    I can't measure them at the moment but i think you're a bit off with your numbers. They'll be in the region of 45mm diameter though. Someone will be along shortly who knows for sure.

    The gold part of the forks that are clamped into the triple clamps have a taper. Down at the bottom right at the top of the slider protectors is about 50mm....at the top where the gold part goes into the triple clamps it's 57+.....in the straight part that the triple clamps squeeze onto, the OD is about 60.

    OOOPS you are right I’ve just been out and measured them again and they are 165mm so they will be about 50mm diameter (feel daft now) so my question still stands Does any body know were i can get the brackets from. While I was in the garage I stuck a test light in the auxiliary socket and it lite up so everything seems to be in order. So now I’m going to order the lights and get things organised.

    Looks great, I was waiting for this choice to begin the process of updating my trick 300l to the rally bodywork.

    After some digging, I found the connector type. The problem is that it looks like a novelty, and I was not able to find it online without having to order large quantities. The terminals are also hard to come by as well.

    Ordering the lead from https://www.motostuff.com/adv-rally/honda-crf-250l-rally-auxiliary-leads.html is not an option since it would be 50+ $ with shipping to Canada.

    Thanks again for your posting, I’ve completed the installation of the lights now and they look really well. I bought the electric connector wire from motostuff it was $56 delivered to the UK , I’ve made the brackets myself, they need tidying up (painting etc) and the wiring needs routing properly. The next problem I have is how to set them up for the road, I don’t know if they should mimic the head light of the bike, or be set for off road, and to shine onto the floor some distance in front.
    I’m posting a couple of images, dont take to much notice of the brackets they will be sorted later. CAB1DD40-4641-411C-B541-F03FA461D5B7.jpeg B5CC915B-A82F-4CFA-98AE-3810E3AEB6B5.jpeg

    Ok so I decided the brackets looked terrible, 2844CD04-FF13-4183-9269-A372E4745C49.jpeg 6FC56A22-76FD-4568-8EB7-93D6BF889518.jpeg 571697DD-E9C9-40CD-9CD4-4D421F024CEA.jpeg so I’ve had another go and this time they look a lot better, still in the development stage but a dam sight better than the first attempt.

    Is the amount of light they deliver over the stock headlight significant?

    I’m not sure how much extra light they give out, I’m fitting them as a “to be seen” idea rather than to “see with”. It’s still a bit too cold to give them a try but when thing warm up a bit I’ll be going out at night. To be quite honest I think they are for show rather than purpose.

    No ABS model for Canada in 2018 as well there is a $200 Canadian price increase. Latest info from website. The G310GS is starting to look better every day.

    Ya, no ABS in canada. I think it's only country in the world not selling abs model. Sad.
    I was waiting for one. How /not/important is to have abs on this small bike.
    I have only owned bikes with abs.

    How long is a piece of slippery surface?

    Many variables, but as a general rule, I would say if you need to ask, you need to wait

    General speaking: ABS is a must have on every road bike these days. Doesn't depend on size.

    OK So here are a View attachment 1092388 EA6F103E-3A30-42CF-8216-A1E5FF899B5F.jpeg few pic’s of my bike with the day time running lights, I’m still in process of aiming them in the right direction and for some reason the right hand one looked slightly cloudy (might be me) but I’ll persevere, will be trying them at night later just to see if their easier to aim.

    Not a must have for me and my riding environments.

    Nice that in the US market buyers can still choose and evaluate the added cost/benefit for themselves. I opted to have no ABS for myself.
