Rod knocking? lmao fml....
So now that I have my vstar 1100 running perfectly and nice and quiet, i can now hear a very subtle quiet knocking coming from the engine. Doesn't happen all the time, only during certain rpms. Like when cruising in third gear in town, at a certain speed/rpm, i'll start to hear the very faint noise of knocking. Also, not a knocking from lugging the engine.
Sooooo is it a rod knocking? And if it is a rod knocking, would it only happen during certain rpms? Like i said, it comes and goes, and i only hear it because i'm ocd with my bike and how it sounds lol. When it happens, if i keep it at the same rpm, it will continue knocking. If i increase/decrease the throttle even by a little bit, it goes away.
