Stupid question of the day

So, I understand that my stock exhaust system has this weird goats belly thing. I know that is it basically under the center stand. What I am wondering is if I get an aftermarket exhaust will this goat's belly be eliminated or do I still need to de-goat it?

Aftermarket pipes bolt directly to the engine and will eliminate the goats belly.

They should have a bracket that comes with them for the center stand.
