Would and S5 front stationary gear fit S6?

Hey everyone,
so like the title says: Would and S5 front stationary gear fit S6? I'm putting my motor back together and just noticed that the front gear is really worn out right at the edge and would like to replace it but don't really want to per 600+ dollars for a new one. Thanks

There are some differences, I think the FD's has more hardy teeth and I think the bearing is pinned as well.

You can probably find a used one for a fraction of the new price. Put a new bearing in and there you go.

FD stationary gear has a set screw, the bearing is multi window and the thrust washers are larger diameter along the spacers.
