I put Hondabond very sparingly on that part and the crankcase half - mains journal areas - it was there from new as it was a pig to remove when I was cleaning the crankcase halves.

Others here will confirm.

I found Acetone works well but it evaporates off fast so I had to soak it.

During my crank case groundhog days I got quite profficient at removing Hondabond!
