Ducati 1098 front end swap to 900RR

I recently picked up a full Ohlins front end off a 09 1098 that I plan to put on my 99 900RR. It's a far stretch but I'm hoping that I can just take the stem from the 900 and press it on to the 1098 lower and it bolts right on. Figured I'd go fishing 1st for some feed back. I'm sure this isn't a disireable mod because the front end is worth more then the bike but I dig the concept.

I'm sure you can press the stem into the lower clamp but I'd be surprised if it didn't require some machining first to fit.
