Always best to get a lower seat 1st.
Lowering the bike itself changes the geometry of the bike and reduces lean angles..
IF the lowering parts are NLA, they probably come up on ebay from time to time, but you can just buy shorter shocks for the rear and let the forks slide up in the triple trees about an inch so they stick up at the top.
You can also go with a shorter tire on the front (this will throw off your speedo)

The Garage / Lower Magna750 2002

Just bought my 2nd Magna and need help lowering.  Tried to purchase the Cobra part to offset the rear shocks but it is not manufactured anymore.  The last resort for me is to replace the shocks or seat.  I would rather lower back and front fork.  Any suggestions?  I am 5 ft 2 in.  I didn't start riding until my husband told me to "get my own,"  that was when I was in my 40's.  Now retired and still want to ride.

IF you have a V65, you should immediately replace a stock fork brace
They are known for cracking..
I have heard of people using the stainless ones off of e-bay and have never heard anyone bad mouth them, but no, I have never used one.

You can, BUT, remember that those nuts are under pressure from the springs underneath and will pop out with some force.
ALSO, I believe the new springs require less fluid and different spacers, SO, you may have to suck some fluid out.
