Oilman recomended silkolene pro s 10w 50 to me..top oil.

supposed to be really good for noisey lash adjusters.

put uprated ones in off evo400/rg motorsport, with silkolene.

quiet as a mouse..........shhhhhhhhhh.

put uprated ones in mate if you can afford it and never worry again bout tappets again

P.s more than likely the noise will return if you just change the oil,cleaned mine out properly,but were ok only for 4 months :(
