Damn I hate agreeing with Kirby all the time but the S&S Premiums are the quietest lifters I've ever come across.
PM me with your address & I’ll send you a set to try.

S&S lifters and AV&V beehives.

That's what the 117 has (Premiums, no limiters),,, nice & quiet for 42k+ so far... :up: :up:

The quietest lifters by far are the ones that are used in a bike that has proper spring tension, oil pressure, valve protrusion pushrod/tube clearance and rocker support alignment. Use a quality lifter like Johnson hylift, S&S, Fueling.
If you don't have a sense of humor you probably have no sense at all.

Don't forget a concentric valve seat and face on the valve

i run woods 160 psi springs on a woods 9bg 630 lift work great, but i am running them at 180 seat.  i like the woods lifters , i would like to try the jims steady roll or what ever they call them with the bushing not needle bearings but have not heard enough info about them yet to know if they last long enough.

every work order i wrote for head/engine work got a set of Rocker Lockers..........i didn't even tell 95% of my customers.

of course that is in addition to all the proper engine building practices that have been thoroughly discussed.

i went with HyLift Johnsons myself when i built my own engine, before i knew Larry sold them.....but used Feuling in the shop. i'm rebuilding my '95 evo to sell soon and will be calling Larry for her lifter needs.

my personal shovels and evos ALWAYS get Velva Touch.
build it, bust it.....figure out why

Which lifters? Do they have travel limiters installed?

I like the S&S and Larry's, Ive ran both and like them the same.
Other things to look into:
Pushrods hitting the aluminum pushrod tube (drill to 5/8)
Make sure the pushrod isn't skating off the rocker cup due to lift (use ball end pushrods)
Rocker lockers!, I use them in every engine. I also use them to center up the rocker boxes.
Rocker arm to valve stem contact pattern, make sure it is in the center of the valve through the lift.
 
I'm not here cause of a path before me, Im here cause of the burnout left behind

I would just adjust them 0.100" to 0.120" preload.

  Larry told me .140" deep with no limiters on his premium lifters.
I set them there and all was good. I think .125" deep would work.
  The new lifters Larry sells with the limiters...I adjusted them off the bottom. I went one flat off, after the valve seated and I could spin the p/rod. It gave me a nice quiet valve train.

Just slipped mine in last weekend. Did the oil can to the oil hole on the lifter prime, fired it up not a noise on initial startup..quiet as church mouse.!

I have S&S premium lifters installed in my M8 and have at least one that ticks like crazy after sitting overnight but will quiet down about 30 seconds after start up. Not much help from S&S customer service except return them to were I got them. Last time I purchase lifters through Amazon!
