New owner!

Hey guys just sold my 2012 Victory Hammer S and was able to pick up this sweet 2013 Hyperstrada with 6900 miles on it for $5500. It came with a powered Ducati tank bag, Andreani fork inserts, Rapid bike tuner?, upgraded air filter, Arrow exhaust, gear indicator, ceramic coated header pipes, tidy tail kit, steering damper and all the oem parts that were taken off. I have know idea how to access the rapid bike computer or the Andreani inserts. I think I may have gotten a killer deal but not sure. Took the bike out for a quick 10 mile ride in this wonderful Wisconsin spring at 40 degree outside. I took a leap buying this bike because I only test rode a Multi and loved it but couldn't afford one. Gotta say I am going to love this bike!!! Compared to the fatty ass pig of a Victory I had what a wonderful change! If any of you could recommend any other upgrades or how to work any of the ones on this bike I would greatly appreciate it. I guess the only thing I can think of is heated grips.... Its finally being a Ducati owner!

Hot damn that's a steal!

The rapidbike ECU system would need a special cable to go from the ECU to your computer's USB port. This is available here: https://rapidbike.us/products/rb-usb-cable

As for the Andreani inserts, I can see them in the photo out the top of your forks. Look up a manual on how to adjust them to suit you.

Congrats and welcome to the club!

Congrats. That's got most of the expensive/ PITA upgrades out of the way (inserts, RB EVO, exhaust). There's an easy $2,500 in parts he saved you. I'd recommend:
- You'll probably want to address the poor lighting situation
- A little work on the brakes can help if they're making noise or pulsing
- There's a clutch upgrade/fix for the older models
- Some prefer shorter gearing
- Def confirm all service bulletins have been completed

If he has the RB set to adaptive tune, there's nothing to adjust. Kuksol has messed with custom maps, if you're inclined. Do you have any info on the headers? Is it just the stock set wrapped? Arrow doesn't make a full exhaust. Only header set I've seen is by Akra, and it's pricey. Think a member had a custom set made.

Yeah - if you ride at night you want to get an LED headlamp and carefully adjust it - unless you have good night vision. Otherwise enjoy!!

And yes - make sure the service bulletins have been done, especially the TCU - they can only check this at the dealer by looking at the actual part.

wow killer deal, congrats. Monocog007 is correct with the rapid bike, it requires a specific cable and windows only program to make adjustments. Check out kuksul's thread called adventures in Hypermotard tuning for a very good read on tuning the hyper with the rapid bike.

$5500? Hell of a deal that makes me feel slightly sick knowing what I paid for my 2013 that was bone stock. lol.
