It is a salvage bike i picked up as a winter project. It has very little cosmetic damage, but had a hole punched in the oil pan. I expected there to be problems with the engine, but the deal was to good to pass up. Bike only has 4000km and I know the original owner, he dropped it a slow speeds (crusher dust on a corner) it slid into a curb/ditch. Bike was dressed in bags for touring so the tip over switch did not go off and she ran dry of oil.
Since i got it i put a pan on it, and fired it up. I am pretty sure its the #3 big end, it sounds like typical rod knock (small dwarf with hammer trapped inside the case).
I will update with pics of what i find.
