You can look at the for sale sign on this website, craigslist or eBay. Beware of eBay though as I saw pictures of a guy buying cheap links and one of them snapping while he was riding, almost killed him. Get OEM, not "almost like".

If you can't find it on the places mentioned go with a OEM parts website.

Install isn't that hard but it's a lot easier with people helping you or the right tools. You need to get the weight off the rear to get the stock dogbone links off. After that get weight off the front of the bike (triple tree stand would work) and measure and raise the triple tree up. After that you can setup your suspension as well.

Depends on how it was lowered. If the forks were pulled through the triples and the rear lowered by only lowering links/plates, then replacing those parts with OEM and pushing the fork tubes back down in the triples should do the trick. If there were any lowering done internally, those parts would need to be restored to proper setup.
