SP 1 and SP 2 exhaust system differences

Hi guys, i'm new to this forum thing! Any help appreciated! I have purchaced a VTR SP1, (Australia), It has Yoshi tali pipes on it! But to me they don't appear to fit quite right. From the rear, the left pipe sits an extra 1-1.5 inches further out from the bike. Could it be that this system is for an SP2. What were the differences between the 2 exhaust systems. cheers

A couple of photos showing the differences between SP1 and SP2 OEM exhaust systems and exhaust ports.

SP1 of the left, SP2 on the right.

This is what happens when you use SP2 mids on an SP1. If you look at the picture, the midpipe on the right of the picture does not fit properly. With a but of cutting and grinding of the midpipe, you can bring it in a bit closer, but it will never be perfect. The midpipe on the left of the picture fits just fine.
