Does anyone know where I might procure a u-bolt for the swingarm on an 88 Paso? It's the saddle/u-bolt that wraps around the rear axle eccentric and secures to the swingarm. Ducati part # is 037040225 but I don't seem to be able to source one.

The silence is deafening ... apparently not available anywhere? I couldn't find a source. I appreciate of course that they're not actually "bolts" but rather saddle clamps or similar, but Ducati calls them U-bolts in the parts manual. Anyway, at the moment used Paso swingarms are fairly easy to source. I bought a complete swingarm with rear axle, eccentrics and saddle clamps on eBay for $40. It was listed for a 906, but the parts book shows them to be the same number as for the 750 Paso.

40 bucks aint bad and the u bolt should be the same . I think the swingarm assy is the same for 906 ,750, not sure tho . Mostly peeps want the actual arm because either the rear sprocket bolts gouge an arc in the arm when they come loose (hint there ) or they cross thread the bolts holding the ubolt on and butcher the threads

The swingarm is indeed the same for the 750 and 906, so the caps are identical, thankfully. Funny you should mention the rear sprocket bolts; they were all loose. Did not know that was a thing with these, now I do. Also fun has been sourcing the 42x16x20 rear wheel bearings. Not available through any of the bearing houses, who tell me it's a "European" fitment. Found a set of new old stock FAG units on eBay for $7.50 each. Should be delivered today, with luck they're not so old the grease has completely solidified ...

Usually means they cant be bothered looking for them . I once took a pair of Fiat gearbox bearings to a bearing supplier who measured them up and told me ( no shit) " they have never made bearings like these son " , same guy also told me an oil seal I was looking for " wouldnt suffice technically " ..........we had a brief chat about his parents and sexual preferances before I left

Local bearing house is usually pretty on top of things, but yeah ...
FAG bearings found on fleabay arrived and are like new and correct. And a fraction of the price of any of the normal channels.
