Talon Hub parts/service in Calif/West Coast?

Im trying to fit a new set of Excel wheels w/Talon hubs on my newly converted USD fork XR600. The rear wheel is for the XR and is fine, and the frt hub is for 2000-ish CR w/20mm axle, I need to get bearing/spacer set (assuming there is one) for 90 CR500 17mm axle size. East Coast wheels may have what I need, but they are on the East coast. I was looking for a Talon dealer in Calif/West Coast. Anybody have a clue where to go? Google wasnt my friend here. Thx

When I did the sport bike front wheel conversion on my XRL I wound up making the spacers to reduce the bearing ID to 17mm, I used a piece of stainless steel to make it.

I couldn't find a bearing with a 42 mm OD & a 17mm ID

Thanks much for that info, Im going to call them Monday. Most sites that carry Talon hubs have this statement on thier site:

"CHANGING TO A NEWER BIKE? Talon hubs have changable internal components which may allow you to keep you hub and just replace the bearings and spacers"

So....Im hoping I can get the 17mm internals?

Thanks again for posting that info
