it sounds like one of your sparkplug leads is breaking down under load,or it could be the cap,check all the sparkplug caps are tight on the leads,if it is not the caps or the leads it could be one of the coils,hope this helps

Assuming the carb is securely mounted and the noise is not from the tappets, there are several things it could be. One is piston slap. Piston slap translates as a worn piston "rattling around" inside the cylinder. Alternate to that, the wrist pin may have worn the connecting rod to the point where that is the problem. Alternate to that, the wrist pin itself may have wallowed out the piston on each end. Broken rings can make noise (but the bike would be smoking). Lastly, the connecting rod may be rattling around on the crankshaft. Change the oil and look for metal particles in the oil. No matter what the problem is, the engine is going to need to be torn down.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Testimonial: "thanks for the feed back. gonna bite the bullit and go for a full strip down. thanks again."
One, or more, of the three necessary ingrediants for combustion are missing: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time).
You said that it started to overheat. Find out why. Then, check the engine's compression. You need at least 140 psi of compression, in every cylinder, for the engine to start and run. Low compression indicates either the need for a valve adjustment - or serious engine repairs.
