You're big end bearings are just about to give out. I've just rebuilt two * 2003 SV1000 engines where the bearings had failed.
Get it done now and save your engine!!!

    when i first bought my sv1000 i had the same problem i was seriously worried about it i took the water pump off and the casing and it ended up being the transmission bolt being loose if thats the problem torque the bolt to 80 ft lbs. you'll need a 36 m socket.

Hear a slight knocking sound coming from engine. Took it to the shop And the mechanic told me it was normal engine noise. Also slight ticking noise when bike is cold. The bike has 9500 miles on it.

take it back to that mechanic and have him look at your rods. or it could be a matter of no lube to the upper part of the motor. Give the oil a change and see if that fixes it. if not have the rods looked at.

I bought this bike from auction , charged the bat and when started it i found out the bikes engine light is one and it has a loud knock , is this going to cost heaps to fix?

If it is an engine bearing knock, it may be cheaper to look for another engine, but your not going to know until it is stripped and the cause of the knock is identified

Engine noise, little nock but not always

a knock could mean a bearing is starting to go...if the little knock you hear know starts getting louder the more you drive it, then its definitely a rod bearing.
