Fork bushings and clips

Hi, just found this forum looking for parts.
My son in law has a 86 vn750. The fork seals were leaking so I’m helping him change the seals and caps out. My question:
The ones I’ve changed out, I bought a kit from All Balls that had new bushings, seats, clips etc. I can’t even find a bushing on line for these forks, let alone the new clips etc. all I can find are the seals/caps.
Would anyone know where I can get a kit with all the normal wear items at?

When I did mine, seals and oil is all I put in them. There was no sign of wear on my bushings, and the clips are basically just wire so as long as they're not rusted or bent out of shape, should be ok. I even re-used the dust wipers, but it is an '03 and pretty clean. The oil was putrid and probably had moisture in it too.

If you've checked the usual parts websites and didn't see new bushings, used or new from ebay is probably all that's left.

There are some bushings at the top of this search link below, but make sure you're getting the correct ones, there are some listed that aren't compatible to the 750. The complete sets with clips farther down in the search don't fit the 750.

All years of the VN700-750 will be the same. You may already know this, but make sure to get the split in the bushings aligned correctly. Oil is full at 9" from the top, if I recall. (repair manual download in my signature at the bottom of this post)
