08 suspension on an 06 300xcw

I am thinking of going from an 08 450xcf to a 06 300 xcw. 

Will my forks work? Do I need to move the triple also?

What about the shock. Is it the same length. I just recently had the valving done and really like the 450 suspension. (too bad the engine doesn't run)

forks will work. it may be alittle stiff for the weight of the 300. You don't need to swap triples I don't think. But it wouldn't hurt since I think the xcf triples are machined vs the cast xcw. If you do end up swaping fork you should swap the shock You will need to get the 08 shock shortened for the 06. The 08 shock Is slightly longer. and of course spring rate on the shock would need to be changed from the 06 shock. I recommend swapping the rear shock since it will get serviced when shortening it and I believe it has high speed compression vs the xcw shock
