Yeah mine is a bit noisy and im running that oil. I think mine needs reshimming as I think its settled in since putting the new head on.
Also think the oils been thinned out a bit from where its running a bit rich top end.

I change the oil every 5000miles or yearly. This is the first time ive used the stuff but I think its due a change so ordered some ready. Im gonna check my clearances at some point.

I change my oil every 1000 miles I thinks it's a bit excessive but u use my car daily and only ever use Fuchs racing oil 10/50.
My head seemed very noisy and had it shimmed it seems ok now!

Sounds like valve clearances Glenn. We can have a look on fri. I always used the silcolene pro s 10/50 without a problem.
