Knocking Discovery Honda VTR1000 Superhawk
This is what I discovered after pulling the rear head on my Honda VTR1000 Superhawk (Fire Storm in the UK). The engine was making a knocking sound and I checked everything else and I really didn't want it to be a bad rod bearing but in the end it was. It could have been worse and thrown itself through the crankcase so I am thankful for that.
