Describe the sound.
Some machines hae a metal exhaust cover that deflects the heat from certain areas. Usually found at the first turn of the heaqd pipe. If the sound is a little "tinny" or "ratting" it may be that.
Coming from the bottom of the motor might not be good. Most Honda's are better off left alone. If it was an actual big bore kit, that would be one thing, but if the person had engine problems and just fixed the top end it may have needed lower end work also.
Usually, you wouldn't see that until a lot of miles or a LOT of hard riding.
How many miles on the machine? Any mods, ETC. ?
