Those are connecting rod bearings. You will not find them for sale anywhere, really. Bike breakers typically don't disassemble engines to sell off the parts. Replacement engines can be found for just over $200, it's not financially viable to spend the time and money rebuilding an engine. Your best bet, if you want to keep your engine, would be to buy a spare engine and harvest it for parts.

Sometimes dreaming pays off.
On a 70's model gl1000,I found that a 1978 honda civic ring set was exactly the same specs.
The rod bearings,altho the same thickness,were 0.010' too wide....A bit of metal removal and they too fit...It was a part of checking rod clearance and pre-fit adjustments.
Rod bearings must be matched to the rod.There is a acceptable clearance tolerance they must fit in.If they don't,they are 'adjusted'.
I also found rings for the 1100.Seems to me they spec the same as a late 90's car.
I just Googled everything I could find for general information on rings and bearings.Finally ended up at the manufacture sites...with the spec listings.
I didn't match by the bike...I matched by specs.
I've never confirmed if rod bearings from a car would match the 1100....I wouldn't discount it yet.

can you get the old bearings themselves? I had to match some bearings on another bike I own because the mfg doesn't list them as replaceable but want you to buy the whole assembly for millions of dollars. I took the bearings into a local bearing dealer/warehouse (timken) and they matched them up either via the number stamped on the race or by measuring them. Cost me all of $30. Pulled the old, pressed in the new and riding it now instead of cursing. It's worth a try....

Most of the US Honda places get their parts from the same warehouse and if that place is out, check with the warehouse in Japan. There is a place in Europe that says they have the bearings in stock:

Doesn't hurt to check with them; I have purchased Euro carb parts from them for my business. Not sure if they are blowing smoke but it can't hurt. Let us know if they actually have the bearings.

Just saw here on the wanted/for sale page that MikeBen has an '81 wing for parts. Says the 1100 engine runs.
Might wqanna touch base with him and maybe get the whole engine and just swap it out?

send me a pic of what you are looking for. I have a 1100 engine sitting in my garage for the past three years also 1000 engine. Been wanting to tear them apart just to see what is in them. I have some of it torn apart.

So send me a pic of what you need and if it is on my engine I may be able to help out.--If they are not shot from just sitting.
