99zx6R front end on 95zx600?
does any one know if this will fit?
the bearings for the frame are the same, anyone know if it will bolt up?

1) Length of the stem. If it's different then the simple solution is usually to press your existing stem out of your triples and into the newer triples. Bonus here is that bearings are not an issue -just use the same size as stock (switch to tapered rollers if you havent already).
2) Offset -if it's different you might actually make your handling worse.
3) Length of forks - if different you could have issues with clearance, and changes in geometry than could also adversely affect your handling
4) Steering stops -are they located in a suitable spot so that you're not going to hit the tank.
There's certainly more things to consider, but if you're swapping the entire front end the actual amount of work to make it happen is small. It's the details and careful thought required to make it a *good* swap that might take more effort and research.
i have 99 zx6r front forks in great shape if you don't have a set
