I welded a piece of 2" pipe to the end of the pepper pot piping - it wasn't exactly the same, but pretty close.  (I had cut the threaded end off the muffler.)   I then just used 2" NPT pipe and fittings from there.  It gets hot, but not hot enough to burn the zinc coating off the pipe or fittings.

I found some 2 3/8 ID flex pipe. The thought of not having a flexable joint scares me, especialy as much as they vibrate.

To quote the Lister manual:
If a longer exhaust pipe than our standard bend must be fitted, this should at no point slope upwards from the engine exhaust port unless a groung silencer is fitted close to the engine, or a suitable ground tap is fitted at the bottom of the pipe line, which tap should be opened before the engine is started up each time, otherwise moisture due to condensation in the cool pipe will drain back into the cylinder head and cause damage.

Also, from personal experience, soot will build up in a vertical pipe and eventually catch fire

I have that covered. I am exhausting into a burried 30 gallon drum and then up. The drum will be the lowest point.

The classic solution.
I have mine going into a buried concrete chamber with about 10 metres of 6-inch stainless steel flu pipe running from the side of the chamber underground and exiting amongst a small grove of bushes. They just looooove the extra CO2.
And, it is very quiet.

I used a stainless bellows to prevent pipe-strain between the exhaust piping and the cylinder head. It does not leak.

I found suitable item at kragen for about 20 bucks.
