No, they changed to a 48mm fork in '04 so they won't fit in your clamps. If you have your clamps off of the 250 they will fit in the 450 steering head on the frame.

The triple clamp should be the same but the 2 stroke bike is 20+ pounds lighter than the 4 stroke so a revalve should be in order.

Not only are the 04 forks larger in diameter but the internals are much better than the older forks. I doubt you would be happy with the switch no matter how well the 01 forks are valved.

Probably, yes, if you use the '06 clamps. You may find a difference in the stem length, or the bearing diameters.
