Where to find replacement steering bearings

Hey guys,
I disassembled the '84 spree last weekend and found that the top steering bearing on the front fork is cracked. It's not broken but I need to get both the top and bottom replaced asap. I am having a tough time finding the right part for the entire bearing mechanisms. It's probably right in front of my face in the service manual. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

I have a few hundred bearings that I'm not using, how many do you need?

Hey Otto-man, thanks for your reply. I ordered the parts I *think* I need from that link. However, getting into this thing I’m finding some idiosyncrasies that may need to be addressed down the road. I’ll keep your info.

While I’m here, what kind of tires and tubes would you recommend for a stock spree?

I use Kenda 2.50x10 tires from J&PCycles. They're the cheapest I can find. Less than $20 each tax included and shipping is free if you order more than $39. They have a lot of good stuff!
Those bearings can get lost pretty easy. If you lose any, I can send you some. 26 in the bottom race and 26 in the top. Good luck.

honda used the same cups from express to the sa50 dio. so caged sa50 steering neck/fork bearings will replace loose bearings from express to gyro to spree to aero to all 2 stroke elites
