Hey guys, quick question: I've decided to start compiling parts needed for the resto/refresh of my 906 Paso. In shopping for braided brake lines I spotted a set on flea-bay that are listed for '87-'90 Paso 750. Are these compatible with the '90 906? I'd figure that they can't be too much different if at all, seeing that the bikes are similar & manufacturers usually use like parts for same year machines, but I wanted to seek experienced opinions. Another issue is finding rebuild kits for the calipers.....any ideas on where to search?

Thanks in advance!

Bevel Heaven seem to have a lot of the bits for refurbishing callipers and master cylinders.
Be cautious with brake and clutch lines as I bought a set from a company on ebay and could not get them to stop leaking at the line splitter on the front brake using the oem set up.

I was planning on going with a 2 line setup from the M/C and ditching the splitter altogether.

the answer is yes. If you look at the parts catalogues you see that the part numbers of the brake lines for the P750/906 and 750S are the same. The lines of the 907ie are different.

you'll need a micro switch for the brake light if you ditch the splitter Again Bevel Heaven to the rescue


I used a kit from these guys http://www.venhillusa.com/


Chris was very helpful.

Also any local hydraulic shop can make you a nice set of Teflon lines in almost any color you can think of.

Thanks for the replies! Yeah I'm going with the 2 line setup and a banjo switch. I've used them with good results on my supermoto conversion.
