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.

Watch me remove carburetors on VTR 1000F SuperHawk (Give me a break, I am doing it for the first time) =) Just found this video I took couple of years ago. Figured I'll upload it for you guys who want to see me taking it apart. Enjoy.
