Default F3 wheel swap question

I've dug through several forums and just can't find a specific answer for this, so here goes. I'm upgrading an old VFR, and I already have a set of F2 wheels in the garage. I have the opportunity to buy an F3 front end that should bolt right onto the bike, but my question is whether the F2 wheel will bolt onto the F3 forks (this is more of a hub size question). I know I'll have to use the F2 brake rotors since the brakes are totally different between the F2 & F3 bikes, so all I need to know is whether the F3 forks will bolt right onto the F2 front wheel, or if there's more work involved.

Thanks!

I'm almost positive the F2 wheel will physically bolt to the F3 forks if you use the F2 spacers/speedo drive.
I'm not sure if F3 spacers are the same as the speedo drive side.
The problems as you already know is the brakes.
I believe the mounting points on the forks are different, so hooking up the brake will be a pain.
An F3 front wheel would be the simplest and cleanest way for sure.
And you should be able to find one fairly cheap.
