Have you checked those short clutch/brake levers from Evotech? Apparently from what they list, there are 6 adjustable positions for the levers. I'd argue that your dealer (or you? if you're a hobbyist) can adjust it as well, but then again I'm not really good at technicalities.

Asked the local dealer for Evotech and he says that Evotech hasn't fully developed them yet or are still currently finished test fitting them. So he thinks it might a few weeks before we hear anything.

I have not been able to find adjustable levers for my wife's G310R. Very surprised that there are not more accessories available. Evotech is still under development and CRG has not yet considered this model. If anyone finds a nice available set, my wife needs a set so please mention in the forum.

You just have to be patient as it always takes a while for the accessory manufacturers to catch up on a completely new bike.

Tell that to my wife. :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

If you had a motorcycle that you could not ride because of the ergonomics, you'd likely be less patient. We understand that it is a new motorcycle in the USA. Keep in mind that this bike has been out for over a year in other countries.

Hopefully Evotech or CRG will have something out this year. Adjustable levers was a big miss by BMW as a after market accessory considering the target market.

Yes, I have the same problem as your wife as I have short fingers but hoping someone will come out with some adjustable levers soon. Pazzo have not listed the G310R yet either. I think they will become available in the next few weeks (hopefully!). I am not surprised that BMW have failed on the after market levers as they have completely failed to deliver on all the other supposed accessories. I don't think that they have been available anywhere till this year as production was delayed due to quality control issues.

I understand your disappointment, schwa99x. But the R hasn’t been available for “over a year.” The first ones shipped in April of this year, when they finally started trickling out due to the QC issues that Glencoeman mentioned. I’ve been following its development closely, and if you do a search you’ll quickly find that no one had been able to purchase an R anywhere in the world before then.

And there was never any hint from BMW about offering adjustable levers. So waiting for non-OEM parts was your only option. You can’t blame BMW for not offering what they always told us they had no plans to offer.

I’m first in line at my dealer here in southern Oregon for the GS. But if my must-have options aren’t available (center stand, tall seat) when the first one gets here, I plan on taking a pass and giving up my spot to the #2 customer. Why would I want to spend a lot of money on something that doesn’t work for me?

Fair points. Hopefully, adjustable levers will be available soon. My view is that adjustable levers should have been an accessory option and was a miss by BMW.

Evotech's reply to my email on Friday - "we are still a few weeks away from that bike I am sorry to say."


I suspect we should see a release sometime in November time frame.

I have looked at the website and the levers for sale do not look like they are span adjustable which usually have 6 positions - they appear to be racing type levers with only small adjusters.

are they guaranteed to fit the 310?

V-Trec:


The resulting lever that pops out on that website is not G310R specific. If you look at the list of compatible bikes, pretty much every bike using a cable-actuated clutch must be there! The reason is, this is not just a lever, it also includes the mount/clip that goes on the handlebar.
So yes it would fit but...
1) If you closely at the pictures, you see this lever is actually farther from the handlebar, so not a good option for someone looking for the opposite. (Unless adjustable in a way the photo does not show...)
2) You'd loose the mirror mount.
3) Might have to fiddle for fitting the clutch sensor/switch.
Bottom line, better wait for G310R-specific lever-only replacement options.

As informative as always. I'm glad we have you here! :D

Hopefully Wonderlich will have a decent array of parts and add-on as the bikes become more popular.
They carry just about everything for all other BMW bikes...but almost nothing available for our G310R on the US site.
