Gen 4 forks swap onto a gen 3

Anyone tried this?
Seems like this would be a cost effective upgrade for my gen 3
To get the big piston showa's
Also wonder zx6r bpf fit?
Rotors,axle and calipers I believe are all the same

The BPF aren't worth the trouble, youre better off upgrading your gen 3 components. Just cause it's new doesn't mean it's better.

Stupidity and Motivation are a dangerous combination

Not sure what the trouble would be appear to be a bolt in piece
Plenty avaible used on eBay and the reviews are fantastic.

By trouble I mean changing to BPF. Ive worked with a number of riders and there is a reason why the BPF guts get pulled out and carts are put in.

They are also shorter than the gen 3 is imagine some geometry adjustments might add to the difficulties.

You've been looking for front replacement for awhile. Have you tried springs piston kit and valving?

Actully haven't really started looking till the last month.
I am always looking for a good deal.
Now I have the Penske rear and feel I am out riding the stock suspension I'm looking into a upgrade. All I have read the stock springs are .95 kg and should be spot on for my 200 without gear weight.
Leaning toward a revalve but want to see what ally options were before I do that.
Just don't want to spend 6-800 on revalve and wish I would just went to the cartridges
