I don't think so tbh, think they might be different internally.

Ok. Seen some on Ebay, wondered why they would go to such a difference for same bike but wanted to be sure before I purchased them.

No they are completly different fork lowers

Different both internally, as the fork internals and fixings are different  :151:
and externally as the front brake calipers  / mounting arrangments changed on the latter Mk3 models  :notsure:

So to be more specific I have a 2016 versus and the fork tubes are beyond rechroming.

I have seen on Ebay some fork tubes advertised for the versys 2015/16/17 but listed as coming from a CAF.  Is this listing then incorrect?  Is the CAF model an earlier type.

I wanted to strip my forks and put these tubes in place of the rusty ones.

Thanks

Looking at part numbers the 2016 is the same as 2015.

edit the CAF is the 2010 model. I know they completely changed the suspension between the 2010 and 2016. My opinion is that they are very unlikely to work.

Dom81, what do you mean by beyond rechroming ? i got a fork leg rechromed a couple of years ago and it was very pitted.
