Hello All,
I am doing some long overdue work on my 907. It was repainted an off yellow color before I acquired it. I plan on bringing it back to red. I have sanded most of it down and found the original red layer underneath. I do have some repairs to the fairing. I found a great kit for plastic repairs but I could also use a basic fiberglass repair. I would love to get some feedback. Here is the kit https://www.polyvance.com/Motorcycle-Fairings-Repair/

I also need to remove the grommets that hold in the anchor nuts for the fairing. I believe I have the original rubber grommets on there. Some are tearing. Does anyone have a trick for safely pulling these? (soapy water, etc?). Are you guys replacing these? Do you have a source? I've seen the ebay kits but not sure whether to trust them or not, especially at over $50 for some screws / bolts...

Any feedback is certainly appreciated!!!!

Cheers,
Spencer

Hi Spencer,

Fo you mean these (037072020)?
These are readily available (new, freshly produced) at around $1 (Stein-Dinse.com).

Assume either Ducati dealer or Bevelheaven (California) will have them on stock ...

I think he means the rubber nuts. Those can be pulled out from the backside of the fairing parts.

Known as wellnuts... thread a bolt in from the backside and pull them out as Paso suggests.

Thanks guys!!!

The bike is going back to red. I am going to powdercoat the wheels a vintage gold. I found a reproduction decal set from a company called Tapeworks Graphics.

Otherwise I am also doing a major service for the first time on the bike. I come from working on my vintage Ferrari, so I would imagine maintaining this is on the same level. I plan on getting all from CA Cycleworks and their tutorial videos seem very helpful.

Areas to address are:
-Timing Belts
-Valve check / adjustment
-Oil filter
-Gas filter
-Check for any leaks (oil is dripping lightly from somewhere)
-Check break pads
-Check and lube chain

replace my five year old tires

The bike only has 17K miles on it. I have had it for five years and put about 2K miles on it. Time to get to work on it!!!

Cheers,
Spencer

I will also note this is my dream bike. I was lucky enough to grow up in Silicon Valley. I remember the first time I saw a light blue Paso on the street. It was the most beautiful bike I'd ever seen. I even used to have a sweatshirt as a kid that said "Classico Italia" and had the side profiles of a Testarossa and a Paso, both showing off their side strakes in their '80's bravado. I plan on running the bike as long as I can have parts to keep it going!

Cheers and thank you all!

seems to be the basic formula for red from ppg
PPG

J84 1.3
J52 46.5
J54 10.2
J58 .5
J92 2.5
J93 68.8
J87 2.5
* This is the furmula to make it, not a paint code, each "J" is a color tint*

Hi,

I used Teroson 9225 UF ME (UF = Ultrafast, don't take the SF, Superfast, as it does not cure fast enough for this application. ME = Micro emission) for repairing my 750 Paso's fairing.

http://www.loctite.co.uk/loctite-4087.h ... 2654093313

Underneath half of the mounting bracket was missing. So I sanded it up, grinded the edges to increase the surface and create space, drilled a nice line of holes to get a strong bond, cleaned everything and applied the Teroson product.

It is an ultrafast curing polyurethane which you apply using a plastic foil. Hold the foil in such a position that you can fill it up with the product. Keep it still and let it cure for 60 - 90 seconds. After full cure you can file and sand the workpiece in the desired form and paint it. Worked very well. Also very useful for repairing cracks in fairings.

I’ve added some pictures, but unfortunately I haven’t taken any of the end result. So you’ll have to believe me on my blue eyes :)
