motor knocking

i've got a 2006 gsxr 750 and the motor is knocking everytime i rev it up... changed the cam chain and cam chain tensioner and thats not the problem, before it was just rattleing a little bit but i took it to 100 one night and the sound got louder and started knocking anyone might know what the problem is? im thinking its internal maybe a piston rod if anyone can help that would be really great :BangHead:

thanks alot

lots of em






does it go Potato, Potato, Potato?

I'd go to the store and buy some extra crunchy Jif peanut butter, then I'd get me some strawberry preserves, cause they are better than jams.
I'd build me a sammich.


the motor is still gonna need a rebuild, but I'd have a decent sammich .

Yes,
I agree with Scooter,
