Motorcycle: first gen 750's & a '99 750
Re: oiler on the track - need help
like nick mentioned, installing a complete upside down front end is the way to go, in order to get the first gens ready for track use. yes, it will lower the front, but you will also want to increase the rear ride height, because these first gens need more weight on the front/sit too low in the rear. i have a 5 first gen 750's that i have modified for track use, and i do slightly rub on the left hand side, but i don't have any issues.
not sure how to get rear ride height increase on the 1100's, since i fitted modified 1100 shock linkage on my 750's with an ohlins shock, to give me around 35-45mm ride increase.
either way, install the complete 750 front end, fit a 17x5.5 rear wheel, proper race tires, and an ohlins, fox or some quality aftermarket shock. keep us posted with your progress.
