919 Fork Swap

Hey guys, sorry if this is a dumb question that has already been answered somewhere. I tried to find an answer and do my homework, but I couldn't find any info answering these questions.

After the weather turns, I'm going to do the f4I fork swap on my 919. Will the 919 front wheel and brake set up (rotor and calipers) bolt up to the f4i forks?

Thanks!!!!

Somewhat true. Heli made some brackets to fit the 919 fender to the f4i forks. You might be able to convince him to make them again

Mine are either .925 or .95 I can't remember. They are a bit on the stiff side for solo commuting but great for 2 up and track use for my weight.

I am on my stock 04 forks. w/ oil level +30mm .. its slightly soft but works out for my lighter 165ish lb weight. Plus i am a cheap ass.

yeah most definitely. Might consider as well some extra oil height. +20-25mm of oil ads a little extra stiffness in the last part of the compression which helps as well.
