Finally after like 5 years, I may be pulling the trigger on a bike.

1098 26
For those that don't know me or have not seen me on here in awhile I sold my 11 XC about 5 years ago to help pay the bills while my wife was finishing up her schooling. Thought we had enough saved prior but just would not have made it in the end without the sell. Anyways the time has finally come and she gave me the go ahead to find one I want. Have been searching for a solid couple months now and have not come across anything that really stuck out anywhere within decent distance from the bank. Got lucky enough that a guy just put one on like 3 streets down from where I work. What a perfect scenario for me, seeing as how I am a big believer in things happen for a reason. So now for the bike it is a 2016 XC Magnum X1, with 18k miles. Aftermarket includes VM1 cams, Lloydz AF, UD pulley, Barnett Clutch, V&H pipes, and all tuned with Maximus by Conquest whom also did all the upgrade work. Also has taller bars, and a more upgraded sound system. The bag lids are something I will try to get used to but unsure as of yet but does come with the stock ones as well. Only thing I would really like to add is trunk and a more comfy seat instead of the low pro sporty looking seat. Will have better pics when I can but these are from the ad on FB MP. Thank you for reading as I am super pumped about the bike and will be happy to get back on here and talk more.

Welcome back and hope it works out for you! Lots of goodies and love put into that bike it looks like.

remember that the magnum has a lowering link on it IIRC so the travel and lean angle will be reduced compared to your old XC.

Very True!
Your pipes will eventually get messed up. Especially with a trunk. What I did was have mine back cut and now the floor board warning pegs touch down before anything else. If my bike sells without the trunk and Corbin I will post them here first.

Are you selling that beautiful Magnum?
yes. It’s posted in classified.

Im not riding it enough and CFO said something has to go because I’m getting a K1600 GTL. I feel like there is not allot of these wonderful machines out there and Someone else like the OP should have an opportunity. Sure which I would have gotten that x-1 front wheel.

@[email protected], well? What’s the update on getting the Magnum?
Sorry @Chattanooga_Mark, yes I did get it. I really do like the bike. Got to say though with the UD pulley and cams I guess there is a big difference in the feel. Seems to eat RPMS faster or something kinda weird something I have to get used to. Also only rode it home which was like 35 miles but seems maybe it needs run really good for a bit because it felt like every once in a while there would be like little hickups as it was running down the road. Nothing I would think of concern though.

Congratulations on getting the bike. A little rough running if the bike has be idle for a while is easily corrected.

That is the hope put a good couple tanks of gas through it.
