The rocker supports do wear out. Shafts too. Peening the bores helps for a short while, but they loosen back up fairly soon. Some of the aftermarket supports are sloppy loose out of the box. Drill in split is prolly the only sure fix.

Top end noise is a common thing. When you do cam and or intake upgrades you will hear more noise. Most of the noise comes out out the throttle body and it really isn't anything to worry about. What year is your bike?
