    Have a question for Motorace. BMW
    310GS takes a 150 rear like a oil cooled 1200. The 150 plus is for heavy bikes.
    Wouldn't a 140/80 E07 be the better choice, since a 150 E 07 is no longer made.
    My local dealer's supplier is out of stock, so they should be contacting you tomorrow.

    I always thought the 310 should be a 140/80-17. BMW thought otherwise. In person, its a much smaller machine than the rest of the line that ran the 150/70-17. The smaller tire would have little effect on load capacity and would help the bike keep it nimbleness. BMW thought otherwise.

    I do know some 1150/1200 riders have run the smaller 140 in a pinch and been OK with it.

    If BMW wants the 310 to mount the 150, I say stay with it. They may see things we don't.

    Tires should be here tomorrow. Just a shout out to say thanks in advance. Cheapest price for the set and saved me $23 in tax, great deal.
