hyper race bike

sorry for the not technically a hyperstrada question but i did recently buy a hyperstrada for a road bike after 10 years not riding on the road but doing supermoto and mx.

I took it out on a track day and basically destroyed it

pegs, gear lever, brake lever side stand (i had to remove the centre stand because it was gonna kill me) are ground down to nothing

there isnt enough left on the rear brake to press it without pressing the actual lever.

has anyone raced one and can give any tips? Im looking at a 2015 hyper sp to convert to fit withing bears f3 rules to do our national series but would probably also do F2 (600s/R6's etc) in club series, I love sticking it sideways up the sportsbikes.

the questions is has anyone raced one, found anything in particular that worked (im guessing way heavier rear spring - Im a lean 95kgs) and way firmer suspenders. But are there steeper triple clamps and other bits that will sharepen it up (I have bee googling but wondering if anyone has any experience)

no need to mention suspension, I was expecting it to be retarded.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Honestly if itís already handling well enough for you to grind down a bunch of hard parts, the first move is to raise those hard parts with some rearsets. If youíre planning to replace the suspension eventually, why pay more to start with an SP? More to your question, Iíve never seen one raced locally but have seen plenty at track days. Ducatis are pricey to race so the guys/gals that do so tend to start with something lighter like an 848.

Cool...I've upgraded my shift lever, you can have my old stock on. Consider Rizoma rears with vari adjustment to get them up. Without rear rearsets, it's hard to get the brake and shifter up. SP has about 3 inches more vertical, so you'll need some inseam of you upgrade the forks and rear shock. If you have the trees with the forks, everything should be a bolt on.

Would love to see pics of her in action on the track...
