Good question!
Looks like it would be a very tight fit, but you could possibly retro-fit a .21 header - if you want to run the risk of destroying it in the process!

Is their some sort of standard .21 header? Or are their all different sizes?

There might be some slight variations from engine to engine, I know that a Novarossi header on a Picco engine requires a different gasket, so you wont find out until you have it there with you.
I would advise you to get the cheapest header for what you need, and if it hits the pullstart, then just slowly take your time and bend the header to where you need it to be, or you could tool your own pipe if you have the resources.

yes, that will work, just get it into the right position with the pipe and it should work.
