Well the best options for exhaust would be subject to what your preference is on appearance and sound. There are quite a few exhaust threads if you do a search, American Sport Bike even did a very extensive comparison that can easily be found. Tail light and license plate can be found in the same way. As for front blinkers most people that delete mirrors will transfer the blinker into the outer running lights that are located in the headlight.

American Sport Bike went out of business last year.
The report is here: http://www.sterlingidea.com/images/buell/XB_Exhaus t_Shootout_Test_Report_RevB.pdf
I have the audio files saved also: 17.1 MB file if needed.

The exhaust that I ended up going with is the APH Engineering one which actually wasnt a part of that test. In my personal opinion I thought that it looked the best on this bike. They are built to order and you can get just a slip on or a full system. They dont come with a silencer baffle but they can be requested at the time of order. My slip on came out to $610 shipped to CA.

Max, if you're still in Houston, Robert Hall of XBLights fame is 200 miles north in the Dallas area.
Best taillight/rear signal made.
For front signals, cut and splice the turn signal wires to the front marker lights, that's how mine have been since 2008 or 2009.
3 main exhaust makers are Alan Hawkes(APH), Dean Adams (D A Designs)and Kevin Drum(Drummer).
All 3 make top-notch systems and slip-ons.
I have Drummers on my 1125R and 1190RS CE.
Tail tidy, I made my own but there are several kits available, IIRC Precision Engineering makes one of the nicer ones.
