08-12 RMZ 450 Forks in a 16-17

Not sure if its been asked here or not, can't find anything that has a definite answer. I currently have an 09 RMZ 450 that I was able to pick up cheap. I want to uprage to a newer model (don't wanna spend the money for an 18 right now) but I hate air forks. I was wondering if the 09 forks are a direct fit into a 16-17 model or not? I think the triple clamps should be the same, just worried about the bottom linking up... Ive looked into the air to spring conversion kits but I have my suspension on the 09 valved and set perfect and would love to be able to put it in a newer model. 

I am not positive about the 09, but for my 11 I needed the 11 triple clamps and a 15-17 steering stem pressed in to the 11 clamp.

2011 forks are very similar to the 09 forks. You should be fine with the stem swap.
