Strider - throw a headlight on your SMR, swap the plates from your Hyper, and ride the KTM on the road. Suspension on that bike (stock) is bad ass.

PS - nice meeting you at the track yesterday. Like I said, the Andreani kit is OK, not great. Not close to the stock SP but better... If you're going next Sunday I'll bring my Strada down and you can ride it on the track. I'll be riding your SMR though... LOL.

Hey there he is!!! I just couldn't street legalize the KTM it would be like an unholy act. It's a race bike and I love it. I just get my stuff all resprung and revalved then get a 748 to add to the collection . It was nice to meet you and assist in your new addiction. I'll be there for both days this weekend, I just need transport....

Hi,

My Dealer has ordered new upgraded springs for my 2013 Hyper at Wilbers...
They have received two springs?!
Also my Dealer confirmed that 2 springs were needed...
I will know more after the 14th of October...

I updated what I said in my earlier post in this thread. There are indeed springs in both of the Hyperstrada's fork legs. Only one leg has a cartridge with damping in it.

Strider - you mentioned your MPG's are horrible with the Hyper. Just read in a separate thread that the Termi greatly effects the MPG's. Interesting... I have the "slip on" Termi with new mapping, probably just like you.

To the suspension experts here - I've been mulling changing the suspension, at least the front, on my hyper for a while now, and after testing a semi-adaptive ohlin's equiped multi, I think I'm sold on changing my suspension - just not sure what are the best paths to go.

I was thinking going crazy and either getting the hypermotard SP suspension...or a full Íhlins system...For those that know Íhlins, is it possible to buy a full system and their controller to get an electronically adjustable suspension and strap it onto a bike not made for it?

For me, I continually change from riding one-up to two-up and not being able to change the front suspension to match the change in weight quickly/at all is a huge let-down.

Anyone got any thoughts to put towards this?

I'm not an expert so I'm making this up as I go: I think the rear is the place to adjust for 2 up. If the stock shock isn't adequate - that's where I'd invest the most money.

Racetech makes cartridge emulators for the front - I'd talk to them about getting the best front fork compromise set up for your needs. I've only heard good things about them. They can also modify the rear if it is too soft.

The investment in an aftermarket electronic suspension (if it exists) would be very very expensive. If you're already doing a lot of 2 up riding - it might just be a case of fine tuning.
