knocking noise!!!

First of all just want to say this is a great site, been reading on it along time, but this is my first post...
I have an 09 LE stock...I went to Harlan County KY to the black mountain trails over weekend, did some harding riding an a little mudding all day on sat, on the way back to camp, I noticed my temp light flashing on the screen, so I shut it down, an herd coolant boiling out, didnt want to chance it so we towed it back to camp, let it cool an checked everything had to put about 3 16oz water bottles of coolant into the radiator, an topped off the resivoir, everything was good...
Hit the trails Again on sunday, ride all day an toward the end of the day when i Was ideling down hills my oil light would flash a couple times, I didnt think anything of it... well on the way back to camp, I ran it hard an hit 50 mph once, then I go to get on it again it would only go to about 40, slowed down got on it again an it would only do about 25 an it had rattle or knock to it, so I shut it down an pull it to camp, check oil an it is barely touching the dip stick.... So i fill it up with oil, an start it up, as long as it is idle to about half throttle, no noise, but once you hit half throttle the knock an rattle starts...
Any ideas on what it could be???? If I remember correct it seemed to make the noise when i first started getting pulled then it quit once we started making some speed... I've checked the belt an clutch, everything in there seems to be fine....

Any help is greatly appreciated...

So if it is just the rod bearings you dont have to split the case??? I figured you would have to....

Do you have to buy the entire rod or can you buy just the bearings? should I buy factory or does soemone offer a better aftermarket... I have built several atv race motors, this is my first v-twin belt motor I have ever messed with...

you can replace rods and bearings without splitting the cases just pull both top ends off....if you are going back to stock just order oem bearings and or rods carillo falicon and a few others make aftermarket

it's pretty simple pull the heads and barrels off, pull the pistons off the rods and you can access the rod bolts thru the holes in the case for the cylinders

AZ Damn...me too

From bcvfd626's description of what's going on with his knocking/rattling motor it sounds like I may have the same problem. If so this one is likely a bit above my pay grade in terms of technical knowledge to fix myself. Sorry not to hijack your thread but does anyone have any suggestions of where to take my teryx in the Phoenix area to have it fixed? Any guess on what it should cost to fix? Thx.

Thanks for the input on shops. I spoke to Jason @ Weller Racing today and am planning on taking it down there tomorrow to check it out. Hopefully it will not be too painful on the wallet.
