The larger rear axle from the new wheel wont fit your bike
The bearings do not interchange, so you can't swap bearing as suggested above
The 05 wheel uses the following bearings
Right Rear - 60/22-2RS - 22mm ID x 44mm OD x 12mm
Left Rear - 62/22-2RS - 22mm ID x 50mm OD x 14mm
Your 98 wheel uses the following bearings
6004 20mm ID x 42mm OD x 12mm
As you can see they will not interchange as the OD's are different
You could get some captive spacers made up to take up the bigger ID of the '05 bearings but there is no guarantee that the sprocket and disc will be in the right place to suit your bike
