2004 R1 forks and wheels on 00 RC51?

Got some spare parts laying around and got to doing some thinking.

Do you guys think the parts off the R1 would be an upgrade? The wheels are lighter according to my scale by nearly 2lb each. The forks have radial mounts and i do have the radial brake components. Ill have to check fork diameter but if its the same...do you guys think the forks are on par with the RC's,..well as good or better?

If the diameter is the same i will have a direct swap and just have to see if the rear wheel will fit in without a lot of work.

Okay both have 43mm forks and spring rates real close..basically same rate .93 vs .95

So the front end would be a direct swap.

Now just to see if the rear wheel would fit in without much hassle. I see both have a caliper up top so that is a plus alreay.
