Well, at this point your only option is a complete tear down. There is no telling what may have been chewed upon in the bottom end. Maybe it would have been possible to fish around with a magnet, turn engine upside down & flush with spray cleaner, but it isn’t reliable. Always taking a big chance when not opening up cases after a failure that left broke something in the cylinder. Guess why the cranks or crank bearings are made to slip fit, as opposed to the way Honda’s come from the factory…


Good luck,
