You wont find a "New" pair. Several used sets can be found on e-bay and other sites.
There are articles on how to rebuild these items using different bearings, however, a used set from a lower mileage bike would suffice.

Did the timing belt idler mod on my '85 LTD - quite easy and kept cost down - works a treat. Check out this thread regarding this mod: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=10919

Just in case you don't want to do your own rebuild, partzillow has bearings 14510-371-008 if this is what you need.

I've decided to rebuild them. O'reillys had the pulleys for $20 each. Now I just need to follow the diy article on this and I should be good.
Thanks for all the offers and research.
