If the latter, I would first take it to one of the service centers that can tune your rig to pass and just have them do a basic test on it to see if it passes the emissions part. If it can be tuned to pass, I would go ahead and take it in for a test. The worse that can happen is they fail it on visual inspection and you can move ahead with getting your list of parts.
I agree with Randy. Getting it puffing clean, then take it in... they didn't open the hood on mine, never even took a peek. Also, go at the end of the month when they are slammed, you might wait a little longer but they seem to be in a hurry as well and might "overlook" some of the visual stuff.

FWIW, I have a box of emmissions stuff on the shelf in the garage. If you need to bolt it all on for a visual inspection, I have most of what you will need.

By the way... awesome looking cruiser!
