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.

What part of NorCal are you from netaron? I've got a 2013 Strada that I've upgraded to SP. I'm near the Los Angeles crest.

We are in the east bay area, 20 or so miles from San Francisco, but moving to Arizona shortly.
