Exhaust help please

Hi Guys,
I have '82 GL1100 which was imported to the UK some time ago and I believe it was a plain jane when it was brought over but it currently has an interstate from fairing on. It's currently got a Motad style header and silencer setup on it but the silencers are starting to rot by the hangers and need changing out.
I've seen advertised a set if GL1100i straight silencers without the headers. I'm just trying to find out if the headers are universal and I'll just be able to swap out the silencers? The other thing that I want to check is that the Motad setup has a straight equaliser pipe between the 2 sides and the straight set has a curved pipe. Will this make a difference?
Thanks for the help it's my first bike and an heirloom from my father that I want to keep running.
