What year is your bike?I've recently purchased my first Harley.....a vrod with transmission trouble. I've successfully removed the engine, split the cases, and diagnosed the tranny issue. Now I'd like to replace the main and rod bearings. I pulled the bearing shells out of the lower case and found the part # 24313-01k which I cant find anywhere. Have any of you had this issue? or Do any of you guys have access to a new/old part number reference?
VRSC crankshaft bearing info is stamped on the crankshaft counter weight. There should be a color code stamp starting with ALT followed by four color code stamps, e.g., ALT G RR G. The first letter after ALT is the alternator side main bearing color code, the second letter is the front rod bearing color code, the third letter is the rear rod bearing color code, and the fourth letter is the clutch side main bearing color code. What's your crankshaft stamp code?
The main bearings are available in three sizes:
B = Blue = 24411-01K,
G = Green = 24410-01K, and
R = Red = 24409-01K.
The rod bearings are available in 2 sizes:
R = Red = 24412-01K and
B = Blue = 24413-01K.
This is for all VRSC engines 2002 to present. There's also some thrust bearings for the crankshaft (24312-01K) but P/N 24313-01K is not a valid VRSC P/N.
