Only thing I know for sure is that fork travel went from 200mm to 170mm on the cast wheel bikes

Sorry, Brad. Can't help because I'm not a Girly (with or without asterisks :icon_wink:) owner. Someone is sure to chime in.

Apart from the travel difference already mentioned I can help with 1 out of 3 of the above, air gap on 2002 bike is 107mm, on 2006 bike is 146mm

Run mine with Ohlins springs and 720cc of 15wt but I've sticky 17" front tyre to lean on not a 19" so pick what ever bones you want out of it.

Side by side comparisons.  The 2006 fork is 37-40 mm shorter than the 2002.  That will get the front end down plenty.

The lower casting is identical.
