There are a number of issues to consider as to if you do or do not want to attach exhibits to complaints. I generally do not unless there is a good reason to do so.

Check the California Rules of Court to determine if there is a page limit for complaints.

Depending on the type of claim, exhibits are usually not part of a complaint. You are only pleading/setting forth your causes of action. You may be wise to retain legal counsel to represent you or to help you write the Complaint. If it is defective, the defendant(s) can file a demurrer, judgment on the pleadings, etc.

Exhibits are usually only attached to a complaint when there is an action for breach of written contract, and the party pleading breach does not want to set forth all of the material terms, verbatim.
