If the oil light didn't come on, I'd think it's top end problems which would
be easy to check by just taking off the cam covers.

One more question, did the oil light come on? Typically when you spin a
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
on the hiway when the engine noise became louder than the exhaust. I got off
the next exit and decided it would be best to trailer home. lucky for me I
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 opinions
thanks much Jersey Bill M
