Hepco Becker sells the racks for both low pipe and high pipe configs. You just have to order the right part number to fit your stock exhaust. And note, about 6 weeks lead time, so plan ahead .

Thanks, I'll look into that. I was thinking of doing some modding on the racks to use the stock exhaust. I'll see what H&B has to offer.

Yup- picked it up from Emerson last fall. Had some of the best riding days of my life down Vermont's RT 100 and later the blue ridge parkway that week. Have made a few mods thus far, including scrapping the gnarly paint job on the front and adding the headlight protector (for anyone interested it's a ravioli strainer and you can find it here: http://www.jr.com/copco/pe/WIO_049102/ )

Have recently added some TKC's to the black rims as well...

How'd you secure the strainer to the headlight unit?

SOLO-
Removed the front black part of the headlight assembly, then drilled 4 very small holes (top, bottom, and sides) in it. Secured the strainer piece with some very small black zip ties. Hardly noticable and extremely secure.
I've seen some other setups on my travels and this is IMHO the easiest and cheapest solution. Good luck!

Any overweight guys wearing orange plastic sandles ever give you a hard time?
