I don't think so... If I recall the second gen bikes use larger tubes? Maybe if you swapped the triples out as well? I'm sure someone more versed in it will give you a more definitive answer.

That is correct, Stew!
One can install the larger forks, if one uses the Larger Gen2 Triple clamps.
But how are ya' gonna' mount the meters and the key switch?

So will a 1999 fit the 2007 and will the front brake just bolt right up to it

Thanks for your help
