I don't know about 'generic' bearing numbers but here is what you'll need from Kawasaki:
1 - 92116-1009 Lower Bearing 18.81
1 - 92047-017 Upper Bearing 22.42
1 - 92049-1162 Seal 4.26
I get my parts from ronayers.com and receive them in about 10 days from order.
You're at about the same mileage Hidalgo was when I replaced her 'lumpy' steering bearings. Don't forget to give the bearings a pre-load when reassembling them. I didn't do this and the bike never felt solid in corners or higher speeds (75+ mph) until I gave them the proper pre-load. Wheel bearings are easy to check, just give the wheel a side-to-side shake. The bearings will 'clack' if they're loose.
Hope this helps ya.
