You are correct - Ducati used rockers on their water cooled engines that had a known problem (the coating flaked off in short order) for many years and did nothing about it other than sell replacement rockers at cut-rate prices (cut-rate pricing began around 2004-2005). However, the point regarding that portion of my previous post was that I struggled for over a year with this problem, in a race environment, until I found that Motul 300v virtually eliminated the wear/flaking. The switch to Motul from Mobil 1 was the only "change" as I was using rockers that I had bought in bulk from Ducati, setting the lash the same, etc.
