1985 KLR600 Rear Swingingarm Bearings

Well well into my project of my KLR600 but when removing the swingingarm one of the needle bearings fell to pieces... Rusted and no good.

The bearing sets for these are selling for around 40 GBP! Ridiculous!!!

So my question... What are the dimensions of the said bearings... **x**x**??

Needle bearings are usually only a few GBP each so if I know the size I can surely get them cheaper than the above stated prices.

Anyone able to help?

Thanks

For anyone also wondering this they are 20x27x26mm no caged open needle bearings.

They are non standard type so cannot get them from commercial bearing suppliers, They are however in many other bikes and can find them cheaper than the Kawasaki OEM parts
