Yep I got them in my bike, they are about 10MM longer than the 04-05 forks, so adjust them in the triples for that if wanted.

Wow, that's interesting. Do you feel a big difference in the ride quality? Was it worth the swap?
How's the price : performance ratio?

The only reason I changed them is cause I have Ohlins on my 06, and had the extra set of 06 forks, and wanted to be able to swap my wheels (PVM and Carozzeria) wheels back and forth between the two bikes with no hasles.

But they do seem a little bit bettter than the 04-05 forks, a little more compliant over the bumps, but I really have not played with setup that much.

So the 04 wheel axel? Or do I have to change the wheel bearings? If so will the 07 bearings fit the 04 wheel? Obviously the fender will fit if you guys are using PVM wheels. One of my caliper bolts was cross threaded at the factory, and is now striped. I like the look of black fork bottoms. Ohlins tubes would be nice, but I like the look of the 07 all black more. So I'm thinking of getting those and having them reworked.

NO, you will need a 06-09 and up front wheel and axle/spacers
