Please ease my mind
About rod knock. Im still hunting for the right bike and attempting to sell my F6B. While I was poking around ye olde interwebs I ran across a couple of comments saying something along the lines of "a vstar's engine is only good for 40,000 miles, then it WILL develop a rod knock and be trash," and "i was at the yamakawsukinda dealer and they had 20 vstars in the back with rod knock problems."
Now, anyone can go onto a forum and spout whatever drivel they want to and I know this. I also know certain engines can be susceptible to a common given malady and that most, not all, engines can last a long time with proper use and care.
Is there any truth in this claim that v star engines are prone to rod knock? At any mileage? Obviously if someone is revving the holy life out of an engine from day one it is not going to live a full and happy life but is this a thing to be wary of?
