IPF Supercharger from KPE help

I installed the IPF Supercharger kit on my 2012 Camaro v6 a little over a year and a half now. Two days ago, two rollers that the belt rolls on seized up and stopped rolling, which caused my belt to burn up and snap while I was driving home from the gas station (luckily I was only 1/2 a mile from my house).

The head unit is Vortech V-3, so I called Vortech and they said they don’t sell replacement parts and that I would have to send it in for $390.95 for it to be repaired. Plus freight of $50 each way.

I like to fix my own vehicle, and I’m not afraid to jump into a big job. It seems like such an easy fix, has anyone experienced this before? Do you know what these parts are actually called and where I can get them from?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I will post photos below

Replace the bearings inside the idler pulleys.

If you can't find what you need, I'm pretty sure Will sells a kit to convert the KPE/IPF kits over to a different pulley system

I replaced mine with the ones IPF sent and they have been through a lot, with my jackshaft setup they have a lot more load placed on them and being spun to 16,000+ RPM, no failures.
