r1 front end conversion questions

i have been doing a lot of research on this and have found this thread regarding the swap.


i am familiar with the overall procedure and that is not an issue. My question is in regard to the fitment of a 02 r1 front end versus the standard 01 r1 that i continue to see everyone doing. i have the opportunity to get an 02 r1 front end in excellent condition for one heck of a price.

so the question is... are the fork, triple tree (upper+lower) mounting brackets the same as the 01 r1? or will i need to swap the whole front wheel and brake assembly as well?
