Man this is frustrating. This big bearing only has ~20,000 miles on it. AAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHH!
If you see or hear of anyone around on a 1150 it's worth the ask as a lot of folk carry one as a spare when they travel.
(Heat will help break the lock nuts and if you do find a spare make sure you get the shimming right as I have known a new one to fail after only 5,000km with incorrect shimming)
