Gen 3 Crankshaft in Gen 2 motor?

Does anyone know if 08 -2010 cranks will work in an 06/07 motor. They are reportedly 2lbs lighter than the 2nd gens. I'm looking to reduce the gyroscopic effect and make the bike more flick-able. The crank cases changed but the dimensions are supposed to be the same.

Thanks for any advice

I know the clutch baskets won't interchange so I'd say no, but I think its been answered all ready.

Four-Cylinder, DOHC 998cc Engine
- Very compact, narrow and lightweight design makes it possible to position the engine perfectly within the chassis for optimal weight distribution
- One-piece upper crankcase and cylinder casting saves weight and offers maximum rigidity
- Oil is routed through channels milled into the cases on various parts of the engine, eliminating external oil lines and reducing weight
- Stacked, triangular layout of crank axis, input shaft and output shaft reduces engine length and aids mass centralization for quick handling
- Lightweight crankshaft maintains the same inertial moment as a heavier design but saves about two pounds compared to a conventional crank
- Low friction oil pump reduction ratio reduces parasitic power loss
- Water pump uses the same type impeller as the ZX-14, with pump rpm optimized for reduced friction
- A lightweight Denso radiator with tightly packed cores provides the most efficient engine cooling possible
- Specially designed internal fins on the liquid-cooled, aluminum oil cooler promote high-efficiency heat dissipation
