Marchesini Cast Magnesium Wheel Compatibility...

Hello All:
I recently purchased a 17x6 Marchesini cast magnesium rear wheel for a 2002 Suzuki GSXR 1000. Now Im having trouble locating a 17x3.5 front wheel of the same 5 spoke design as the rear. I do know and understand the physics of cast magnesium vs forged magnesium vs cast/forged aluminum alloy... BUT ... I MUST TRY THESE WHEELS ON MY BIKE AT LEAST ONCE TO SEE HOW BETTER THEY ARE SUPPOSSED TO BE... BUT... Like I said i cannot find a front wheel... So.... I was wondering... Will a 17x3.5 Ducati wheel fit the bill with a sprocket and bearings change out?... Or am I totally off and wrong here? Any help would be greatly appreciated... Also... if anyone has one for sale...PM me with a price... TY for your time In this matter...

TY...

TY Flying Duc...
But being that it is already powder coated... I ASSUME that the wheel you have is aluminum... Im looking for a cast/forged magnesium wheel.... BUT... In case I am wrong and the wheel in question is indeed a magnesium variant... How much would you be selling it for?

What exactly are you expecting to get out of these wheels on that machine? Do you honestly think you will notice a difference? How much better are they supposed to be...in your opinion of course.
