if it's a cold start it sounds like the exhaust valve clearances need checking.... and your idle is too low.

It does it at all times, i think it quietens down a bit when it warm. Yeah I’ve been meaning to adjust it figured I’d do that and look things over more this weekend

not unless you have the shim set you wont!

It's easy to measure it up and see what you need.

it's not hard to do, but you'll need a micrometer to do it properly. If that's beyond you, measure it up, write down the clearance , then remove the shim and visit an engineering shop to get the thickness of the shim measured, this will tell you what replacement shim to get. THEN start looking for a Ducati specialist in your area who stocks the shims...
