rear wheel

Would a 2006 XL rear wheel work on my 2005 XL?

Really??? Because the 04 had the smaller axle. Maybe the difference was made up in the bearing size?????

I dunno

Yes, but 3/4" and 1" bearings are as simple as a swap, with utilizing the same internals.

No big deal.

So, what I get is: the '05 and '06 have 1" so it's fine? My rear wheels
is badly corroded.

If they both have the 1" bearings, life's grand. If not, then take the wheel to an Indy shop, have them yank the 3/4" bearings (which it likely doesn't have) and install 1" sealed bearings. The whole deal should be much labor ($50-60) and the bearings.

IF all that's necessary. I think the wheel is going to be a direct swap after you mount your rotor, sprocket and tire.
