CBR1000RR forks on a SP1?

Hi guys

Does anyone know if the forks from a 08-11 CBR1000RR would fit onto a SP1?

Reason I ask is that I have replaced the forks on my CBR1000RR for Ohlins, and the forks I took off, and would like to fit have Ohlins piston kit, Ohlins springs, and Ktech flow control valves.

I know these would work well if they fit, and I also have a set of the original callipers from the CBR1000RR.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks RC Devil

It was just a thought as the forks are laying there just now, before I sell them.

Why not just upgrade the parts in your SP1 forks?
