Actually, during the beginning of the '07 model year, the material for the air box covers was changed to steel. Some of the '07 bikes were built with aluminum covers until those were all used up. So if you buy an '07 bike that was built this calendar year, it will probably have a steel airbox cover and you can use your magnetic tank bag.
That's good news isn't it?

If by chance yours is aluminum and not magnetic, try placing magnets on the underside of the airbox where the magnets on your tank bag would rest. The magnetic fields between both magnets should be strong enough to hold.
