Can't help you if Rapala don't supply it.
Maybe try find a replacement in your hardware...

Shot - I am about to order stainless sealed ceramic bearings from a company in USA - which in your opinion are the critical bearings to replace in the sustain 5000?

All except Pawl bushing and the handle bearings. And you don't really need Ceramic bearings in a fixed spool reel, there are no high speed bearings necessary like in a multiplier casting reel.
