what you have described is due to the timing excentricity of the cam , because it fires a spark even on the exhaust stroke . if you have electronic ignition move one of the cams ever so slightly one way (advance) or the other (retard) and i do mean slightly , its whats known as a "soft knock" to honda mechanics and fixing it is a bugger of a task but with a little bit of patience you can cure it to a reasonably acceptable nuisance .conventional points just move the back plate again only slightly.
I would be REAL INTERESTED in any information or explanation you have for "soft knock"!! We have a thread on unexplained "knocking" and any insight...especially from honda mechanics would be real valuable!
