Even if the shocks have the same length, they will have different spring and damping rates. The wet weights and wheel rates of the pair of bikes are quite different.

I used to have an '00 ZX-9R and was told by a top A grade rider that the ZX-9 is much better with a standard shock out of an '00 ZX-6R. I assume it wouldn't work as well the other way around.

Re-reading the original post, if the Ohlins shock fits, you could buy a new spring of the correct rate and get the shock re-valved. If the shock is cheap enough to start with, it could be worth it. Maybe you should check at a local dealership, wrecker or somewhere like:
