nice, had a wp 11 back in the day, can u settle a bet, did suzuki make these the water cooled from the sacs in 93 (WP) for the 11's and 92 for the 750 AFAIK, but they stopped in 96 but continued to be sold until 98 but as 1996 unregistered units with the 99 and 98 models actually being WT 96 bikes if u get me, never mind wiki and even suzuki have buried the history of the 1100 w models almost as if they were never made atall, try find any official suzuki info on these on any suzuki site?

They switched to water cooling for the 92 model year on their 750, but US models remained oil/air cooled until 93. Same with the 1100. The 750 changed to srad in 96, the last 750 old style was the WS in 95, and there was a limited edition SPR in 94-95.
The 1100 was kept alive til 1998 though, with a few small changes each year. I notice the 1100 gets the good bits from the 750, only a year later! I have an 94 750 and 1100 and the 750 has the cool headlights with the multi-faceted reflectors and no glass lens over each light. The eleven has the old twin lights, but with a huge glass cover over it, and it still has the gull arm whereas the 750 has the braced swinger. Hope this info isn’t too late;)
