I took apart a GL500 and CX500 driveshaft at the u joint, and combined them together. To do this, I had to grind down all of the little punches the factory put in there to retain the bearing cups. How critical is it that I retain these cups somehow? I could use a quick spot of weld to keep them in place, but that means if I ever need to service them I'll have to sacrifice the shaft and make a new one from scratch, vs simply pushing the cups out with an arbor press. There's no way that I can see to fit a circlip... unless there's a way I can buy an aftermarket rebuild kit that includes cups with retaining circlips? Prob not from Honda, but aftermarket somewhere? Any info on this would be really useful.
