Can anyone confirm or deny if the rollers are in fact the same thing as the follower bearings? Thanks
The cam follower roller bearings on the rockers are indeed the ones you need to do.

Why the camchain? I got one to go in at 50K km when doing my follower bearings, as some bikes do wear them out, but it seems the LC4 one is a pretty durable part as the old one had no discernable wear, that replacement one had no wear 45K km later either.

I would put in new cam bearings too as they are common sizes & quite cheap, also rebuild the water pump. Then you should be set for another 40K km of fun at least.
