It could have just been a small piece of carbon flaked off inside the cylinder and was in between a narrow space between the piston and head or between the exhaust valve and seat but broke loose and blew out the exhaust

Hi, Shawn I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE

8. Front Forks---PLUNK
9. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK

Honda vfr 800 vtec running hot

make sure that the anti-freeze anti-boil additive is at the correct concentration
check that the radiator cap is operating correctly because it it is not holding pressure at the right setting then the coolant will be hotter
have the thermostat checked by a competent operator or fit a new unit
check tuning and timing is correct as a bit less than specifications will run hotter

What would cause popping when I turn it off?

a shredding fan belt?
why not get the car checked out.??? buy a SHOP
you shut the engine off, and when you do, that it coasts to a stop
and did the noise come from the engine bay? and did the noise happen as engine was coasting to its natural stall or after that?
noises that happen, not moving are easy to find. so
get a competent mech, to find it. it be easy for them.

Rattle in engine when warm. rattle is high up on the right side of engine

all i know about these bikes is that they dont have the usual valve train and use a gear systems instead. it could be possible that there is a problem with the top end and you should take it to a dealer to have a look. hope this is of some help if it is could you rate my answer. thanks.
