Re: Hello & help with GSXR1100/750M
Hi Mike and welcome
The barrel assembly is about 10mm taller on the 1100, so the carbs will sit a little higher - so the 1100 fuel tap is forward to that of the 750, but the tanks will fit. The seats from 750m and 1100m/n should be the same, along with the seat side panels and light etc.
The rear engine mount bolts on the 1100 are 10mm and 12mm (lower mount) - I can't remember if the late 750 had 2mm smaller lower mounts.... not a major problem though.
The 7/11 probably works better on the early models, as the frame was much lighter and made a bigger difference. The late 1100s suffered from more weight and poorer suspension than the 750 (750 had shorter swingarm too). With better suspension and a weight loss program the 1100 can handle very nicely - I went down this route and the bike feels better than I could've hoped, I did go a bit mad/obsessed...….it happens ! - went past my 80lb target by 20lbs, it's not a heavy now.
I don't know but you have options - smarten it up as a stocker...... gradually evolve it as a modded 1100..... or create a 7/11 as a street sleeper (750 decals and 1100 power - always good). You'll need to make sure the suspension, tyres and brakes are decent before you can have real fun, the bikes are pretty old now.
Whatever, have fun, the oil cooled GSXR's are nice to work on and they're a cool old bike to own.
