Andreani fork cartridge installed on Hyperstrada

I found the Hyperstrada front end a little harsh for my liking. Did some online searches and found this Andreani fork kit.

This is my first experience buying a Andreani-made fork component. Both the packaging and installation instructions were v good.

A local suspension shop helped with installation. The process took less than 3 hours with more time spent dismantling OEM fork sleeve.

Ride feel is a marked improvement over non-adjustable OEM shocks. Going over large speed bumps didn't send big jolt to handlebar. The recommended settings helps the HS hold a tight line. But on a bumpy road surfaces, it may be too edgy for my liking. Hence I backed off on the rebound and compression and waiting to test new settings later this week.

This is good!

We need a fork thread with sources for upgrades.

Could you post up some links of the sourcs for parts and the shop that did the work please.

Suspension-wise? Or what simple mods did you make?

I changed to 5wt oil and took 10mm off the springs spacers. I am 185 lbs. Run the shock about 4 clicks back from full preload.

This made the highspeed rebound faster, and less preload was perfect for my rider sag.
Posted several months ago right after I bought the bike.

Nice. I will do this some day. Think this is possible for the somewhat mechanically inclined?

What did they replace stock fork oil with?

I have a set on order from Omnia Racing in Italy. Hope to get a good result

Interested to know also what oil weight and quantity you used with the Andreani cartridges

Look forward to some more feedback from you on your experience with these cartridges.

I followed the recommended Ohlins oil type, oil level and air chamber gap.

Adjustments for Rebound and Compression are on top of fork unit. The left side is for Rebound, and right side for Compression

So is this basically an Ohlins strut? Wonder what makes it Andreani?
