    It varies based upon your application. Wear on the crankshaft/ etc will vary depending on engine. Plastigauge the clearances and choose the appropriate bearing from there. Honda has bearings color coded for clearance ranges.

    No problem, just be sure to use OEM Honda bearings, at least that's what I'd recommend.
