Hi.. was given one of these recently.. a bit rough and missing parts
I need the rear axle bearings... no seals so were absolutely shot !!.. pricing from Honda was around $50 for the pair.
Is there a cheaper bearing that fits these mowers ?
Ken..

You can try and scavenge bearings off a dumped el cheapo mower and see if you can make them fit.
That's how I repaired the rear wheel of an old SupaSwift of mine by using a wheel bearing off a Sanli base I picked up on the side of the road.


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

I believe most Honda's use 1/2" bearings - dunno if you need two or four but plenty of good options on ebay or even via your local bearings seller (most decent sized cities will have one):
1/2" bearings on Ebay

Is laughable how much the big brands want for their 'genuine' parts, I remember when a friend of mine went to a Yamaha dealership for a single plastic pushclip that had come out from his motorbike's fairing - they wanted $12 or so for it and he almost had a seizure on the spot. Suffice to say the bike had to struggle on without said pushpin.

Sorry guys.. this relates to the self propel type Honda.. the rear axle in mounted in two flanged bearings staked into brackets that give the height adjustment.... the rear wheels themselves dont have bearings, but the front have two of the 1/2 inch ones either side.

Yeah I know the bearings, replaced a few myself. If you have the old ones a bearing shop may be able to size them up, but flanged bearings aren't real common. original part number is 91054-VA4-800

The bearing is 15mm x 35mm x 14mm. It is the flange part that going to be the problem. The closest I have have found is a VXB F6202-2RS bearing but it is only 11mm wide. Maybe able to make up the difference with spacers.

Also it is important to note the flange width of the F6202-2RS which is 2.75mm. The flange diameter is 37.75mm.

I personally wouldn't bother replacing the bearings in one of those SP's, I would replace the whole body if I could find something suitable

I would it all depends on current body condition and if the F6202-2RS will work or not.

But where you can get 10 of the bearings fairly low cost even for an Australian.

Hi AVB,
Bodies are usually not too bad, it is just they are too heavy to push once the SP fails and that is not a case of it might happen but when it will. Honda build fantastic motors but the self propelled mowers leave a lot to be desired

Norm, The last Honda mower to come into my shop had a plastic composite body. It was busted pretty bad after the customer hit a brick. But normally I just don't see them here for some reason.

I just did the research on the above bearing. I however will probably never need one myself unless it for some other brand mower.

Hi AVB,
Only plastic Honda I have heard of was on Ebay some years ago and I think that body was busted up. It sold quickly, obviously somebody wanted the motor

I don't think they would be a big seller over there if what I seen on this forums about hitting rocks many times. The one was a HRX217 model. They advertise it to have a rust proof deck. lol
