That would be great! The main differences I’ve noticed are the support arm (maybe not the right word for it) and the angle that the heat shields are mounted. I’m curious if the support arm bracket from the R can be mounted in a way to work on the GS.I have a 2018 R and a 2018 GS -- both with stock exhausts. I can go to the garage tomorrow and shoot various photos of both if it would help.
I bought the R new at Richfield BMW (Minneapolis) in 2019 and rode it home to New Jersey, stopping in Indianapolis for the 600 mile service. It was a great ride and I've really enjoyed the bike. My wife recently decided to try it and quickly gave up her Rebel 250 -- she loves it even more now with a 2 inch lowering link added. It is also making her a better rider. After she started riding the R, I picked up the GS from Hermy's BMW in PA. I'm surprised at how much I love it -- and it makes for great weekend rides having reasonably well-matched bikes (I also have a BMW R1100RSL, which wasn't a great match to her former Rebel). Both the G310R and GS are fantastic bikes.That would be great! The main differences I’ve noticed are the support arm (maybe not the right word for it) and the angle that the heat shields are mounted.

I ended up just gambling and pulling the trigger on the R exhaust so I guess I’ll find out soon either way.
Side note, must be awesome to have both! Although I’m enjoying getting out on some dirt roads, I’d love to see how the road oriented R model feels.
I have no idea what shipping would look like from the US and still don’t have it removed from the bikeHow much for the aftermarket exhaust shipped to uk?
Good to know! That might help with getting the R exhaust to work on the GS.If you buy the Akrapovic it comes with hardware for both the R and the GS. If you threw out the othe piece or the bike was used and did not have it, someone might be selling it online or you should be able to get the missing part from Akrapovic.
