Wich forks should I get

Hi everyone!

I have the possibility to get my hands on a set of Yamaha YZ400F forks + triple clamp from 1999, but are unsure if they would suffice for the Dakar conversion...
The -99 YZ400 dry weight is stated to be 104kg and the -06 Dakar weighs 177kg dry. Its clear to me IŽll have to change springs and oil, but were the forks that good in -99 or should I wait for something newer?

My other option is a fork + triple clamp from a KTM 625 sxc -05, but then I have to turn down the stem a bit to fit the BMW bearings...

Please help me choose
