I don't know if it applies here but the 1995 Honda VFR 750 had an idle hammer issue (just that year, funnily the 1994 didn't) that turned out to be end knock on the camshaft. Honda fixed it by getting a hole drilled which fed oil under pressure to the end of the camshaft. Anyway, the symptoms sound similar, including the time needed for the problem to develop, so I thought I'd mention it because a lot of us spent time chasing other causes.... Obviously it was irritating but not a requirement to have it fixed.
