I'm new to thumper talk - just got a YZ400F a few weeks ago.
I picked up a new wheel from ebay... I plan to ride in the sand a lot, so I don't want to have keep switching tires from my paddle to my dirt tire, so I picked up a complete wheel. The add said it was pulled off a 99 YZ400F, so I didn't think much of it, I figured it fit without any problem.
The problem -- My axle doesn't fit through the ebay wheel. My axle is to thick to fit. I also noticed it's a 18 inch wheel, and not 19. So I'm starting to doubt that it's really from a YZ400F, and I think it's probably from a WR400. Will I be able to repack the barrings, and replace the collars and make a bigger opening for my axel? Or am I screwed?
Here's pictures --

Please let me know if I need to demand a refund on this wheel, or what it'll take to make it work.
