Help with exhaust

Ok all so i got a used scorpion slip on from a guy for free because it was damaged. I choped it but after i went to put it on it looks like it went to a Banana seat f4i and not the split like i have. So the pipe wont meet up to the old mount its a few inches short. Should I just buy a piece of metal to use as a bracket to get it up to the old mount? Or should i try to chop the pipe and make it like an r6 shorty, or get a new pipe made to bring it up to the mount, Attached below is a pic of what it looks like right now.

yeah, the guy had it on his before, the mid pipe and bends fit well its just not high enough. I didnt play with it a whole lot last night because it was dark, my only other guess is to see what happens if i flip the mid pip around

That could be it right there, a good exhaust shop could also bend the mid so it'll work for ya.

I would just look for a mid pipe on ebay that fits a split seat application. You don't want to end up with some jacked-up looking pipe...

And make sure it has a bung for the '02 sensor already in it if you currently have one. Modifying a mid pipe can be the suck and cost you just as much as if you just bought one specific to your bike...

Rotate the midpipe, and fab an exhaust hanger strap.

this is probably your best solution

Is the pipe just hangling in the wind right now?

Just duct tape some zip ties on there and call it good.
