The Magna has many very nice attributes, and I have added some things to address some of the shortcomings.
to address the gas mileage/small tank issue I changed the gear ratio by adding a 17 front sprocket
I am running stage 1 jets to correct the lean issue so common in those bikes.
The current setup get me around 42 mpg (135-ish per tank) @70-75 on the highway.
I have some cortech bags for the storage issue that can carry all that I need to.
it is my daily driver and the nice things about the bike (handling/performance) really stand out with how it is set up now.
I am more annoyed with the grapefruit sized panniers on the NM4 honestly, for being so large, they sure are small. That really limits my use for that bike.
