    Nah, that's not the one I was thinking of. But what's with those fucking tires?!

    I got my '08 1100 S for $4800, I think, down in Texas. Yeah, it's gonna cost me money to ship it back here, but there are some bargains around if you can look outside of NNE.

    I used motorcycleshippers.com - I'd expect them to charge you roughly $600 bucks to ship to your door with $7k in insurance.

    They strap it to a pallet and are very professional from my one experience. I'd use them again.

    I'd get the tank. For me, that bike needs added range more than it needs added power. 100 miles per tank is not livable with my usage. That's exactly why the MV Agusta Brutale (4-cyl) and the original KTM SuperDuke never made my shortlist, and I'm sketchy on the Aprilia Tuono V4. The new SuperDukes have a bigger tank for more range, and therefore now are a valid alternative.

    My M900 Monster came with a 200-mile range, and I like that. Less than 150 is a real demerit on my report card.

    100 mile range is a PIA even just riding around for a couple hours in western mass...there's some long stretches with no gas!

    That's a really great price for that bike, but you'll definitely want to know if the Termi's were installed along with the corresponding DP (Ducati Performance) ECU. If not there's a 99% chance you'll want/need a PC/Bazazz or another brand fuel management system, even with the DP ECU you may want to adjust the fueling...

    Someone with more experience can speak to the longevity of dry clutches, mine's been trouble free though. But, my clutch basket is getting notched up pretty good, and louder, from those rattling clutch plates, from what I've read I probably should replace the basket soon.

    I asked around and researched all the same questions you seem to have, my bike has been truly trouble free and so much fun to ride. My only gripe would be the cost of everything labeled Ducati... Tools, parts, gear, apparel, it's over the top.

    Thanks for your feedback, definitely appreciate it. I might shoot you a PM with a few more questions if you don't mind.

    Dry clutches feel different, but work just fine. Longevity isn't a problem. They're noisy. They're easier to inspect and service.

    Wheelie machine -- you'd have that. The 1100 aircooled 2-valve has a mountain of torque.

    Having to replace a fuel tank right off the whack would be a big hit financially so I'd really need to avoid it, or look into options like the casewell coating. I'm hoping valley motorsports can tell me if the bike is affected based on the VIN

    Caswell is not perfect. I had two bikes done with it both Ducati. Both still swelled. Three tanks I have gone through on the sportclassic.

    Wow, I've never heard of anyone who had swelling after a Caswell coating, any chance the application was sub-par?

    Negative, I had a reputable shop do each. Believe it or not, the caswell started to come off on the inside. Caldwell is not a fool proof fix.

    Man, that sucks, how long after applying did it start peeling?

    Lots of Caswell fail stories on the britbike.com forum.

    When I got my Hyper new in 2012, I went for the CA Cycleworks tank first thing. Love the 300 mile range.

    Re: how many Hypermotard owners do we have here?

    I picked up one of the first Hypers to hit the shops in 08, still on my original tank with no "swell" issues at all. Maybe one of the good points of the 3.4gal/100 mile tank is that it's constantly empty / being turned over.

    Re: how many Hypermotard owners do we have here?

    Finally got my ass down to Austin to ride the '08 1100S. And with that, what are you guys doing for suspension?

    I'm on the heavier side (220lbs) so I might need stiffer springs up front. I believe factory front springs are progressively wound, and most people go linear in the aftermarket. As far as I know both the front forks and rear shock are all stock.

    Does the 1100S need anything done to its suspension? I thought the Ohlins are great.

    It's an S, yeah. The regular bikes have Kayaba forks, the S bikes have Marzocchi forks. Neither of them are known to be particularly fancy setups...

    I see...my bad. I thought the Marzocchi forks were actually good as well from here 2008 Ducati Hypermotard 1100S - Motorcycle USA
    "A fully-adjustable 50mm DLC-coated Marzocchi long-travel fork with a matching Marchesini 17″ front wheel and 120-series Pirelli tire do a stellar job of absorbing road imperfections and remain well composed throughout all the riding environments we could throw at it on the street or the track."

    I'm far from a fast rider - in fact I'm a slow rider - but the front end feels vague and kinda weightless, if that makes sense.

    I'm quite a bit heavier than your typical Italian test rider, so heavier springs make sense. The consensus on The Interwebs is that the progressive front springs are rated to ~0.65kg/mm for a ~160lb rider. I have no idea how accurate those figures are, but I'm certainly heavier (220lbs) than your average Italian test jockey.

    Point taken. They are designed for lighter riders.

    Anyone here run a steering damper on their Hyper? Worthwhile investment?

    Re: how many Hypermotard owners do we have here?

    I've ridden with one and without, both on the street and on the track, and I'm of the opinion that with a properly setup bike (suspension wise) there is absolutely no need for a damper.

    Re: how many Hypermotard owners do we have here?

    New to this forum, I have a '10 796. Not registered at the moment but last year I was using it as a rain bike for track days. Thinking about putting it back on the road for this year as I will no longer be street riding my zx6.
