    Curious what's the difference in the forks between the generations?

    Believe there is a length difference on 06-07 to 08 up

    after 2007 the forks were ~10mm longer in stock form.
    If you change to different carts on the earlier forks... you get the additional length & then some.
    My 2007 has ohlins 25mil carts & they are ~20mm longer than a stock 08+ fork.

    2016 r6 forks are kyb. So your ohlins parts from your 08-15, will NOT work in a set of 16 forks. Of course the 2017 forks are hand me down r1 forks.

    Thats twice that yamaha for one year did stupid shit with their forks. Earlier in 05 I think it was they did it also.

    Forks arrived today. Excellent transaction, shipped when he promised and packaging was incredible. Clearly took time and effort to make sure it arrived in perfect shape. Thank you Stephan, feel free to mention me in any sale as reference. Thank you again.
