    Anyone have the sizes of these? ID + OD + Length?

    I'm thinking of getting these elsewhere rather than ordering from Honda as it has worked out much cheaper for me in the past (for GSXRs at least).

    Currently, these total €148 inc delivery from CMS - about £130.

    I'm yet to remove them so might up date this if I measure them and do a price comparison.

    These are being removed to shot-blast and polish the swing arm - yes, I'm a shiny shiny bling tart! :p

    Thanks Bazzer.

    I tried them but they don't have them all, particularly 91071-MCJ-003.

    But I have found the replacements -

    Swing Arm - Main Shaft

    91053-MCJ-003 (Original KOYO 6905 25x42x9 mm)
    91053-MCJ-751 (? 32x42x20 mm)
    91071-MCJ-003 (Original NTN 7E-HVS 32x42x37 mm)

    A German trader on eBay has a swing arm kit (including dust seals) - all Japanese made apparently - for about £58.50 inc P&P.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tourmax-Schwingenlager-Reparatursatz-SAO-121/283349447245
    or
    https://ebay.us/oT4BkT
    or
    Search Tourmax Schwingenlager Reparatursatz SAO-121

    Swing Arm - Shock Mount

    91071-KV3-005 (KOYO BHM1725 - 17x24x25 mm)

    From 123Bearing UK Company (not including dust seals) - for about £13.50 inc P&P.

    https://www.123bearing.co.uk/bearing-BHM1725-KOYO.php

    So that's about £72 inc P&P to replace; about half price compared to genuine Honda.

    No surprise in the Honda price, when you consider they want to charge more for their caliper stretch bolts than it costs to get titanium ones

    For the 91071-KV3-005 (KOYO BHM1725 - 17x24x25 mm)

    I bought this from eBay as well - https://ebay.us/O7ph44 - for about £5.62 inc P&P. It is IKO rather than KOYO, but should be fine.

    BTW. If anyone wants to remove these swingarm bearings. I found the largest bearing needed a fair amount of heat. Not the small amount of heat advised around on the interweb.

    I know it’s an old thread but I wanted to add something in case anyone finds this searching for help with bearings. Brooks Barn sell the Tourmax kit for under £60 posted. When I priced up the parts separately it came to nearly £150 from Honda, which unsurprisingly put me off getting my swingarm powder coated, now I can get it in black so it’ll match the frame. Hope this helps someone.
