Hey Mike, Guy asked you to call him so that you two could talk about it. Last I heard, you haven't. What gives? You won't talk to him but you'll keep up the negativity?
You can e-mail him your phone number and a time and he'll call you. That's his normal customer service. Guy Martin of Martin Brickwood Ducati: [email protected]

BTW, Guy is working on the THIRD generation of valve retainers. This will be the second improvement upon the original design. All of the retainers of the first improvement over the initial design have sold out. Each improvement of the design is geared to ease installation without sacrificing longevity of the valve's adjustment.
And I agreed with Bruce about street riders not really needing the longevity of the valve retainers. Zina rides her M900 well but rarely bangs off the rev limiter and gets up to 20k miles between needing a valve adjustment. But ... when I "street rode" my 900SS, I caned that bike and it needed the OE valves/retainers adjusted frequently. My use and that bike were a good candidate for the MBP retainers. Also ... once stainless or Ti valves are installed, the MBP retainers are considered mandatory! The valve gets beat up from the OE style keeper.
