New Oil with New Cam??

I recently put in a new hotcam, and the thing makes a valve "ticking" sound (the lash is set right) when the bike warms up. I was thinking I might try some 20W50 to reduce the noise. Anybody think this is a good idea??

I was told to try some full synthetic to help quiet the ticking sound the hot cams make. I would stick to a 10w-40 full synthetic.

I was told it is the stock springs working harder due to the cam having more lift and duration. It kinda sounds like the valves are out of adjustment.

So would stiffer springs get rid of it? I've been thinking about hot cam stage 2.

Im not sure? I have heard the Webb cams are quieter but they use stiffer springs. I guess it's possible. The hot cams are designed to work with stock springs,piston and rockers though? It's not that bad though. My Barker pipe is Friggin loud as hell! So I don't really notice It that much.
