If you start trying to drop the forks through the yokes your going to mess all the geometry totally up (unless dropping the back the same).

I think you need to go away and think about what you really want
Man, you are mental. If the fork height was sensitive, the Hyperstrada wouldn't come with forks that're almost an inch lower to begin with. I was just asking if the Motard forks can be lowered a bit in their triples if needed to match the Strada's dimensions while retaining the suspension travel.

What's the point of a forum for a particular bike if you can't get some information before you buy one. I'd just like to sort out how much time and money I'm going to need to spend modifying the Ducati before I pick one up new.

well, your're definitely not going to like the stock Strada forks. They suck on the street but might be a little more compliant on the dirt. I plan on changing them as soon as warranty is up.

Personally I'm waiting on a cartridge kit for the forks to give me some adjustability.

surely you'd be defeating the object, fitting sp suspension then trying to lower it to Hyperstrada height, ground clearance wise???
also the springs in the different shocks will be rated/weighted accordingly to the travel they got, also the side stand and center stands will be different length too, I know they are on the low version. The SP and motard has longer travel because it has a greater ground clearance. Call me mental by all means but I ain't stupid.

I suspect anything done domestically will be similarly priced

guess that's still cheaper than an Ohlins fork kit for $1500. Really hope we share setups with other Ducs as I would definitely buy used kit or rebuild off someone going racing.

I think Flee bay prices I have seen for used Ohlins Multistrada have been $1500, new is more like twice that....
