Anybody installed Multistrada Ohlins forks?

Howdy all y'all!

I joined the forum last year after I had my Multistrada in service for warranty work and the dealer loaned me a Hyperstrada.
Wow, most fun I've ever had on a bike (and I've owned over 26 bikes)!
I sold the Multistrada and (finally) bought a new 2016 Hyperstrada - took delivery a couple weeks ago (already have 700+ miles on it - headed to the dealer for its first service this week).
As with many others on this forum, I would like to upgrade the suspension and am NOT interested in spending $$$. So, trolling ebay for Multistrada Ohlins forks yielded a relatively inexpensive $1K delivered from a number of sources.
So, my question is "has anybody done this swap on their HyperStrada/Motard"?

Randy

Don't think anyone has done it. You likely will need a different axle and/or spacers, and hopefully the fender and ABS sensor mounts line up the same. And make sure the fork crowns are the right diameter to hold the tubes.

Much more common option is a cartridge kit which will cost you the same or more.

I'd love a plug an play fork option over the non-adjustable stock fork. I'll probably end up gong the cartridge route as well unless I get luck and find a take off from an older SP.

Mupo sells a single fork drop in for $400.00. Buy it, install it, and tell us if its any good:-)

I had the same thought in the beginning and do think it is doable BUT...

Here's what I've looked at:
-Multistrada forks and trees measure up quite different (trees are further apart) and are longer in the forks, there's some room to slide the forks up but now what you need
-HM are almost 3" longer and forget about sliding up 3" in the trees
-Discussed idea of making HM SP forks shorter for HS with Dan Kyle (before his arrest), big money like Mupo and since it would be a first, impossible to predict cost out the door
-I think the 1100SP forks look promising but have not checked the dims

Good luck, curious to see what you find...

A cartridge would be a better option over getting SP suspension in my opinion. The cartridge could be ordered correctly sprung for your weight, unlike SP forks.

You can get Andreani inserts for well under $1K. It's still my first choice. Not entirely sure what the labor would cost as you do have to machine some parts of the stock tubes.

Bang for the buck, these look like a good option. I just wanted more compounded by getting carried away with upgrades.
