Put a set of wasp velocity stacks, Power Commander V, a lightened flywheel, a visi tech exhaust servo eliminator, LV cat bypass, free'r flowing exhaust or slip on mufflers, steering damper, and rear end height adjuster link and you'll really be in love with it. I know I did all of these and then some and it is the funnest bike I've ridden to date, hard to ride it "legal" though. :)

Thanks for the suggestions! I think I'll concentrate on suspension and handling first. The thing definitely needs a steering damper, and I'll throw Ohlins internals in the front. Ride height adjustment is an excellent idea. I think I'll leave the engine alone for a while, I may get into too much trouble with it as is!! :)

Sorry for being a newbie, but what's a "rear end height adjuster link" and who makes them?

Thx

I agree! these bikes(and air cooled monsters) are perfect for a true motorcycle enthusiast! Its just the bare essentials w a frame, motor and wheels. Only the parts to make it look cool and operate it are there.

They need some tuning to clean up the fueling the factory stuck us with to pass emissions stuff or whatever...Then, Once uve put a couple hundred miles on it and are comfy ull probably pick up the pace and notice the suspension could be improved upon. Ive kindof overlooked that as the motor is fun now that i 'fixed' the lean surge and freed up some midrange w filters,ecu and exhaust mods. It always has a good squirt of torque above ~3000 rpm to accelerate out of corners and stuff.

Now i need to figure out what to do with the suspension like others have mentioned.

I too am new to the Hyper and this forum. I bought a brand new 2008 1100s about 3 months ago and am just loving it. I have found this bike a perfect fit for an old dirt rider from the 70s. Over the years I have been thru multiple MXrs, Enduros, Drag bikes, Sport bikes and Sport tourings, But this one is a keeper. Enjoy!

Adjustable ride height rod found stock on the 1100s but not on the 1100. Not sure about Evo and Evo sp models. Can also be bought from motowheels.com Corse Dynamics or fast by ferracci. Unknown to me if anybody makes it locally in the uk.

It's a great feature on Ducs. It allows you to separate race sag from ride height adjustments. If you look to the side of your rear shock you will see a link with rod ends on it. On the S and SP models it has threaded rod ends that let you change it's length. That changes the ride height which in turn changes rake\trail independent of sag.

Andrew Trevitt, editor at Sport Rider, wrote a great book on setting up sport bikes and it's under $20 at Amazon.

Just got my new 2012 Hyper EVO SP three weeks ago. I pretty much did what poakone said. Termi 2-1, Waspworx PUC, Power Commander V, EVR slipper. Just put the Waspworx and Power Commander in on Saturday. What a beast, I will probably never need a new front tire. Too much fun.

Me Too

Just got a 2012 1100 EVO SP about a month ago. WASP PUK, Termi 2-1, EVR slipper, Scotts dampener. I can't stop smiling. Very difficult to ride legal though. I do wheelies at almost every light, can't help myself, it's just trght there.
