Can someone tell me what bearing sizes I need for:
Ultegra BB-6500 octalink
Ultegra 8-speed hubs, front and rear
Or a link where I can find that info.

The Ultegra Octalink bottom bracket is unservicable as it is a sealed unit. The only way I can see to get inside one is with a hacksaw or can opener. :)
The front hub uses 3/16" bearing balls, 10 balls per side.
The rear hub requires 1/4' bearing balls, 9 per side.
