Want to upgrade '97 CBR900RR front wheel to 17 inch

I have a '97 CBR900RR and want to upgrade to a 17 inch front wheel. I noticed that a 2000 RC51 had a similar 6 spoke wheel up front. Is it a 17 inch? If so, is it compatable with the CBR so that I could upgrade. I want a 6 spoke wheel in order for the bike to look as stock as possible. Can anyone help? Thank U.

I'm not sure if it is a direct swap, but I have heard of people that have swapped RC51 front ends on to the 919 (the 919 has 17").
I do know the CBR600F1 front end is a much easier swap to the 919. It can't hurt to look at those too. The 600 and even 919 parts are probably easier to find.
