CMSNL had those recently but I just checked and they no longer do.  Watch their site, David Silver Spares UK (also don't have them currently) and eBay.  If you get desperate, I can call or email some of the NOS dealers here in the US and likely find some - but after shipping from the dealer to me, shipping to Oz, an unfavorable exchange rate (currently $1 USD = $1.42 AUD) and Paypal fees, prices of parts from the US become prohibitively high.

Thank's mate for your reply. I have tried all of the sites you suggested but to no avail. I have one yellow and one green so will just keep looking for a yellow. Would you let me know if you hear anything or get a lead. Once again thank you. Killer.  Doh

So that I'm clear on what you need, you have two different connecting rod bearing sizes in your engine, one is green, one is yellow?  Or, do you have in your possesion one green and one yellow half shell?   

yellow half shells 13219-415-013

green half shells  13218-415-013


Northeast Vintage Honda shows one green shell in their NOS inventory, BTW.  They are the only searchable NOS inventory I know of, the others I need to call or email.  Sometimes it takes a few days for the smaller NOS dealers to search out parts - bigger dealers have computerized files.

Silvers has stocks of green shells.

 Any other colour? Difficult.

Green are slightly thicker shells than yellow and sit next to them on the chart. so either normal wear will allow them to fit or a linishing.

Plastigauge would tell the tale.

So, you only need one yellow half, correct?

Killer - I found two in original Honda packaging at a bike shop in Montana, thanks to my local Honda dealer (they did a nationwide search for me).

Price is $10.99 USD each, shipping to me would be around $5.00 USD, shipping to Oz should be $13.50 USD, Paypal fee to transfer money and do the currency exchange is $5.99 USD.  That totals $35.48, about $50.40 AUD (based on the exchange rate a few days back of 1:1.42).  Pretty expensive shell, but if you find you have no other option, let me know and I'll order it for you.

Please understand that the prices above are estimated, might be more or less depending on postage or exchange rates, but I think I'm pretty close.  BTW, the dealer won't ship directly to Oz, they don't do any international shipping.

The prices I listed were for just one yellow bearing half - do you want me to get two of them?  If so, the price would go up by another $10.99 USD.


Killer - I sent you a private message...
