I was wondering whether anyone has upgraded their suspension to HyperPro? If so, I'd love to read your feedback, and even see some pics if possible! :grin2:

Great to hear Kris, could you please tell me more about the difference from stock (handling on/off-road, braking, etc), and any other feedback? Thanks in advance! :)
Stefan. Much superior. No more front diving and the bike is much more stable. they are not expensive. if you need tips how to install them, let me know. I did it alone.

The diving has been a huge gripe, and great to hear that the front end is much more stable on all fronts. I considered the Tractive suspension, but the cost is prohibitive, especially when considering HyperPro was started from ex Ohlins people...soooo much cheaper and more flexible options!

I'm genuinely interested to learn more about your installation, by all means, please share! :D

the right fork is easy to install. just take the fork out; first unscrew the bolt holding it on the side and from top unscrew the main bolt a bit. then unscrew it fully and dump all the oil out and take the old spring out; fill the oil - measure the air gap (they give you the number). pump it many times pulling the inner rod. fit the new spring, etc... i have special tools, but you can do it without with help of another person.....

the left fork is more of challenge, because there is an inner bolt below the top bolt that holds the whole thing together and 'special tool' is needed to remove it. there is no spring in the left fork. i just heated it up with the heat gun (because it is heavily glued) and used leather-man pliers to open it. then you just fill with fork fluid, slide the spring in, and close the whole thing. make sure that you remember that there is a washer and it needs to go in the right order. the washer...i think it is in the right fork...

Hi, I’ve installed both front and rear springs from Hyperpro. Needed some help from a dealer to get the rear spring changed, but all in all not too difficult to do. Big difference and also a bit taller now. No significant diving when braking, and sits perfect in curves. Highly recommended.Y

Thanks for the recommendations everyone! I've been torn between the Tractive, Wilbers and HyperPro for ages, but have decided to go for the HyperPro setup, and they're in-stock here in Australia which saves $'s and postage hassles. Did you all go for the Street Box package btw?

Hi Stefan it would be great if you let us know how you get along with this setup after you have given it a try out.

+1! I'm trying to decide between this and the Rally Raid (Tractive) option, and would welcome any input.
RR set up is easier, because you fit only one spring on the right leg, while in Hyperpro you need fit two springs and it is a bit difficult to open the left leg inner lock. Personally have heperpro on the front and Tractive shock on the rear.
