If you buy a complete 1.1/2" system then I would expect it can be ordered with any necessary brackets.
Not sure if 1 1/2" or 1 5/8" is the way to go.
I know 1.1/2" systems are available, I'm not sure how easy it is to get 1.5/8" though (I'm not sure there is any benefit in using 1.5/8" pipes anyway?)
How about brands? Any exaust brand better than others? I would love to stay away from Chinese/Taiwanese stuff and stick to british or USA made as the quality will be better. I have heard the name Toga before and wonder if they make a decent system.
Yes Toga is good quality, although I'm not sure if they do a 1.1/2" system or not?
To those who have done the conversion on an MKIII 850, what about those sherical mounts and exaust nuts?
It is possible to get *Unbalanced* pipes to fit the MkIII seatings so there may be no reason to change the head fittings at all (I know they exist because I have a pair).
The exaust nuts on the 850 look shorter than the older 750 type, and how do I work around that? Do I buy the shorter 750 type once the older exaust system is put on?
I don't think you need to change the exhaust nuts in order to fit the earlier flanged pipes (even the earlier balanced systems on 850 MkI/II had flanged pipes with the same nuts used on MkIII), what you need to change are the internal parts, the MkIII seating and retaining collets need to be changed for the earlier 850 MkI/II 063990 retaining collets (those collets do not appear to be used with the 'long' nuts used on 750s) and 063995 sealing washers.
I know RGM Motors http://www.rgmmotors.co.uk/
sells a selection of big bore 2:1 and 2:2 (including chrome/black chrome peashooter) systems although their web catalogue does not really show many good photos unfortunately!
Here is one at least of their RGM 2:1 short megga = http://www.rgmmotors.co.uk/images/full/full_471a.jpg
I think they will send you some better photos if you ask?
