As far as I know (correct me if wrong) but you cant just replace one section of a crank case, they are made as a pair (line bored for the bearings) and made to match. just like the cam bearing caps are line bored (cant buy the caps separately)..

luck

Or even the "oil cooled" forum as the Katana's are basically GSXR engines. To OP, why post this in "oil and lubrication" forum?
