    No. It will not make any Noise. Trust the oil and pour it.

    20W-50 Oils definately suppresess engine noises. Regardes of the performance, if u would switch to any 10W-40,15W-40 or 20W-40 Oil u will found it bit noisy for ur bike.One more thing i wud like add is Rimula is designed to be used is Diesel engines which have diffrent X tics (Though these multi grade oils also meets some of the standrds of spark ignited engines) but i it can harm the wet clutch system in motorbikes so i will say NO to use of Rimula in Motor bike engine.
