Hey all! Ive been here on the forum for about 10 years. I have a 1999 supersport, briefly had a 749 and just fixed and flipped an M900. Nothing beats the air-dooled bikes. I LOVED the monster but it was just too cramped, so I think I want to go the hyper rout. Yesterday i picked up one of my bucket list bikes - Hyper 1100 EVO SP

I've been watching this bike on craigslist for TWO months. It kept going down, and down, and down in price. Finally it was attractive enough to jump on it. Well... I now know why it was sitting for so long un-sold. It needs some work:

Front rim VERY SLIGHTLY bent. I believe he didnt even notice it, but I will get it fixed
Rear ohlins is completely blown. Needs rebuild.
Front tire is a Dunlop QUALIFIER (not even a Q2!!!) I have a Q3 to throw on.
Chain and sprockets are toast
Looks like the stator cover may be leaking, but otherwise the engine is very clean. Might replace it with a gasket instead of sealant
brakes feel like shit. need to solve that, hopefully just a bleed.
Body work is rough
He said a master tech did valves/belts, but seeing the condition I will go through it myself.
Has a weird custom exhaust.

Engine seems fine. Sounds great. As mentioned very clean.

I paid $5400, so I dont know if I over paid, but it came with some extremely nice aftermarket parts. I think I am going to ask around here to try and get some stock stuff and return it closer to original.

Cant wait to get it sorted out!!!

Yeah man I am sorry. The distance was a little much. I will spread the word on yours though! Appreciate the messages!

I love that bike model!

I'd consider leaving it until you accumulate another slight bent (If it is hardly noticeable and you plan to put many miles on it).

It reminds me of a joke about a guy looking at a dime inside a spittoon. He had no intention to wet his hand with other guys' spit to retrieve 10 cents. So he threw a quarter into it and said: "I'll do it for 35 cents".

Looks like the stator cover may be leaking, but otherwise the engine is very clean. Might replace it with a gasket instead of sealant
I've heard that the sealant is better than the gasket.

brakes feel like shit. need to solve that, hopefully just a bleed.
Bleeding the rear caliper is tricky. You have to take it out and place it upside down.

Enjoy your new toy!

Congrats on the new project, keep us posted on it. How many miles are on it just out of curiosity?

Interesting muffler, almost looks like one off a stock Japanese sport bike. Yeah, that'd be the first thing to go, at least seeing it off the bike is better than nothing while I work on fixing the other issues things....:grin2:

I hope you have fun getting her back to factory spec. DM me I still have a ton of OE parts that may be of some help :)

After your done working out all the new kinks of the bike....I suggest a quick throttle cam by Electraeon. Shortens up the throttle turn. Just received mine today, install was about 2 mins and feels great. No more awkwardly twisting my wrist to get to full throttle and the bike seems faster :). For $60 bucks and 2mins of wrenching...one of the best mods I've done.

Thanks! I will likely want to track down some OEM parts. Not sure I will go back to stock exhaust just yet, but it's an option

Good eye! It's an R1 muffler. the install is laughably bad. I will need to sort some things out myself. Again... I may leave it for a bit because im just focused on getting it road worthy again. The bike has 11,800 miles. Absolutely on the stock chain/sprockets. Another thing to address....


First order of business a suspension rebuild. Also it has a scotts damper that I will need to rebuild as well.

Could go with a stock muffler system that's been cored (or do it yourself if you wish) on that bike; they're readily available and you'd save some funds for other fixes/repairs.

Yikes, always discouraging to see that type of thing on a Duc but it's great when they change into better hands like yourself who'll bring them around again.

Nothing out of the ballpark, was kind of expecting you to say something like 28k! Saw another 1100 SP for sale recently (don't see them too often) which was listed at having over 20k and I don't think that is quite as common on one of these though... yet, at least on an SP. Although, true story, not going to say which but I was in a Ducati dealership recently and an employee asked how many miles were on my bike and Termignoni exhaust system. I said "just over 11k" and he looked at me bewildered in a sort of "well, you're on your own, man!" impression along with saying they'd never heard of anyone having that many miles on a Termi system before. Just thought that was kind of a funny (and more so) an adolescent response. And no, in no way shape or form is this type of mileage anywhere near uncommon for a modern Duc, many of which even have Termignoni exhaust systems- what a first. Guess they're just used to seeing the showroom models that display 10 miles on them or used to regular customers on a frequent "trade-up" schedule after every couple thousand. The whole thing actually left me feeling a bit gratified. :grin2:

That was a nice bonus it came with.

Keep us posted on your project! She'll be worth the effort and let us know how we can help. Cool bike. :)

I have the stock muffler, but no midpipe as it was ruined to make this setup. One note is that it does have a PCV and an O2 optimizer in it, so it seems to be running pretty strong. That's another reason im not in a huge rush to change it (Although I need to replace the horrible exhaust hanger and fitment issues.. YUCK). I just flipped a monster that the EXACT same scenario played out. Poor neglected bike that I saved and flipped. Even made some money on it! I must love the punishment of buying molested and neglected bikes. HA!

Yeah I was just looking for something under 14k with knowledge that the 7500 valves were done. I know these engines fairly well (air-cooled, not the EVO) and I know they are pretty dead reliable.

I am now researching the front fork oil/seal change, and it seems it may not be as straightforward as other models? I can do the older showas in my sleep, but these sound weird. Do you need any more special tools? Easy to tackle myself?

One reason I bought this thing is that it has absolutely awesome parts. At some point in its life, someone loved it dearly. Hast the 6.4 gal tank, EVR slipper, scotts damper, bonamici rearsets, DP low seat, PCV, and some other small stuff. If I can get it working properly, it will be great. I just didnt expect it to be this bad. I will post pics of the interesting choices made by the PO.

More fun discovered. Rear brake switch doesnt work, and one of the steering stop frame tabs is bent. Luckily not broken, but its not good none the less. Sigh.

Just doing easy stuff now. Cleaned up the bars and grips, started to clean and remove the shock and generally assessing the condition of the bike. Changing the damper oil now. The 2 biggest things to address are the wheel and rear shock.

Oh, and a spare set of carbon 1100S side panels which I'd include.:smile2:
Well I may bu, but it wont be for quite some time. I have a few other costly things to address before I get to the exhaust. I will keep it in mind!

I just finished up the 22k mile service on my 08 1100s. I am gratified every time I fire it up. !!

Here is the update. Working on cleaning up all the wiring/hardware messes the PO made, as well as dirt. Shock is done and will be going on tonight. I got some good cleaning in too! Overall, the bike does seem to be in decent shape. The engine looks very clean. Turns out after cleaning and lubing the chain, they are fine. But I did discover the front brake switch is broken. Will be ordering one of those from Kurvy Girl as that seems to be the best price.

Look at this awful brake routing!!!!


All th grime and oil cleaned up:


Chain cleaned and adjusted. It's not so bad.


Clean engine! the jack stand is there as a precaution. It's not touching the case.


Everything was coated in oil from the shock:
