906 Paso

Anyone? Seems like it's the last one on earth...

Picked up this project that was in the shop for 4 years for simple cosmetic damage but somehow engine got taken apart... now I'm presented with boxes and boxes of parts and also found some melted wiring. Not restoration, just get running and on the road, but it may need few parts.

Seems this touring forum is all about ST models, just want to know if I'm wasting my time here?

Sounds like a very cool project, they are nice bikes. I've seen a few on the road and at meets local to us, but there is really no Paso talk in this sub forum. Pretty much all ST. There are probably Paso boards to join out there. Try a Goggle search.

I know about all the other forums, but I love this place, was hoping to find some Paso love here!

It's been a while since I've been here, but I still have my 906. It's still a blast to ride.
Oddities, 16" rims, useless mirrors, 280 mm front brake rotors are far and few between and the original seat is a nut crusher.
The water cooled engine makes traffic easier to deal with. Add a manual fan switch for better heat discharge.
A lot of the parts are available on the SS models and a few a shared with the Guzzi's of that time too. The original weber carb sucked. I heard that a fuel pressure regulator made them little better. Mine has dellOrtos, 40 mm(?) which are only slightly less finiky. FCR's would probably be happier on a 906.
I have a manual and the majority of info in a 2V Desmo Times manual is applicable.
For the most part is like an older brother to a 900SS, except a little heavier, water cooled and maybe a step behind in handling. It has a love/hate design appeal. People either look at it in horror or with a knowing smile. Over the years a bunch people have stopped by to talk, laugh and wish they'd never sold theirs.
The 907's had all the oddities worked out of them, but I'll still keep a 906, warts and all. I'd restore it, they are unique in the Ducati world.

yeah, all you need to know about that bike is on Ducatipaso.org. Good group, and very knowledgable.
Otherwise, one of the odd ducks of time. 9 for 900cc, 6 for six speed tranny. Made one year. New tires available from Golden Tire, italy. Yeah, those carbs can be trouble, or you can take the time to dial them in as some have. Restore it, and make it a weekend piece that everyone will look at, for one reason or another. One thing is for sure, you will have the only one on Sunday on the ride. Well worth the time. Some huge fans of that bike, and of course more than a few detractors. 100% Ducati.

Cheers, Phil

Can someone help me out and et me hooked up with the Ducatipaso.org forum? I've registered twice and can't seem to get a response to activate my account, so I'm unable to post at all. I need access toba Paso forum as I am the new owner of a 907ie.

I've also registered twice and have never been signed up. Jon sent my request to one of the admin guys and still nothing. It's very frustrating since I've got two 907's and would like to participate on the forum. It's been well over a month and nothing. Arch
