Nope, that someone was not very educated on Ducati's. The valve CHECKS used to be every 3000 miles. They are now set for every 6000 miles; this is part of Ducati's new marketing. Unless they are ridden very hard, most bikes rarely need valve adjustments after the initial break-in.
I'd rather do it than watch it.
