Yeah from what I heard the 939 isn't as jerky or doesn't surge as bad or at all as the 821.
Keep posted man on your upgrades.

I should add that this solution is not coming cheap. Dave gave me a break on the custom TTX at $1500 but the Mupo custom K911's are a whopping $1750. I got the bike at an end of year sale for $11k so with the suspension I'll have close to $15k into it. I look at it as though I've just built a higher end SP Strada I guess.

+1

For what I'll have in farkles and suspension, it will be an HyperStrada SP+ but I promised the old lady I'd leave the engine alone on this one, so it won't be an SP-RR, which is a bummer since I think I can get a 1200 engine in this...

I've always preferred suspension modifications over anything engine relates because it offers the best performance boost on mountain backroads.

I guess if your goal is stop light to stoplight racing, engine and exhaust mods might be more important. But then, your money might be better spent getting a KTM Super Duke R if quick speed is what motivates you.

Suspension modifications also greatly increase safety as the better the tires remain connected to the road surface the better your ability to turn and brake will be. Both are critical when the poo is hitting the paddles.

For any of you that replaced the fronts, did it settle the high speed instability in the front end? At 85+ mph, my bars are very light and hitting anything that upsets the front end causes a slight ripple through the front end to the bars. Makes me really not riding above this speed for long distances.

I'm gonna do suspension upgrades once I get the opportunity but trying to determine if this is more a steering damper issue. Granted, I can tell this bike isn't designed to haul that much ass, especially with the bags on, as I normally ride.

I never ride with the bags on, and despite a number of times riding above 85 have never felt any instability. Always feel stable.

Bags on the back of a bike are a well known source of instability. Especially top cases.

I've not noticed anything like that (2015 'tard with stock suspension). I did have the suspension set up not too long after I got it.

That involved adding some sag to the rear end as well as setting the rebound damping along letting the fork legs slide up maybe 1/4 of an inch in the triple. Bike feels pretty well planted even when I'm pushing 100 on the highway and we don't exactly have smooth tarmac here in northern California.

Does anyone have any experience with the Ohlins damper on the HS?

Just rode my 939 HS through a bad storm (140km/h/90MPH headwinds) fully loaded with bags and top box. The bars wiggled sometimes due to oncoming semi-trailer turbulence, but soon settled down. Without the truck turbulence the bike would run waggle-free to 200kmh (120MPH) no problemo. I reckon the lower front end of the strada, with the puny 130mm of wheel travel, makes it more stable than a motard.
