will zx14 forks work?

I read a while back that ZX14 forks are the same size and have the proper amount of travel to work in the RC. Does anybody have any info on this? True? False? As always, thanks for any info.

There are a ton of forks on ebay right now for not too much money, it would be a good, cheap way to get radial mounted brakes. Some of the forks are going for less than it would cost to get radial adapters from any of the people selling those.

I've heard ZX14 forks will work, but that's hearsay until valid measurements are made.

Not sure how they are sprung, but if they are that cheap it might be worth trying out. You could ask a couple of the ebay sellers for a couple measurements for comparison. Are you planning on running a ZX14 front wheel/axle too, as getting the spacing right could be tricky.

Also the caliper to rotor center offset as well.
