Hi all,

I'm from the UK and found this forum while I was searching around for a new exhaust to put on my brand new G310R.

It's my first bike and it's an absolute treat, my dad has an S1000R it literally looks like my bike's big brother!

It's smooth and lovely to ride, while being nippy and quick when I need it to be. The only thing is the sound with the stock exhaust, it sounds a little suppressed idle but when revving it actually sounds quite nice!

All in all, I love my G310R! :)

Welcome, and congrats on the first bike!

As far as I am aware, only Akrapovic have released an exhaust for the G310's just now - Akrapovi? (can buy from here)

I'm sure many other manufactures will follow soon however.

Congrats on getting your first bike! Hopefully not the last. As for exhaust, the G310R is still relatively new so the aftermarket needs time to catch up and as Arwen said, only Akra has one right now.

Wouldn't be adverse to seeing your G310R alongside the S1000R.

If it was all black, it would literally look like a mini S1000R haha that's cool!!

Welcome to the forums as well, great to have you aboard

Do you have any complaints other than the exhaust so far??

Looking good oldschoolwolf! I've heard of taking out the exhaust baffle for a louder sound, but I'm not familiar with the process or is if there are any negative implication from doing so.

I'd wait for yoshi to come out with something, they're pretty well known for being loud and sporty aren't they?

I'd love to change the white bits to black to make it all black!

The only things I can say about it is that the clutch is veryyyyy light so quite easy to stall and it's hard to find neutral sometimes but I think that's due to the fact it's a brand new bike and just needs working in still.

I've researched into taking the baffle out but I think it might be spot welded so I don't want to be messing around with that. Think I'm just going to wait for a nice slip on exhaust that I can stick on easy.

I can see that, I wouldn't want to tackle disassembly of that and trying to put it back together and all of that stuff. But if you do tackle making it all black, I would be interested to see the process!

Is there a way to stiffen up the clutch a bit? Stalling is one of those things you hate doing around the city, especially at lights with cars waiting to move behind you.

I'm horrible with finding the friction zone especially since I haven't ridden in a while, this could be bad for me when I'm trying to go from a dead stop. Let us know if ti improves over time.

Every spring I have to reintroduce my fingers to the clutch. But they go back a long way now, so pretty soon they're back in sync. Practice, practice, practice!:wink2:

I have a Honda Grom and the stock clutch has a late and short engagement point that's feels mushy. I put in some stiffer clutch springs and it helped a lot. It's still short and late but feels much better.

It's definitely going to take a lot of practice, but that's why I'm not spending too much on my first bike and getting something like the G310.
@oldschoolwolf have you gone on the freeway yet? Are there a lot of vibration at speed?

Come time for these G310R's to hit the used market in good numbers, used buyers during that time will be lucky. As a beginner I wish bikes as good as this were around. We have good options right now but the G310R is right up their with the best of them.

Hi guys,

Still loving my bike! Got in booked in for it's first service in a weeks time.

As for the clutch issue, I think that was just my own personal thing because it's got a million times easier now I have a bit more experience on it.

It's a joy on the motorway, I can easily get up to speed to overtake or get myself out of trouble! As for vibrations like you ask - not much at all, really. It's quite comfortable at high speed!

I've been taking it on the bendy country roads to get my tyres and brakes worked in and I must say it's the most fun I've had on the bike so far.

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear you're enjoying it so much with little to no drawbacks. Whats that rear tire looking like so far? ;)

Clutch sweet spot differs from model to model so it could take some getting used to. As a new rider, that'll definitely be something that takes a lot of practice. But from your review, it sounds like the g310r is perfect for all types of riding.

Clutch grab points are guaranteed always to be different. But for grabbing the lever itself, you can always change them out to something a bit more comfortable and adjust accordingly
