Mine has J 17 X MT6.00 DOT

Also, as I found with my 98 RR-W although the old bearings had standard numbers like RS2002 the dimension Honda just was not standard. This was for the big rear wheel bearing. The Honda own brand was slightly thinker (or was it thinner? Long time ago) so make sure the new bearings are the same diameter and thickness of the old ones....

do you think this wheel would fit ? coz with that bearing being bigger I'm not sure if the sprocket carrier will fit right ? will have to test fit tomorrow to make sure

i guess the wheel being slightly narrower is off an earlier model so there could be all sorts of issues with spacers and the sprocket lining up with the front sprocket... I don't know enough to say for sure

You could always measure the size of the old bearings IDxODxW , and axle Diameter and length and match them against different 5.50 Width wheel (but there are so many older and newer) and sell it, then get hold of a 929 6.00 wheel off E-bay. Partzilla have a good fitment/Parts assignment for matching
Meantime since you already have the bearings (and axle is right)this

5.5” is old technology that I’m very familiar with. The 929 was the first CBR with the 6.0” wide rear. I’m curious to see a picture of the wheel you’re trying to fit.

Also, I would suspect that it was never on the bike to begin with if the bearings were missing. Please post a picture of it. 🙏🏻
