You can certainly use the 750 stuff.....I wouldn't be suprised if the other two are the same, but I haven't had experience of those.

All Balls Racing has a lookup tool that shows what bearings you will need.
https://www.allballsracing.com/index.php/forkconversion

The steering stops that prevent you from turning too far are different on the T500 & GT-series bikes.
You’ll need to make new stops & weld them to the frame.

My T500 cafe build has a GT500 triple tree & will have GS-series fork tube assemblies.
The project is proceeding slowly & I plan on designing the stop in the next few weeks.

The T500 triple tree uses ball bearings on the steering stem. The tapered roller bearings listed in the All Balls guide are a little longer (in the axial direction). This lowers the bottom triple tree a few mm. Be sure to take this into account when positioning the new steering stop.
