Need Technical help for Frt wheel???

Has anyone tried to convert a 1000S model to radial calipers by changing frt forks to 2007 style forks? I bought a set of Senna forks that are radial.But dont know what all I need besides the frt axle asy?? Needed to know if bearings and spacers are different? I have a printout from MV. They are saying that aTambo frt axle is also the same as a 1000R? Or has anyone installed the new brembo 1000R wheels on a type S with success? Below is the attachment I got from MV. The illistration on the uppper Left hand conner is for a tambo. But they claim its the same. The items in questions are number 1 (includes 2,3) and the spacers number 18? Any imput would be great.
Thanks

i can't help you out, still wanted to say good work....looks like it's the last non-black bit on your bike.... I believe all they've said was true.... I've also thought that the Tambo axle was the same as the R models

I think you just need the two spacers (18) and new axle and nut (6&7) heel bearings are the same, your wheel will take the new axle
