The exup is part of the header itself and is a cast iron chunk. Probably weighs 8 #. I decided to keep it on advice of ivans performance that sold me the jet kit and pods.
Re the bags, I might have to dress them up slightly. I have always wanted to try something anodized and there is a shop nearby...right now the focus is getting it rideable and then worry about cosmetics later
Thanks for the props
