I did a full upgrade to the stock forks with Racetech .85 springs, Emulators, and pre-load adjusters. I am happy with the results, but it depends on your riding style if it is even necessary or not for you to go through the work.
As for a full fork swap, I think I read somewhere that a guy swapped out the entire front end to a CBR600 front end including brakes and rim. Not sure what year 600 he used though. Will have to try a little searching around and see if I can find the thread.
