I Ride: Hyperstrada 939, and others
Sold my hyperstarada 939, bought...

After a reality check, I ended up selling my hyperstrada939 with around 5k miles. The suspension was the weak point of the bike for me. It seemed like an afterthought, I understand cost savings and all. I did look into upgrading the suspension, it wasn't a viable route. I needed to raise her a minimum of 1", but 1-2" would've been ideal.

I did remove the centerstand for additional clearance, and bolting it back on is maybe a 5 minute job. But the rear shock is not sufficient for the twisties, I'm 5'10" @ 170 with gear to give you an idea. The only viable (and semi-affordable) route was to find a used set of forks and shock from a regular hypermotard and then have them reworked. Very time consuming and not the most economical route.

Option 2 was to find a complete set of hypermotard sp forks and shock. Not 100% sure if that would've worked on the hyperstrada. Upgrading the current suspension as RSL has been kind enough to share was not an option for me, heck I could've lived with the current suspension if the bike had more clearance. This became an issue with luggage and wife on pillion, even with full preload.

A friend was selling his 13 hypermotard sp and I couldn't pass it up. It has more miles, but the difference in handling is a no-brainer. So I guess this brings me to my next question; I like this forum, and although it doesn't get much traffic, imo that's not a bad thing compared to some of the other forums.

So I hope everyone doens't mind if I still hang around lol....I have started seeing some hypermotard related posts here...so I guess that's ok I just purchased a windscreen and I'll also be looking into adding some panniers eventually.

I had a 2014 Hyper SP all along, it's fundamentally the same bike and all the info here is interchangeable!

Sounds great! The bike has a little over13k miles, if there's anything I should look out for, the input is much appreciated. Thanks.
