Contact Mark Boddy. (Username MBoddy from memory)
He was a pioneer of this.

It's been a while since I did a set but my foggy memory seems to recall the following.

The RG pipes are the wrong angle at the flange.

Cut the header about 60mm from the flange. Elongate the fixing holes as the LC studs are wider. Flip the RG flange over which gets the flange at a better angle. Trim to close up the gap and weld her up. All done.

Apparently you can cut the pipes open and clear out the noise suppression rubbish from the innards, but I've never seen inside so someone else may be able to supply further information.

I cut the header 90mm from the flange.
But at that point it is oval and so I gently squeeze it in the vice to make it round.
Mount to bike and rotate the stub until it lines up and then weld.
Gutting the pipes doesn't seem to make any difference to top end.
The slightly larger volume may give a bit extra midrange though.
I wouldn't bother gutting them for a street bike.
