One more question, did the oil light come on? Typically when you spin a 
bearing, your oil pressure pretty much goes to zero.

I think it's just a valve making all that noise. I know trouble shooting is 
not easy by watching a 13 second video clip.
I was on the way home from a Ducati/BMW demo ride , cruising along with 
traffic on the hiway when the engine noise became louder than the exhaust. I 
got off at the next exit and decided it would be best to trailer home. lucky 
for me I was with a friend and got a ride home on his K1200S. I haven't rode 
passenger since 1980.
I'm having a friend take a look some time this week but would appreciate any 
thanks much Jersey Bill M
