Well, the height of the bike is a compound problem. I mean, the ground clearance is really low; plus, the fact that the spring on the rear shock it's meant to support somebody that weights about 65-70kg.

I Ride: 2016 Hyperstrada 939
My HS is a 2016 939 and not labelled as low. However in the Manual has 2 different chain settings, 1 for standard & another for low bike. Mine has the setting for a low bike on the swing arm.

I Ride: 2016 Hyperstrada 939 red, 2006 MotoMorini Corsaro 1200 black/silver
i had a 821 2013 normal HS and now a 2016 939 one.
both have the same height, i measured them, i had them side by side, exactly the same.
i suppose that a low one is especially labeled as low in the papers and somewhere on the bike, otherwise it's a normal height one.

at streetuse, also at faster drving on our mountain roads in the alps, i never had a problem with groundclearance. with my wife on the backseat sometimes in curves when it fells into a bump, the main stand has contact. the funny thing at that - this does not occur at high lean angles but more at medium ones .
but it's definityl not for track use. i habe been on tracks with my 821 and 939 some times and my shift and brakelevers did not live long there, footpegs also lost aluminium and my dainese boots some leather and rubber.
i use my Corsaro now for tracks and look for an older RSV Mille for next year for tracks.

so, if you or someone wants to use it for tracks, it definitly has to be brought to the height of the normal hypermotard or even to SP heigth. HS is too low, even the standard heigth one.

Dimelo, could you throw me a link to the TNK company you found that makes the inner tubes? I just bought the Mupo cartridge kit for my motard and looking to DLC the inners. I might just end up buying new inners for my project. Where abouts are you in Japan?
