Default Honda and Aftermarket bearing thickness color chart

I have over the years compiled a list of bearing thicknesses. Do not take this as gospel because I often wonder if the spec sheets from manufactures is accurate. I don't even know what tolerances the bearings are when they just say max thickness and don't give you a range. You also have to take into consideration the usage of the bearings. You can't just drop in a race bearing in a daily driver. I added to the chart when I went searching for a good green/yellow replacement rod bearing for a daily driver build. I think the clevite 77 fits that bill however I may try to contact clevite about it. I'll update this chart if I find any more info.

Main Bearing thickness by color
Blue 2.013-2.010 mm 0.0793- 0.0791
Black 2.010-2.007 mm 0.0791- 0.0790 ACL bearing 5M1957 0.0790"

Red 1.995-1.992 mm 0.0785- 0.0783 ACL Race series 5M1957HX 0.0785" Clevite MS-1804H MS-1804HX 0.078" max*

Unknown thickness -Sealed Power Main Bearing Set 7102M
*Clevite gives the same thickness for many bearings that shouldn't be the same so I don't trust there data yet
ACL have gotten .0002" thicker in there newest specs than in years past.
