A shop can work on a modded bike done by the owner without issue correct? They just cannot do the mods as I understand it.

The issue isn't work. It's modifying the existing emissions equipment. That means no dyno tunes, no carb changes, no muffler swaps, etc. Of course they can change tires, adjust valves and so on.

With the new law in place, has anyone experienced any issues with aftermarket exhausts? I just got a 2018 Yamaha XSR 700 and the stock exhaust sounds terrible and was thinking of trying to find a place to buy it from and install myself. Not sure how strict cops are these days.

Even some online retailers won't ship non compliant to CA exhaust systems. Either order one from a NV shop and pick up, or check out 58cycle.com. They were able to ship me an exhaust for my FJ no problem installed myself and had my ECU flashed for the new full system.
