I just Dremeled off the small part of the tab that was kind of sticking out the front, and the rest was recessed in enough that it was completely covered when I did the putty work.

Aww, I can't believe I just ran across this thread. This weekend is one of the few I'm not free on a Saturday. I live up in Rolla, so hopefully I can get in on the next Missouri group ride nearby.

Yep, they are. They're the '08+ ones, which don't quite swap right onto the pre-gens, but they just needed a couple little tweaks and some washers on the brake side to keep it in the right position.

I got a cheap set of saddlebags at Wal-Mart for like $20. Those and a backpack are plenty of room for a weeks worth of groceries for me.

I checked out the pipes and didn't find anything obstructing them. Maybe the previous owner had already pulled it all out at some point. Regardless, my goal was to get the '08+ exhaust on my '06, and...
