Default forgot to flash superuser.....what now

I just installed hyper drive release 17, and I forgot to flash the superuser zip after the rom...now I am running hyperdrive 17 not rooted and cannot reinstall safe strap as I am not rooted...not sure where I should go from here. Searched around the forums a bit, found some things to try, but if someone else has had this problem I would rather hear them out before I start tinkering and possibly brick my phone. I am on 4.4.2 update.

That was my first instinct...but I wasn't sure if that was safe when on a custom rom.

No need to flash SuperSu in recovery after Root is acheived from installing Towel Root. Just go to Play Store and install newest version.
