yz490 conversion

Has anyone put new forks on a yz 490 that would be willing to give me some advise?? Someone told me the WR 500 forks and triples would swap out.................?????

Don't have a direct answer, however, if you look at suppliers of steering head bearings, if the numbers are the same for both there's a good chance thy will fit. You could also look up the PNs of the steering head bearings for each on Yamaha's website. The only potential problem could be steering stem length. But you could press one out and the other in if you had to. I'm aware of people swapping all sorts of forks.
