Same here.

Magnums are one of the largest.

Most of the Italians are smallish.

Now for the shock questions.

You will be fighting the center stand with longer shocks. The rear tire may not clear the ground if too long. Drive chain geometry will change a little, meaning the chain will most likely need tightened and you will need to check tension while seated on ped. A larger diameter (if theres room) shock would help while fore going the previously mentioned issues.
