Are those from the guy over on dot MS?….wait….that conversation was only yesterday. Or is he local to you?
Almost.Now split and fully disassembled, found all the usual....hardened, stuck orings everywhere, nasty insides, way overtightened screws on bowls and tops, ovaled needle jets (unique to Ducati). Small parts in ultrasonic right now, getting a jump ahead.
Owner advises bike (Ducati 900SS/FE) has sat since 2001, wowsers. And he has authorized install of brand new Y-4 needle jets (which I stock specifically for these situations)

Gen 1 Suzuki 1200 Bandits had a nasty habit of oval-ing the needle jets over time as well, making tuning impossible until new (expensive) parts were installed.
Old GSXRs too. I’ve a set of BST38s with all 4 ovaled out.certain Yamahas as well. $19-20 each for new Y-2 or Y-4 needle jets.
