You need to remove, use Plastigauge to measure, then order the correct size bearing from Honda.

plastigauge is the ****.... it's like Playdoh that you put between the parts, then torque it down, then remove the bolts, and the plastigauge is now flattened, and you have this scale thing that tells you depending on how wide the plastigauge got sqeezed out, what the clearance is get it??

Dunno, I highly doubt Part Source sells plastigauge, go to a machine supply shop.
