    i got my rose joint/bearing from here> http://cgi.ebay.co.u...em=150694080957 if he cant help ,remove it and measure it first,then match the size on a bearing supplier,to avoid paying "motorbike"prices which can be 400%+more.outrageous! another way is matching the number on the actual bearing and then use the above route.good luck.
