06 front wheel used on 2007

I bought a front rim off an 06 600rr to use on my crashed 07 and the bearings and inner spacer are too big and the axel doesnt fit. Is there possibly a kit that I can buy that will come with the correct spacer and bearings or will this rim even work with the 2007 model? Please let me know what you think!!!

no mate it can't be done, the axle side of things is the least of your problems. the thing you won't find out till you try and bolt everything back together is that your brake calipers won't fit back on the bike. the hub on the 06 wheel is anout 9mm to wide for the 07, and the disc offset won't fit.

you need a 07 wheel, if it was a aftermarket wheel you could play with milling the hub down but the stock wheel has a in-built disc/rotor hat which will be gone if you mill 4.5 mm from each side, Stick it on ebay and find a 07 wheel.
