Talking new vstar custom 1100 owner

Hey all. Just sold my Virago 535 and upgraded to a 2002 Vstar custom 1100. I am loving it! I can finally pass cars with confidence now It needs a new back tire and some brake work. And it's missing rear turn signals. I've been looking into the integrated rear brake light and turn signal combo. Would that be a good route to go? Also, it has cobra drag pipes on it and I cant lean very much if at all into right hand turns without the bottom pipe scraping a bit. I assume the previous owner lowered the spring all the way. Is it easy to adjust the height back up a bit? Sorry if all these q's are in the wrong section it wouldn't let me post in any other forums. Thanks everyone and i look forward to cruising the forums in search of knowledge of my new baby.

Found out previous owner installed a lowering link. Looks like I'll be taking it easy in the rights from here on out. As far as the tail light unit goes are they fairly plug and play?
