Well I had a disappointing interaction with the local bearing house. I walked in with the bearing code and samples of an undamaged bearing and seal, all I got was slack jaws and erroneous questions. They have the samples I left them with but no call back. I actually specced them online, took all of 15 minutes and I'm a carpenter!
Hopefully I'll find out by tomorrow, otherwise I'm going online...

Oh man, that's when you talk to specialists. Should I come to my garage this week I will take a bearing and a seal and visit the local SKF dealer. I know I can get everything there except the bushings. It seems no one can supply those. They are the problem as they are made from soft non-hardened steel...

Ok, they have come in at the shop. I'll grab them tonight and have a look.

Was at the local bearing shop today. Man what a bunch of unmotivated, laszy bastards.

Will try another shop which is 30mls away in the next few days.

Update:
Bearings that were ordered were wrong (they got a HK2016 instead of a HN2016), seals were also wrong. I returned them and was told “they must be a Gasgas OEM part” which surely can't be true.
Anyway, I have the bearing code HN2016, does appear on SKFs catalog so I'll be ringing my nearest SKF dealer tomorrow. The seals I have a good lead on also (buddy of mine is a product engineer, does this stuff all day long).

Cliff notes;
Don't value your local bearing guy unless you're 100% sure he knows his stuff because to me it seems like they gave up 5 minutes into searching and even with a sample in hand tried to sell me a different bearing.

Further update:
HN2016s do exist but are a protected product for some reason, SKF guy can't order them.

Koyo make them but the only place I could find that stocked them wanted 20 euros each!
I did find seals by Chicago Rawhide (now SKF) but since I couldn't get the bearings haven't bothered chasing them up.
I've just ordered Gasgas OEM kit for both rocker and dogbone. $200aud delivered.

I TRIED!

Same here, HN2016 are not available from SKF, the price is 16 Euros though.

Was at three shops now. The bearings can be ordered from Koyo, also 17 bucks per piece.
One of the biggest bearin companies, Nadella has them and they are called DL2016. Something around 14 Euros per unit.

I could also order the seals via SKF but not with a metal outer ring, just plastic but I guess it would not make a difference.

I will stay with AllBalls as I am not going to spend 170 bucks for 10 bearings and 8 Euros for a friggin' seal.
