The 1100 that's shown in the rebuild on the 3rd page of the thread is from a 1st gen 1100 and I don't think it will fit the 2nd gen mountings. It won't fit the 1st gen 750 without some questionable modification either. You're going to be better off getting a Fox, WP, Ohlins or other shock that's made for the 2nd gen suspension. I've got a Fox twin clicker for my 89 GSXR and it seems like a pretty good shock to me, although I'm still building it so I don't know what it's like in action yet.Unbelievable thread, glad I found it.
One question regarding the 1100 shock being put on a 750, from what I've read here it is fairly simple, cheap, and gives at least a minor improvement in handling (not to mention they're rebuildable). Is this correct? Basically buy one and slap it in? I'm interested in throwing one on my 88 750.
