Hello...from your comment it sounds like your bike needs a valve adjustment. The "hollow" sound in the exhaust and the powerband loss is usually a good indication of this. Have you had them adjusted lately? This first adjustment should be done at 5000 miles and then every 7500 miles there after.
The settings are:
Intake .003 - .005
Exhaust .007 - .009
Always set valves on a COLD engine.
I hope this helps...good luck with your bike.

This knocking will escalate with use to louder knocking.Take off the cylinder head's cover, the camshafts and the chain tensioner to check them for damage. If they are ok it would be wise to proceed to an overhaul repair and check everything inside and replace the connecting rod with a new one.
