Some people like the 929/954 front end and some don't. All the Dallas guys hate it and say it sucks. They keep stock f4i front end with heavier oil, new springs, etc.
But there are more people that prefer the 929/954 front end actually. Even Darius prefers the 929/54 front end on the f4i, along with tons of others. I have all the parts for mine now, going to find out soon.
Get better soon and I'll have some stock f4i front end parts if you decide to go that route.

What does the 929/954 front buy you, larger rotors, inverted forks, and clipons under the triple tree? Do you gain a radial master cylinder in the conversion?
Before I had my front shocks rebuilt/tuned I was looking into the conversion, but the components needed was a little out of my range of patience to collect on.

I'd respring it and just service the forks. If you want to get really serious I'd modify the compression and rebound valving to make it more controllable, so that way it compresses in a more linear fashion as you load it while doing an endo and then rebounds controllably at the end of it.
No radial master cylinder, typically when changing from standard to inverted forks you'll gain more weight, but also a bit more rigidity.
Just to clarify, I attended the same school as Andy, and while it was last year that I did so, I've been building winning racebike suspensions for almost 23 years.
The reason I attended the school was because despite 23 years of building suspension I would hear from some noob; "Well he's not Race Tech certified"
Billy Weise with WRW, who has more AMA experience than most people I know, attended the same school with me at the same time, for pretty much the same reasons.
