This is normal when coolant gets old (sediment). I suggest taking the coolant expansion tank out and rinsing it. Or add hot water and syphon it all back out. This is not a likely sign of failures

Do try to rinse out the rest of the cooling system, though. No reason to have this crud keeping the coolant from doing its job.

Thanks, this is a disaster to get that reservoir out! I want to find the design Engineer and smack him upside the head

Everything is meant to be done in a particular order... You remove the tank and the fairings, then remove the airbox inlets, the air filter, the airbox, the radiator, etc., etc. then you remove the valve covers to check/adjust the valves. As long as you do it the way Ducati had it planned? It will make some sense... Only some...

Also with cooling systems... If/when you remove hoses for whatever reason, put some vaseline on the hose so it doesn't rot where it connects. Snug up the hose clamps - they give way after a while. Do not overtighten the hose clamps - that will cut the hose.
