I think it's just the fork legs though. The steering stem changed between generations, such that the triples aren't interchangable.

Whoops.....didn't think about first gen/second gen. Duhhhhhh.....I'm awake. :)

Although they may be interchangable generation to generation since they're both 41mm - they are different forks entirely. Dunno if old calipers will mate properly.

Yah, the 2nd gen forks are a different make and have different internals at least. I think the 2nd gen are showa (IIRC) dont know what the first gen was.

S vs. standard doesn't matter, but first gen vs. second gen does. Second gen forks won't work with your first gen wheel and axle.
