Can't remember what they were but they were VERY standard bearings front and back. Swedish ( skf) or Japanese made bearings are the go. NSK or NTN etc. for example. Just check they are ACTUALLY made in Japan not hived off to China or Korea ( or worse Thailand or India). Having said that the Chinese make spectacularly good bearings, BUT you need to know which ones are, and I don't. Including hybrid ceramics.
Swingarm bearings prob worth a look as well, They are needles on one side so could use a regrease if OK. The other side is a PAIR of back to back common bearings, but you will prob have to buy ones with seals and remove the resultant inners. Not strictly necessary but topping them up with quality moly or aluminium grease will extend their life and keep them smooth.

Lots of reports of poor results for All Balls seals and bearings over the last couple of yeasr. They mainly source Chinese Cheap apparently.

Thanks for the update on All Balls Racing.  It's been awhile since I bought from them.  I guess things have changed.

Definitely good to know. I was also under the impression at All Balls was one of the best place to get bearings.

They do supply full reseal and bearing kits . Good if you have to get a bike up to standard to sell. But reports I have been seeing have problems with seal life and bearing quality. They need to re -source for quality, not cheapness, to re-attain their once well deserved reputation.
