Re: Rear shock options

Had a useful chat with Brook suspension here i the uK wrt new rear shock. Nitron don’t do a size that fits. YSS do specify one for the 750 paso. They have given me the dimensions but clearly it would be easier if someone wiser than me on this site could confirm they are the same dimensionally? From ...

Re: Rear shock options

Thanks for your comments. They have been extremely useful. I feel the marzocchi duo is getting closer to the bin! I will be looking into a new replacement. I will report back as to what I purchased and what I think of it.

Re: Rear shock options

Are you trying to tell me the factory lied about BHP when new, AND it’s lost some of them over the last 30 years? You have burst my bubble :lol:

Rear shock options

I can no longer live with the ‘crash bang wallop’ of the very old and knackered marzocchi duo monoshock and need to do something (but can’t throw ohlin type money at it! Searching through the archives it appears the shock is rebuildable (maxton maybe). My first question is, would a new shock, such a...

Re: Yet another project

Welcome Neil, looks like a great project. I have 750 sport as well. Not running but sort of nearly next in line LOL. As you alluded to there is a wealth of information on this site and a number of very knowledgeable individuals. I will take a look at your website

17 and 16 wheel combination

Curious if this fine beast is anyone on this forum? It was photographed by a friend of mine at a track day. It appears to have a 16 inch wheel at the front but a 17 conversion at the rear. I’m curious how this works. Maybe a great combination given the 16 inch front and steering angle allows for a s...

Re: Shinko tyres again available

... and the F1 Laguna Seca ;) more ... practical black/alu wheels of the 750 paso actually the white ones are probably more practical as they seem to have less corrosion problems and there's no clear coat that can peel off. I was mentioned long time ago here on the forum that WD40 works fine for cl...

Re: Shinko tyres again available

This is good. I purchased a pair about 4 years ago. Maybe this summer or next I will need to replace. Could you state the supplier you used. I did have a look a month or so ago for UK based suppliers and drew a blank which started to worry me!

Re: 1988 Paso Runs - Jetting Questions

I think someone not so long ago put some of these carbs on a 750 sport engine. He may have put the setting s as well. I did start to search for it on here then decided that would be a nice job for you to do :lol:

Re: Rear Axle at 6 O'clock or 12 O'clock

What tool do you guys use to rotate the end pieces with? I’m going to make a dedicated tool when I get a moment but would be keen to hear of simple elegant solutions.

Rear calliper plate required

Discovered that the rear mounting plate for the calliper has a lug missing. See photo. Does anyone have one for sale. Need it quick as I was planning to run the paso in the next week or two as my day to day hack has issues (bloody Guzzi’s should know better).

Re: I'm Thinking of having my wheels powder coating freshene

Curious how you are planning to match the white. I guess there is a multitude of shades of white. I also guess with regular paint one could have any shade of white made up. Is this possible with powder coating. Any powder coating experts here?

Re: Buying secondhand

Hi Steve, welcome to the forum. There does seem to be a big difference in prices, some in dealers want four or five thousand. However, they never seem to sell! I paid about a grand for a non runner 2 or three years ago. There’s not a grea5 demand for them so you should get a decent price between 1 a...
