Question forks fitment

hi there,
I need to change the left fork leg (got some grooves that are to deep to sand down) and I cant find a used fork for my 03 rc51, was wondering if I can use the fork leg off a 2000-2001 model instead? ( they are two different part numbers)

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think they interchange.
Try contacting RC-DEVIL.
There's a RC51 Parts Depot on Facebook if you do that.
Might try Speedzilla too.

they will "bolt up" interchangeably, however its not suggested as the actual fork/valving etc is different for the SP1 vs. SP2

plenty of reasonably priced used SP2 forks on ebay ...
