Not Really a Car, but Maybe Someone Has a Clue

So I have a 2009 Qlink Frontrunner 700. During the winter, I was out riding and started hearing a noise coming from the rear differential area, then my buddy said he saw sparks coming from that area. I kept riding and eventually, there was a loud pop and I lost my rear wheel drive. Since then, I've taken apart the rear end and have the differential apart with the problem found. I'm just curious if anyone here has any insight on where to get parts and what part I may need. I know at least I'm going to need a new bearing. Here's some pics:

This pic shows where the drive shaft would connect to but with the final drive pinion gear bearing house removed:

This is with the final drive pinion gear removed:

Pull out your diff and inspect each tooth first. The bearings look like simple ball bearings that slide in the components behind your helical gears.
