Painted front fender and rear fairings black. Changed out hand rails with a black luggage rack (Givi Topcase forthcoming). Pulled off side fairings. Added engine crash bars. I read in other threads that people thought that stripping the side fairings gave the bike an emaciated look. I agree but the crash bars help fatten her up. Before buying this bike, I couldn't find one pic of a naked G310R so I am hoping this post helps future streetfighter builders.

looks great with the crash bars !
Awwww man!!! PLEASE MORE PICS! The roundie was my next mod....but trying to figure it out. May I ask which kit you used and how nasty is it behind the OEM light fairing? Please share a build thread. I am also thinking of adding another custom crash bar to protect upper area.

Is your seat brown? I'm already in talks with a seat upholster guy to do a deep dark saddle brown diamond pattern on mine and your bike inspired me to do brown grips too.

Where is the front fender from? Looks awesome. Are you planning on adding "scrambler" like tires?

you can find my pics on IG: izzy_rida

On another note....just fitted my Givi top case. Ruins the aggressive look I was going for, but since this will primarily be a city rider, a case is a must as to haul groceries, small tools, and gear.

Looks great when the bike is completely black
I did not like the black / white one when it came out and I still do not like this 'version'.
A few months ago my dealer made a complete black one for a new customer and it looked, in my opinion, much much better (GREAT !)

I'm glad mine is completely blue and I don't have to change anything.

It's probably nothing, but have you checked your chain sag, just seems a bit saggy, probably just the angle at which the photo was taken.

do you need a special type of paint on the exhaust? can I just use the usual paint can from the hardware store?

You will need a special heat resistant paint, however, these should be available at auto stores.
