New grips and "rubber"

Post by Timpa Nidevo »

Hi everybody, I've recently purchased a 907IE that is in great order but needs a few things to get it up to my desired standard. Are there any recommendations for businesses that supply parts for Pasos? I'm in Melbourne, Australia but don't mind ordering from overseas.
The specific parts that I need are hand grips and a rubber circular guide that the speedo cable runs through on the front fender (pictured). These are listed as thus in the parts catalogue:
Grip Pair: 36140021A
Rubber: 079791070

Grips are like undies , get whats comfortable and the colour you like. I can recommend gel grips.
As for the cable guide, if your not anal about original parts ,just take a wander round bike shops till you see something you like and buy one , probly the biggest deal is the mounting hole size.

Thanks for the recommendation Randtcastell, it looks like that company sell both the items I'm after.
These (https://ducati-gowanloch.com/shop/contr ... upersport/) are the grips they have for sale which have the same part number as what is listed in the 907IE parts catalogue. My bike has aftermarket grips and I have not seen the OEM grips. Can anyone with OEM grips confirm that these are the OEM 907IE grips?

That cable holder is still usable. Just punch or drill a hole through the middle and use a cable tie to hold it. I'd do that also with a new one. If the cable pulls on it when you steer from lock to lock the speedometer cable is not the correct length.
Maybe there were different grips on the early an later 907IEs. The early ones had these grips: https://app.box.com/s/99zr8hvlxf/file/822811138943

Thanks for the replies every one. I'm not 100% sure on what the "correct" hand grips are for a '91 but I'll be happy so long as they look period-correct.
Both Gowanloch Ducati and Belt and Bevel look like really useful sites, thanks for the tip.
