Where can one get a set of main bearings for the CX or is there an alternative part one can use?
Western Hills Honda.google them.
i like others are assumning...you mean big end bearings[or shells]
trev,if you do as shep asked....update your signiture and profile.include your bikes details and where you live.someone might be able to then point you in the right direction,local to where you liveNope, the 2 main crank bearings, I have the conrod bearing shells, that was easy enough to get.
I'm replacing everything as the engine is completely in pieces so every seal and bearing is being replaced, from the engine to the frame. Bike is 30 years old now, 78 000km and the stator and CDI are shot so, have replaced with the GL stator and Ignitech ECU. Bike should be good for another 30 years.
Just trying to see if there is an off the shelf car part I can use, and old mechanic said there are guys who machine out the casing and replace with roller bearings but I want to avoid that, want to keep the bike stock standard with all original parts from the OEM.

Ye I took my bearing in and Honda said it's shot, they know it well, took one look and said CX500...Black colour code...so now the hunt is on all over the world...
These say they have one so may be able to get two,
