Brand new bearings installed...
The only thing i did with the engine was doing a few turns by hand.

Removed the Girdle and notice the strange color... from what does it come from and is it ok?

i think they are the low spots for the oil to sit in to lube the crank main's as they spin

Thanks captain. Lol. I think he's talking about the greenish color of the bearing. Not the bearings inner oil guide.

What color was the assembly lube you used?

Title is confusing because Honda uses colored bearings for tolerances. I see you discovered you lube is the culprit but for future reference if anyone is interested other than the black coating on the race bearings. There is no color code.
In addition all ACL bearings run looser specs than OE if you Plastigage ACL STD bearings you will see they will run loose at the wider end of the tolerance specified by Honda.
A looser engine makes more power but too loose spins bearings because the tolerance gap is too wide and oil does not flow well.

Cheers
