More info. How many miles on your bike, did you try different gas, any other symptoms?

A knock could be piston slap, detonation, loose parts rattling around, any number of things.

You have to try to find out where the 'knock' is coming from before there can be any help from anyone here.

Well, you better do something because if this 'knock' is a rod end bearing you are going to blow the rod out of the engine pretty soon.
