Then you take the M56 onwards and eastwards from Yakutsk to Magadan via Ust Nera. ... which is a maintained gravel road.

If you read the assorted ride reports to Magadan from RTWDoug and from Oisin, you will note thats the route they took (and which was more sensible on their larger, heavier bikes.) Search for them for more detail.
Hey, thanks! I briefly spoke with Doug in Daytona 2 years ago (?) when he was riding around on his Sporty before shipping it out. Read his report before, will pick up on it again. Thanks, man.
