    i checked with both manufactures , they only make the ones for no saddle bags. they do make the rear section of the upswept tail pipes , just like an extension pipe. i wonder if i add them to the back part of drag pipes and connect them with chrome clamps to make them come back past the saddle bags. any one think that would work?

    Sure thing, the parts are not too expensive I would use some anti sieze or high temp silicone to seal the joints
