What to do with front suspension

Recently bought a 98 900rr for cheap from a guy and its not complete. I found out that he started to put a front end on it from a 00 929rr. so after buying calipers for a 900rr i realized that they dont work due to mounting since the 929rr are inverted forks. the wheel is the factory 16" from the 900 as are the rotors. I am wondering should I get the 900rr forks and just go back to original or find the right calipers and get rotors from a 929? i am sure the newer inverted forks are better but its gonna be more of a pain in the ass to go that route. What would you do?

Re: What to do with front suspension

its probably cheaper to get 900 forks, the rotars and calipers will set you back a few hundred

I would personally stick to the 929 forks, and get a 929 front wheel for it.

You can still mount them but you'll need to space or modify them to fit, or fabricate some caliper mounting brackets.
Get a 929/954/1000RR wheel, 929/954 discs and 929/954/F4i/RC51 calipers.
