I just bumped in to a fork set from a 07 crf on ebay.
No question - CRF forks are excellent. I personally just did not want USD forks (remember my email? I like "sleepers") and I am not good enough to notice difference in how WP Extreme work vs. CRF forks.

But brakes...CRF brakes are offroad brakes. And all limitations of them are + point offroad and big problem on road. Stock CRF brake disk is tiny, you will need 300-320 disk. That means relocating caliper. That means making adaptor... So why would you need CRF brake if you can not bolt it directly to forks?
That's my reasons :)
