Just picked up a standard 1100 Hyper today. I am coming from a Monster. The Hyper was a demo and I plan on using the extra money I saved to do some mods. I hope to learn a thing or two on here.
D00D! Welcome to Hyperland. I seem to remember you from back in the 90's
in my hi-power rocketry days... what a trip (and a money pit) that was! I still
have visions of a pair of K550s strapped under the tail of a Hypertard.
Looking at your list of bikes, seems like you've been having too much fun
as usual... keep up the good work!!
Welcome! After many British and Japanese bikes, of which I still have a few, I became attracted to and purchased a Ducati Hypermotard. I will boldly state that this bike is the most fun motorcycle I have ever owned! Good luck with the bike, and this group is pretty informative and helpful too. Cheers, Martyn
Hmmm....new adjustable pegs from shift-tech.com. I can now stick my foot in there and shift (factory adjustment was not enough). I also like my windshield. It shades the instruments and deflects the wind upwards, away from the chest (now I can work on my neck muscles for those karting outings with my son).
I would suggest you spend a little time riding the bike. Then you'll know what you want to change first. The fork and shock mods are $$$ and maybe you don't need them for the riding you do.I would do the front fork cartridges (Racetech, Ohlins, or GP), then revalve the rear shock for around $1500-2000.
Then do Sick 50's stock exhaust mod for the sound. If you have the cash, then do the full Zard sytem, with DP ECU and PCIII and dyno Tune, which is another $2000. You get great sound, nice power, and low mpg.
Everything else is just bling and can be added whenever you get the urge.

I wanted more grunt so did something similar to Axe's suggestions above for my first mods. Maybe now that the bike really runs (hoo boy does it run now) I'll do some suspension mods.
BTW I have a professionally cored stock exhaust I'm selling if you're looking for something that sounds better than the stockers.
Goin' fer 25
