Nope, not me , actually I don't know anyone in Arizona :P . Don't you guys have phone/business directories over there? :D . And anyhow WE ( here at DucatiPaso) are the leading authority on all things Paso , we have experienced experts in all major countries and continents , willing and able to help with technical advice , parts and even smart arsed answers ( that's me :lol: )...............so Keno , whats the problem ? The Paso , whilst a great bike , unique styling, can be a bit quirky and a lot of bike shops seem to either shy away from them or charge heaps and don't fix it properly . Collectively we have seen it all and found good solutions to the all the issues, there is a good F.A.Q section for you to browse too . I am stuck at home all day , bored shitless so lets hear it :)
Oh yeah , WELCOME to the site :) :)

every now and then I get the same question from a newbe... and , in all honesti, I am aalways a little bit lost for words.

Other than few minor details , some of wich are not repairable (ECU, modules) and some a little bit "difficult" (Weber), any other part is more or less the same you will find on any Monster or ST2 therefore any mechanic who deals with Ducati MUST be able to fix them and most good mechanics should be able to work around then as these bikes DO NOT require a degree in rocket engineering.

Moreover 99.99% of the information is out there (most on this website) so even a non professional with some mechanical attitude and passion for the Dukes should be more than capable of carrying on most of the repairs.

Ih I really need to give a suggestion, I would say to look for a Historical Ducati dealer, they might have come acrosso to the Paso and are the ones with the correct attitude towards the old models.

guys, guys, guys. Have you considered that maybe he just doesn`t have the time or other priorities? :)

One guy that sold his 907ie on the forum years ago wrote he had his serviced at Tom’s Italian Tune and Service in Mesa.
Don`t know if that helps.

Problem is most us gnarly grumpy old gits do our own servicing so know everything :banghead:

We also probably live about as far away as possible to do it for you for free :beer: .................. so try this as G stated

Sure these guys will send you in the right direction...... most probably back here :thumbup:
