I'm helping a friend find 1975 Gl1000 bearings for a restoration job. I'm having trouble finding anywhere that has them in stock and that can ship to Canada or the US. Any suggestions?
The part numbers are 13215-371-003 BLUE, 13217-371-003 BROWN, 13221-371-003 BLUE, 13223-371-003 BROWN, 13324-371-003 GREEN, 13325-371-003 YELLOW,

Sorry friend, you are going to have a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOG search for almost all of those shells. They are mostly totally extinct. Main dealers will be of no help at all.
Brown shells do occasionally appear, as being the mid-size they are the most common. I will look through my list of NOS dealers and see what I can find. That may take some time so don't hold your breathe.
Put your numbers into an eBay search and you will get notification if anyone post something up. Be prepared to be be buying from different countries. A translator app is your friend!

Does it really NEED new bearings, or just replacing them because so many other engines need new bearings? Really, GL1000 bearings should be good for over 250000 miles with proper care.
