Will Gen 3 Front Forks Inners fit my Gen 2

Was wondering if the inners ie. fork caps, rebound push rod, entire inside assembly fit inside my 2007 gen 2 tubes ? just changed my seals and didnt properly set one seal so i have to re do it . Was thinking since i am there i would upgrade the guts and have the titanium look cap instead of my red one which is fading due to sun exposure

Anyone have any information or can confirm this change will woork would be great .. I dont have the coin for Cartridge kits or upgrading beyond what I am hoping will work ..

If this will not work ... the slide tube that compresses the spring could i replace that plastic tube with a longer one on both sides to increase spring rate and compensate it with less rebound and compression or am i headed in the wrong direction in this thought process

Sorry man, I don't know if they'd fit but you could check the diameters in the race manuals to see. But won't you spend 3-400 on a set of Gen 3 forks? You can buy full race tech internals for that if you don't mind a little work. With gold valves and the right spring rate they should be much better than a stock Gen 3 fork would be

I don't have a link, I just ordered mine through 303 cycle, 1 of our sponsors here. Check with 9r to 10r, I know he has Gen 3 ohlins forks in his Gen 1, not sure if he has any insight on the stock internals but he's pretty techy with this stuff

the fork tube plastic can be spaced ( lengthened but i wouldn't ).
the only thing you need is a heavier spring .
i have the same bike as you and looking for similar answers.
the gen 2 has 8.5 N/mm spring rate, too soft unless your a jockey.
you want a heavier spring which should be cheap where you are, the cartridge doesn't set the sag or weight carrying side of your front forks.
i can get springs here in aussie for about a 100 bucks so you should be able to get cheaper cause they come from there.
