Equal length no-goat exhaust

Found a shop ~3 minutes away from my house that'll bend pipe for me. I'm going to eliminate the goat, and lengthen the shorter pipe with two 90s, to pop it out the other side with the longer pipe. Pipe at the scrap yard is .50 a lb, I paid five bucks for a ten foot section. Got two 8" baffles to pass inspection.

Only concern is fitting one pipe above/below the other on the same side.

I'm excited!!

You shouldn't have any issues with the fitment.
Many have done the same thing & there's aftermarket setups the same way.

The only thing I can think of is you might lose the center stand if you don't plan ahead.

After I inspect it. Need some sort of baffle or muffler to pass inspection. I thought stock pipes were 1 3/4 I'd?
