Angry any way a 05 & up rear wheel to fit a 04

I was wondering if anyone ever put 05 or newer wheels on a 04 1200 xl custom? I purchased an 06 wheel set 13 spoke cast and now notice the rear axle looks different. Are the rims the same with different bearings? I needed a rear rim due to peeling bad and warranty over when I started to notice.

You''ll need to either a 1 inch axle, or to have a 3/4" bearing pressed into the wheel.
