08 & 09 rear wheels

Can a 08 rear wheel be made to fit on an 09 bike?

Well, anything is possible if you get creative enough. If the distance between the sprocket and disk are the same between the years, then you may be able to find bearings and seals that are the same outside diameter as an 08 with the inside diameter of an 09. Use the center spacer and wheel spacers from an 09 and it should fit. An easier option may be to use an 08 axle and axle blocks with the 08 wheel on the 09 if you can fit them in.

rear brake caliper mounting on 09 is smaller but can be drilled out.
