It may be that the damage is from the rocker blocks being too loose but I think it happens to even well spaced rockers after the miles and heat take their toll. You can sometimes get good deals on a set on ebay but most of them are being sold by breakers and are over priced. Well, maybe it's not over priced but they are expensive. 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.
Thanks Disston,

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.
