No sign of binding or other reasons for the high wear rate. Very strange.
Less than 2000km on mine and I noticed the fluid has gone dark too. I wonder if a full Termi system will help cure the problem

And you are right, best damn bike ever, we are riding a classic, from the trellis frame era that Ducati went through often quoted as their golden years of making bikes
