    Please keep the original engine in it, if you were to change it the bike wouldn't sound the same

  • Bigboi

    you could look for a 1100 magna motor

    i feel like I just had sit down with Dan to talk about everything in life. This was a pretty awesome video. I never comment on IRbin videos, ever, but I'm also doing it for the algorithm.

    Hey Dan. I really enjoy your content and believe you are just a really down to earth person and a great guy. I love your content, motorcycles, building cars, building vans, guns, whatever it may be. I am currently finishing up my first year of college and will be moving off campus next year. So I'm looking at motorcycles for transportation. I either want to get a honda rebel 500, a newer one, or get a magna and build it in similar style to yours. I really have no idea where to start or how to achieve either option on a budget. But anyways, love your content bro. I'd love to meet you someday.

    If you’re gonna swap the engine you should totally go with the 80s magna 1100 motor it’s the same v4 but with more diSplAcemNt, if I remember correctly I think they made like over 130 hp

    I'll be real with you dude. It's been a while since I've watched your videos. There was so much to keep up with and I couldn't do it. I come back every now and again but now the Magna is around again, I'll be watching more. It's not a dig, just not a car fan really. I love the honesty and I really hope shit is going well. Much love from the UK.

    Bro i have been a follower since the beginning of this chanel i used to watch every video as it dropped. I love your content and you are such a humbke down to earth man. Im not consistent anymore but i watch when i have time. I love the chanel bro keep pluggin on.

  • MartyMart

    Keep the engine. OG vibes cause she sounds perfect

  • Alex . . .
    Alex . . .

    Dan!! Please don’t engine swap it!!! I think the sound alone is what caused me to start my own fund to buy a magna, and the drag pipes you have on there are Cobra/Jardine drag pipes that you CAN NOT find anywhere, trust me, I’ve tried. I’m in college now and I remember telling myself as a freshman in high school I’d own a Magna like yours some day that sounds just as cool.

  • bldeagle10

    If you motor swap it i think it would be dope to do a v4 from a VFR800F 6th or 7th gen

  • Clay Hammonds

    Hey dan remember that time you dropped that bike 🥴😂

    VFR 800 engine would be pretty cool. Wouldn't be that hard, and still true to it's roots. Buddy's got one for sale, complete running bike, local to you. Cheap enough bike, worth the swap. That's what I would do with a Magna, if I had the time and money. Nothing like that V4 garble, and it's injected!

  • Just(A)Theory

    Id like seeing you do more wood work stuff on side project. But hey, qhatever you do, im sure youl dan it up

  • Erki Liepkalns

    im on the fence of keeping the stock motor just fresh rebuild , and just put a Vrod motor in it and turbo it XD

  • wifelikecow

    Fuck around, find out, and throw a Goldwing motor on it.

  • Amerikai

    I'm as torn as you about the engine. A swap to a CBR engine or something more modern would make it fast as fuck boi and be unique but also feel the v4 in it has so much character and is so fitting for this bike that I can't imagine it having any other engine tbh lol

  • Josh Gillespie
    Josh Gillespie

    I'm a subscriber that hasn't seen a video in a long time. I just wanted to say, I'm not necessarily excited that you're "back to motorcycles", I'm more happy to see how much of a wizened sage you've become. I'm also really excited to see your future content, as well as watch the content I missed, I wish you the best and I'll make sure I follow more closely, rather than let the IRbin algorithm hide your videos from me. (I've literally never hit the bell icon for another channel, call me lazy if you want)

    Tbh that magna v4 sounds soooo good. Would it be unreasonable to put fuel injection on it and try to kinda "modernize" it so it's extra snappy and wont respond as badly to sitting?

    So if you do a engine swap, what are you going to do with the original engine?

  • DisturbedParadise

    This bike was the exact reason I got a manga myself. Mine is very similar but still a little different. The main thing I wanted to be similar was the exhaust. I got lucky and found an exhaust on ebay that has removable baffles. Needless to say those bitches aren't in there anymore. I also took the carbs off the bike to clean and rejet them for the new pipes and air filter. I had no previous experience doing anything like that but I did it and learned a lot. I will never sell my manga. The noise it makes at redline is insane. Also, cruising at 4k rpm and just pinning the throttle is orgasm worthy.

  • backroadbozo

    turbo'd cbr1000rr bro. do it. you won't.

  • Dustin Drnek
    Dustin Drnek

    I'd say if you do end up swapping the engine stick with a v4 of some sorts to kinda stay with the bike's roots and also it would still sound gnarly

  • Joel A

    That engine is what makes the magna a special bike. Bring it into the 21st century, fuel injection, maybe a turbo.

  • Ugly Beardo
    Ugly Beardo

    I used to come here for the Magna , feels good to see it again . Its been more than 2 years .

  • Misicsanko

    I'd keep the stock motor in it, but if you really want to swap it, dont make it unrideably(thats a new word) powerful. I think the fun factor of a lower power engine is much more important than the numbers.

    Keep it at the stock motor. I absolutely love the stock motor and has driven me to want one of my own. I constantly go back into your videos just to watch manga and hear the sounds

  • Sploofy OG

    What about a VFR motor? Still Honda, still kinda retro and unique, on the V4 platform, and fuel injected... just food for thought!

    I'll be honest since you seem to be tired of the bullshit. I stopped watching regularly when you moved a couple few years ago. You used to have fun with your content, hanging out with Jake and being stupid. Then you got all existential and I have enough doom and gloom in my world to watch someone else's. The only reason I clicked on this video was to see what's been happening with the Magna. I'm not suggesting that you change anything, I wouldn't change anything I do because some nobody told me to, but I'm just replying to the comment you made about having 1M+ subscribers with so little regular views.

    What you said at 14:00 - abso-fuckin-loutely. You can't teach someone who doesn't want to learn, but you can't stop someone from learning if they want to. Didn't honda do an 1200 V4? Slap that bitch in there.

  • crusty coyote

    Stick with a v4. V65 or maybe a vfr1200 engine. Probably take some engineering to make it work but you can do it.

    Dan I'm going to be honest, I've watched you since 2014. Whatever you post, I'll always watch. I don't care about the content, I just like your whole persona you give off. I feel like I personally know you without knowing you, witch is crazy considering I've watched you for 7 years now, but seeing you tinkering with the magna makes the "oh BILLY" vibe come out in me lmfao. Keep on keeping on brother.

    I feel so called out lol; so I'm kinda one of those people that subbed a long time ago but haven't really been a regular of the channel for a while. Thing is, in the interim I bought my first bike and have owned several since then; I'm on an '01 Vulcan 1500 right now. So I guess now rather than watch motovlogers I'm either in my garage or riding myself lol. I'm really digging the vibes though; it feels like a real refinement of what originally brought me to your channel.
