didnt have to cutt mine either, shouldnt be any need to cutt the pipe, all i believe is its poor fitment. Im guessing the ones that are sticking out are not fitted properley due to removing the OEM exhaust, the gasket has broken, been moved or damaged and thus fitting the new slip on it cannot get into the right position due to this matter or bad gasket.
So make sure you go and buy a new gasket for the mid pipe, refit the slip on and bobs your uncle it will fit perfectly.. No sticking out.
and the only way to be cutting if you did is by the mid pipe joining area, not via the rear cap. As i have had the rear cap off previously and you wont be doing any shortening that way except causing more work.
Here are some pics of OEM and the rs5 yoshi, i dont see the diff to be honest.
