Will 1st gen forks and shock fit on 2nd gen?

I did a search, but couldn’t find anything about this. I have a 2016 Wee, and I just picked up a smoking deal on a fully farkled 2007 that I will be poaching some parts off before I sell it. It has emulators and sonic springs in the forks and an Elko rear shock with fairly low miles on it so, I’d like to rock that stuff on my later model bike. Does anyone know if I can do a direct swap? The only info I can find is that the 2nd gen rear shock is 1cm longer, which shouldn’t be a deal killer if everything bolts up.
Thanks in advance for answers!
