Hello fellow riders, my beloved 2000 GSXR 750 has served my well the past 5 years but has recently developed an engine knocking problem, the bike makes an extremely annoying knocking sound and is unable to generate power over 3000 rpm. I was told that it was a connecting rod issue and it's possible that the bearings could be damaged.
My question is, is this engine fixable, is it worth fixing and how much would it cost?
I love my bike and it's killing me not to be able to ride it so I'd really appreciate some sound advice from all you experienced riders and bike mechanics out there.
Thank you for your tips in advance.
