Came back home to a nice bunch of packages and immediately dug in and started installing. List includes:

R&G Radiator Guard
R&G Tail Tiday
Sequential LED Turn Signals
Oversized Footpegs
Adjustable and Foldable Levers
Dominator HP3 Exhaust
New Top Case
Tank Knee Grip Pads
Progrip Gel Dual Sport Grips

Still waiting on the center stand, bar risers, hand guards and engine bars. I think this stuff will hold me over for now though. =P

I really like the look.
I too have the high rise exhaust, but from Remus. Better sound, weight reduction and looks from OEM in my opinion.
Really like the tail tidy, it's on my wish list.
Best thing about the bar risers that I did not even consider was that it also raised the mirrors up for better visibility.
The handguards too are a must have, as I no longer get bees stuck in between my fingers. 😂

I believe the brand is Baretta. I ordered them from eBay but I have recently seen the same set on Amazon. The LH pad has the GS logo on it.

sweet setup!


hows the turn signals?
easy to install? they need the resistors?
and where did you buy it from?


thanks /forum/images/smilies/smile.gif
Turn signals are nice and bright but they do flash a bit fast. I tried them with an 8ohm resistor but it did not affect the speed sadly. Install was straight forward but did involve taking off almost all of the bodywork to do it properly.

I definitely agree with you about the high mount exhaust. I really wanted the Remus but when I came across this one for $250 I gave it a chance. So far so good, although it is a tad loud. Sounds a lot like my buddy's DRZ400 with an FMF pipe. If you do get the tail tidy be prepared for taking the whole tail section off. The install was much more intensive than the ones on my previous bikes.

Hey, looks good. I recently had to adjust the gear lever on my G310GS to accommodate new riding boots. To get access to the adjustment nuts I had to remove the rear foot peg frame. I was surprised by the weight of the rear foot peg frame, 1.7 kgs/3.7 pounds. I thought removing them could shave an easy 3.4kgs but the foot peg on the other side also serves as the standard exhaust attachment point. After mounting your high mount exhaust, I assume the rear peg frame is now free to be removed?

I want to say that it should be able to be removed now but I'm not 100%. I'll take a look at it when I get home tonight and confirm one way or the other.

Just confirmed that the passenger pegs and supports can be removed when using the high mount exhaust. You weren't kidding either, they are surprisingly heavy! I would suggest either getting a spacer for between the cover and frame or finding shorter bolts as the ones on the right side get close to the swing arm and the left very close to the chain.

Nice bike mate! Just wondering if there were any modifications needed to be made to the hp3 exhaust to make it fit the g310gs? Dominator says 9n their website that it is designed for the r ann not available for the gs.

I managed to do it by merely removing the pedal at the pivot point.
