They don't come off.

A half helmet will fit in there, if it doesn't have a visor.

If you change your exhaust, you can always do the hard bags or RK bags setup from Cycle Visions.

Have the leather covered hard plastic bags. They fit nice, will not hold a helmet of any kind but will hold a 12-pack in one and a bag of ice in the other. Latches work good. They are NOT detachable so you need to go with Easy Brackets (www.easybrackets.com) if you want to remove them.
