The Ducati 916bp has been laid up for quite a few months. The mileage at just over 48k. When I was using it every day it started on the button within a few turns. Today it took quite a while and was not running properly on both cylinders. Maybe the reason why it is so hard to start. My gut feeling is that it is not good for any mechanical device to be laid up. They need to be used every so often. I hope to get the bike back on the road or possibly am thinking it might be time to sell. Motorcycle news are currently looking at running a review of the Ducati 916. I wonder what they will have to say.
What do you think of the 916
