>í85 exhaust clamps

Does anyone have a source for exhaust clamps?

Iím fitting up a complete standard system - headers/collector/mufflers - to an í86 mono bike. Iíll need two 43mm and two 49mm clamps plus the appropriate gaskets.

Looking at the online fiche I see that the genuine bits will have me in for over $100! But Iím sick of exhaust systems that donít fit properly. I havenít had much luck with generic components from the local stores. Any ideas?

The gaskets I make from Aluminum sheet that I got from a sheetmetal shop. I think he said it was roof flashing.
It cost me just about $5.00 for a foot square piece, finally used it up last year. I think it was .030" thick.
The clamps I source from a chopper shop. clamps are clamps, as long as they're not Chicom garbage.
