I installed one in my 550XP, I Drilled and tapped the cylinder head below the thermostat housing. Remove the housing and themostat before drilling lol. I'm pretty certain the 550 and 850 have basically the same thermostat setup.
I don't think I have a pic of the temp sensor install handy, but I can snap one if ya really wanna see it
