When I got my shock it came with the yamaha linkage. I swapped the bearing insert from the yamaha linkage into the katana bearing and used the yamaha bolt.

I would keep the 750 shock and have it rebuilt. Here is TMODs web site. It is the most reliable way to reach him. http://norwestsuspension.com/

Don't know about the R6 swap, but see there post above - Terry TMod) can rebuild the 1100 shock - rebuild, revalve and respring, like a while new bike. He might be able to shim it a bit too drop the height of that's what you are after.
