F2 -> F3 fork upgrade...

hey all,
since this forum is new (just like me) i figured i'd go ahead and confuse everyone on this board too.
i've got a 94 F2, with the cartridge forks. getting a race-prepped (revalved, resprung) set of F3 forks for cheap. i know that i can just switch out the innards and be done with it. but, i'd like to be able to run the larger F3 rotors for (slightly) better braking performance. but i'd also like to keep the stock F2 speedo pickup. does anyone have any experience with such a mod, or any ideas for me (other than the bike speedo trick...).
thanks in advance.
ride safe!

Someone makes oversized semi-floating rotors that'll fit the F2 wheel...I think it's Braking but I am not 100% sure. Apart from going that route, there is no way to use the F3 front wheel with your F2 speedo drive, apart from some creative machine work.
