[R] Wild card characters

I have a string '982323.1' and would like to replace everything after the
'.' with a '41'. So the string should look like '982323.41'. The code I
use to do this is

sub('\.$','41',982323.1)

This works fine as long as there is only 1 digit after the decimal. If I have '982323.10', then the result of the code is '982323.141' instead of
'982323.41'

How do I fix the code to replace all characters after the decimal by 41?

Thank you
