Crankshaft rebuild kit
Where is the best place to get a decent quality crankshaft rebuild kit? If I check out my rods and find that I need to replace them, I will probably just try to find a complete kit with all the bearings. Otherwise I will just order the bearings I need and reuse the good rods. I have two cranks to salvage rods off of, so I may actually have a good set of three!

Are you doing your own crank rebuild?

If you search the GH Polaris site for crank bearings I think you'll find your answer. I think it was Beerdart and a few others had found direct replacement bearings in the McMaster Carr catalog. I believe there were some minor differences, something about pinned and non-pinned bearings but it didn't really matter in terms of functionality.
Anyway, that should be the info you need for a crank rebuild, at least as far as the bearings go. If your rods are shot hmmm, I dunno on that one.

I thought that I had seen a complete kit somewhere that included all the bearings, rods, seals, and was cheaper than buying individual parts.....I may have just been dreaming though...

The research I've been doing for my Kawi 750 to 800 SXR project has led me to the belief that LA Sleeve is marketing Pro-X crank kits, which are made by ART, the same company that makes the OEM and Sudco pistons and such. I should find out next week if their rods really are OEM to Kawi.
Other sources for Pro-X is Hot Products.
No idea if they made the OEM Polaris stuff....
