Does anyone know how to get the left fork leg on the 2014 Hyperstrada apart. Do you just unscrew the fork cap and pull? I had mine apart but it did not want to come apart, didn't pull very hard.

Right leg Went to 20 wt oil And added 45 cc oil. It does work a bit better for me, helps the dive, unstable feeling when on the brakes going in to the turns.
Gregg,
I did an upgrade to my front suspension this past weekend. See my post here to see what's required to get that leg apart.

So far it was worth the effort. Much better ride, great stability, reduced dive, and bumps no longer change the line through the curves.

I really don't understand the fork problems you guys talk about.. Mine is a 2014 and I am really impressed with the way the bike handles.

you have to ask ducati for that


maybe you are simply too slow, and you will not recognize it on straight roads

i drive motorbikes since nearly 40 years and i never had a sideways moving frontwheel on bad roads, only my HS managed this.
after andreani upgrade it works as it is designed for

guys, I think you all have some points. The HS is a great bike on the road. It is also a niche model, and not a major Ducati platform, like the Multistrada is. The MS gets the absolute best suspension components that Bologna can source and develop. The HS is lighter and smaller, and much cheaper than the MS (main reasons I picked it over the MS). To make the HS hit a price point that the MS never could, the HS has some more basic and less expensive components. My bike rides very well in stock form, but the fork is not very sophisticated (nothing much at all in the left leg....), making it an area where it can be much improved (unlike engine, brakes, etc.). My only complaint with the folks in Borgo P. is that they didn't take the time and effort to offer suspension upgrades from the factory for those of us that wish to spend some money to upgrade our HS (without the height of the SP). They could have had Ohlins make something closer to what the MS gets for a few grand as an upgrade option.... but as far as I know Ohlins still makes nothing for the HS forks... too bad, as I would definitely splurge on that to upgrade my HS....

So, has anyone seen a serious technical comparison of the known fork options from Mupo, Andreani, Traxxion, etc.?

Maybe I think you talk a lot about things you don't know much about.
