could i swap safely because the 1100 rim is wider than that of the 750?

Jimmyhat,

I just put a set of '91 1100 rims on my '86 750. No handling probs and it fits fine. I am running a 120/70ZR17 front and 180/55ZR17 rear with no clearance problems. If you have to buy the rims anyway I'd say get them from an 1100 with a 5.5" rear so you can run the 180 tire on the rear. I ahve put about 400 miles on since finishing the swap and have found no unusual handling characteristics.

John250R what kind of swing arm do you have on your 86 gsxr 750 ??? or do the 91 1100 wheels fit right on the stock one?

You should have no trouble mounting the wheel. Before I put on custom wheels I did the same thing. The only problem you my have depends on the tire you use. It may rub on the brake stay arm. To fix just put a slight bend in it where the tire rubs.

YoungGixxer,

I have the stock arm and had to do no mods to brake stay. But, as Bones said, it depends on the tire. I am running Metzeler Rennsports and I had no clearance problems. Even if you run into he tire hitting the stay it is an easy fix.
