Knocking sound? or misfiring?

I got a 2008 CBR600RR and i recently noticed when I am decelerating, I can faintly hear a knocking sound that sounds almost similiar to a rod knock sound. I cannot be totally sure as i do not hear anything when it is idling. Could it be a misfiring issue cause by bad plugs or ignition coils?

If it helps, when I throttle the bike above 3k RPM the bikes somehow sounds like a V-engine? but when it gets in the upper RPM band it sounds alright.

Any inputs on this or experience with this you guys had?

Do you hear something?
Slight unevenness on decel.
Could be worn-out chain & sprockets.
Worn-out cam-chain or tensioner.
Might be uneven cylinder firing due to blown headgasket (sucks in coolant on decel).

manometer to balance throttle bodies.
