Ducati Question ?

Have any of you had your rockers go bad and if so what was the mileage and what were the symptoms? How much to fix them? I've heard that you see metal shavings in the oil, but I also heard that you can't tell at all.

Yes I've had 3 go bad so far. I changed my oil at 5k miles, found no flakes. Brought the bike in for the 6k service and the dealer found the bad rockers. 1999 996. They replaced them free of charge.
