The strange thing is the cams on other side of the engine have been perfect.

Knocking noise from the R/H side - R1100 50K miles.
Cause = Worn cams, cam followers, cam/rocker holder and rocker arms.
The cylinder head after all the rocker gear and camshaft has been removed

Cam/rocker holder.

Cam and cam followers.


Cam followers in the holder.

Cam followers

New cams and followers

Thanks Steptoe I now after several attempts to silence the right cylinder have a new place to look.

I quoted your hole post because I felt it needed to be (Great info Thanks)
