Measure to be safe. Not all ACL halves are the same thickness, you may have to swap them around to get the clearances right.

Figure Honda are the safe choice because you can order what you need but there going to cost more. ACL's are cheaper but you may have to put some time in to get the clearances right.

Yep, swap halves around untill you get it right. Worst case is you have to buy 2 or 3 sets to get it right.

Bearings don't come with plasti-guage on them you have to buy that seperatly.

no i kno that. But wat im sayin is when u put the strip of plasti gauge on thecrank then the half of the bearing then the girdle, and its out of spec do u change the half thats on the strip of plast gauge or the half of bearing thats on the block?

If you have a micromiter you can just measure the thickness of the bearings to find the right ones. Useing plastiguage it could be either one.

Look at the packageing, it gives you the measurements. I want to say green though.

the standard size acl's will work unless the motor has spun a bearing or detonated in the past...
They should be measured anyway, right? I have a set of King bearings that are labeled "STD"... I'm assuming those are green. All of the bearings in my motor looked pretty damn good for a used motor.

Measure the old ones, see how they are. If there good enough there's nothing wrong with reuseing them. If it's on the "experimental" D15B2 then why not to keep the cost down?

Because I bought an FJT superkit, and have all the bearings already ;)

Well, sorta, he sent the wrong rod bearings.

That makes sense also, could alwasys hold onto the bearings and see what happens down the road. Worst case is the motor holds together and you don't need the bearings. In that case you could always sell the bearings.
