Swapping '05 Bonnie silencers for '12 Thruxton silencers

I ride a 2005 Bonneville (standard model, not the T100). It currently has the stock exhaust on it, and I don't love the look of it. I found some cheap Thruxton silencers on craigslist and was hoping to just swap them out. I haven't bought them yet.

Can this be done without having to re-jet? Will the 2012 Thruxton silencers fit on my 2005 Bonneville without too much modification? Triumphs built after 2008 appear to have a fatter exhaust pipe, so I don't know if it will clamp on properly. I can't find documentation on this particular aspect of the bike, so any input would be appreciated!
