954 front wheel

You'd have to replace the bearings, seals and spacer to fit the 25mm axle.
Discs are the same pattern.

Yes, the RC wheel is what you asked about.
The bearings would probably fit but I'd recommend new bearings - they're not expensive.
The bearing spacer I would expect to fit but measure it to be sure. If it's too short the bearings will bind and if it's too long the bearings won't fit fully into each side of the wheel. You could make some shims to go into the wheel under the bearings if the spacer is longer than you need but I probably wouldn't shim the spacer if it's too short.
If you can get somebody to measure the width of the bearings in each of the wheels that'll tell you the spacer length without having to disassemble them. You could alternatively make the RC axle fit the 954 forks but I'd have to look at what that would involve.
With all modfications I always recommend taking your own measurements before spending your money regardless of what anybody (including me) tells you will work. It's your money and only you know how much fabrication you're comfortable with.

Re: 954 front wheel

is there any performance benefit to this swap or is this just cosmetic or replacement necessity? i wouldve thought the 954 wheels are lighter?

From another thread the 954 front wheel is around 200gms lighter than the RC51 wheel.
