So is there anywhere that stocks olympic plates that weight less than 1.25KG? With these as the smallest plates, I can only make 2.5KG (5.5lb) weight jumps. Not good, really... thanks for any help.

When I was micro-loading I just bought a few pairs of these, they weigh 1lb each

Your local fitness store might sell them, mine does. If not, you can get them here.

I do not have a local fitness store, in fact I doubt that much stores sell olympic weights in Britian at all. :(
And all your links are to American sites, I am British...

I will give ebay a look, but we don't have walmart here.
