Everyone was used to slide needle Dellortos and Mikunis. When we changed out the mufflers, a 750 Paso would fall on it's face. Terrible drivability and throttle response. The owners wouldn't want to pay for hours of fiddling to try to get the Weber to run correctly. The Americanized Weber was way too lean from the factory.
For a little more dosh, a pair of 36mm Dellortos really wake the bike up.
I did get to ride a very rare bird, an '88 Limited 750 Paso. The european version of the Weber worked much better. Even it suffered when the owner had a 2 into 1 system installed. He went to Dellortos too.
