BESSY-VSR, a scheme where 1.5 ps and 15 ps long bunches (rms) can be stored simultaneously in the BESSY II storage ring has recently been proposed [1]. The strong longitudinal bunch focusing is achieved by superconducting high gradient RF cavities. This paper presents investigations of coupled bunch instabilities driven by HOMs of superconducting multi-cell cavities in BESSY-VSR. Analytical calculations and tracking simulations in time domain are performed in the longitudinal and the transverse planes and factors that influence the threshold currents are being discussed. Suitable candidates of cavities which are presently available or in the phase of design are compared with respect to their instability thresholds.
