I want cheap and have bought sets for less than $50. If the rest of the system is good then replacing the bearings is a good, but expensive, option. Sorry it is a proprietary bearing and only available at your friendly dealer.
Looks like Moto-bins have the rocker arm needle bearings for 8.50 pounds each.
The last paragraph on Anton's site there is interesting too (not relevant to my mono application, but) - "Every style can be easily upgraded one level" - /5 to 74-75, /6 to 76-84, 76-84 to 85 on.
