Hi Guys, just bought a fuel tank from Netherlands for my 906, just noticed on the pictures the fuel tap is on the RHS and not as mine on LHS, will I still be able to use it with my existing sender etc. Also it does not have a breather pipe... may be its for a 750? EBAY Item number: 120960087280 :(

It is a 750 tank. The 906 tank just has the Ducati writing below the stripes while the P750 has it above the stripes plus the Cagiva Elephant.
However that`s not the typical 750 tank either, I had posted pictures of it in the past.
Usually the 750 tank is same as the 906 tank with the return and breathing connections on the right and the fuel tap on the left.
You`ll have to change your fuel lines but other than that there`s no problem using that tank on your bike.
There is a breather connection btw. It`s near the rear mounts. It`s also indicated on the sticker.

I guess you haven`t tried to ask your local Ducati dealer ?

Don`t ask for a part for a Paso, always go there with the part number !

If you are not successful:
I have a red 750/906 fuel tank here, wich i bought as a spare part when i did not know, that the 907 tank is different.

Just give me a short PM.
