Which slave did you go for? Oberon?

Correct. Sorry not had much time to post on here as currently overseas on a training course. TBH anything is better than the stock slave cylinder. Ive used Oberon on many bikes and never had an issue. The specs of the CNC version are very similar in that respect so thought I would give it a whirl.

What size slave will I need for the V4? looking on their website there are many to choose from.

There's only one version they offer for the V4 IIRC.

Darkling I trust they are coming to the party with new fairing if the brake fluid damaged the paintwork, I would expect that & not just a f***en repaint either.

Yes was told by my dealer about the 3mm to 2mm dia refit on the clutch hose, he alluded the issue is with the piston in the M/Cylinder.
It makes you wonder why Ducati changed it from models that they had on previous bikes which had no issues.
My V4 goes in for a sticker kit next week, week after the oil cooler, cam tensioner re-torque, clutch hose (If there) the mech broke his foot and then got DVT so is out for 3 weeks.

I am just thankful I have other bikes to ride it would drive me bonkers not being able to put tar under the wheels every day.

Just dropped of mine for the clutch hose , oil cooler and 3 more. My bike is at 5600 miles and I love it dearly, but clutch on mine is absolute shit in terms of sucking air. It used to be an issue just on track, but now it goes flaccid after a few street rides. I can’t see how smaller diameter hose will fix the problem though, but who knows.

If it continues, I am going to invest in some parts.

I had both my master and slave cylinders rebuilt around 4800 miles, was having to bleed the air out every 500 miles or so prior to that. After the rebuild, I haven't had any more problems with it. At around 7300 miles now.
