I would say yes
I never seen anyone who did it, but ive seen both onto a 1st gen and they fit without any issues, i would think is the same.

You might need a brake bracket and brake line but im not sure on that either.

The ones I've seen who have done it on a 2nd gen went with a side mount exhaust. I was thinking of keeping my under tails. Would this still work with my ohlins ka540 rear shock with no clearance issues? Maybe down the line when I get more cash flow get the Racefit or just fab a side mount like one of the members here.

No it wont fit with a undertail exhaust.

And the shock might not work either.
I know the 1st gen ohlins shock wont work with the 3rd gen arm.
