Are oversize Main bearings available?

I can only find 1/100mm oversizes mentioned, but I need 1/2mm.

Check the cost of a regrind - it might very well be only slightly more expensive to find a complete engine.

Edt: Just spotted your location. Motorworks will sell you a good engine for around £450. Check their website.

You wont get oversize bearing shells and don't grind a K100 crank they have chrome journals.

Dear Dai,

Thank you for your kind reply.

I don't actually need an engine.  I have acquired these boxes of parts, and putting them back together will keep me out of mischief.

Thomas.
