I would look at the thermostat valve first, It's number 19 in the parts catalog and Ducati calls it a "squirter unit".
The second time I took it to the shop I asked for him to completely look over bike. I was told the overheating was from a bad gear that caused the water pump to fail. SO, I can't say for sure if the head gasket was checked, but I will add that to the list. I appreciate the input.Hi mate have you had the head gasket checked ?
