Anyone know if the 98 ST2s had the same front axle size as the 95 Monsters (M900)?

TIA

I don't believe so. I think they went the 25mm axle on the ST2.

Thanks Alex. I'm looking at a front wheel as a track spare that is supposed to be off the ST2. If it does in fact have the bigger ID bearings(waiting to hear back from the seller), do you or does anyone else have a ballpark figure for what changing out the bearings would run just for the parts?

ST2 has hollow 25mm axle.

If you change the bearings, make sure you make some spacers for inside the wheel to support the bearings.

Higgie has some experience with this I believe.

The bearings are not that much (about $60 I think).

the bearings are cheap..but i couldnt fine a 25mm in the same thickness as the 20.

fixing this required some custom machining work (courtesy of Norm)

Thanks guys. The seller confirmed the wheel was for a 25 mm axle, so I'll pass on it. I'm just casually watching for a spare front to come along on the market to use for a track wheel. I already scored a rear wheel, and I figure that's the more important one for keeping a fresh track tire on to pass tech.

Yeah, thanks. I also recently scored some pre 99 adjustable SS forks to bolt right up to the bike - just have to change the oil and check the springs out before I swap them onto the bike. :D
