Ducati 916 Biposto with 50 mm termis

Just uploaded my first video of starting the bike. Loads of videos out there but this is just on the starting.
No strange noises, ( as previous post, it would have been nice to show how the sprag clutch sounded when faulty ) just 50 mm end pipe termis fitted.
On pressing the kill switch the fuel pump primes. Then on pressing the starter. It turns over and within a few turns, It fires.
No fast tickover enabled. Lots of web articles how oil takes a long time to reach the top of the engine.
It ticks over at a steady rpm. Only the clutch lever when pulled in, can you hear the noise from the dry clutch.

Otherwise the sound of the termis hide any mechanical noise.
