only one I have that shows where the accessory plug is zip tied. This has been taken on the left side looking up under the tank. You can see at the bottom of the pic the header pipe from the cylinder head.
    It also sits behind the triangular battery cover.

    Hopefully that helps. Note that is another plug in the headlight some where, this for a 310 R.

    OK, I now see you have a GS, alas I have not been able to locate an accessory plug on that bike (although there must be one near the headlight for the heated grip option).

    I wired my GPS on the GS direct to the battery so not switched.

    Hi,

    Regarding the pic you posted of the bike's accessory plug mounting - would you happen to have a pic that shows more of the bike? I'm unable to correlate your pic with my bike.

    Thanks - I appreciate any more info that you can give.
