No don't think so Cheesy, pretty sure they stayed the same.
 
The 2 kits Ktech offer is Race only and race/road. Likely the road version differs because it will have features like bottom out protection and valve bypass whereas the race version probably does not as they assume you won't hit any pot holes etc.

Not sure if this will help but I've recently been tracking down a replacement set for my 99 Mille. The later Gen 2 type look identical but are actually a different size, 1 or 2mm difference at the yokes, so I would have thought the internals would be a different size too maybe.

Well it turns out that the kit i have is for an 01 on showa forks
as wouldn't fit the 98-00 believed to be what i have at the mo.

this has been backed up so far with info/details and showing my kit & details of why they wouldn't fit my current forks

it is belived that the internals are different from early rsv/falco to 01 on

but to get a definate answer i will be sorting another set of forks up to see if theory is right
