This is what I found, for the YZF750 front end.

Yep, I actually have a bearing kit already on order and should have next week. What I was able to do is use the Kawi bearing raceways resting on the yamaha front end. Bottom is a match. On the top, the threads were a little below the neck so we made a locking nut with a collar in the middle of it. It goes between stem and bearing raceway for the Kawi to center it and threaded down lots for a good solid pull down. When the timken bearings arrive, they'll be a drop in fit to get away from the loose balls of old. I'll take pictures of the pieces next week when putting it together. Came out pretty nice.
