1994 zx6e engine noise

I am looking at a 1994 zx6e that has 32k on the clock the guy says it is having the beginning of a rod knock he wants $1000.00 seems pretty clean otherwise. It comes with a helmet and jacket, what do you guys think? Is this a common problem or could it be something else?

they are pretty reliable motors but of course it could be that, need more description of the noise.

most commom thing that makes nasty noises is cam chains from bad cam chain tensioners

to what he said, most likely it's valvetrain.

You can tell with a stethoscope if you can get at it while it's running.

HAIL TO THE KING!!
