Assuming the 450 is the same as the 426:
basically, cut off the tube (or spacer) that the footpeg mounting pin goes through and put it on the other side of the footpeg and reassemble. Put the LH spring on the RH side and the RH side spring on the left.
There is no need to weld the spacer back onto the peg, it cant go anywhere when the pin is installed.
If you want to do it perfectly, you can make a spacer the exact right length instead of reusing the spacer you cut off. When you cut the spacer off and reuse the bit you cut off, you loose the width of the hacksaw cut, which isnt a big issue.

Part of the height issue requires peg consideration, and the other needs handlebar thinking. I did not want to use ultra high handlebar spacers, which are abailable. Instead, I went to a set of KX high bars from Renthall. They have the highest rise I have seen, and combined with the pegs, gives me a very comfortable stand p position.

I also use homemade bare risers to raise the bar app 1 inch and move it another 1 inch forward. The only draw back with this set up is it doesn't leave much slack on the control cables. But the position is ok for a tall rider. It's all about personnal preferences.
