Just wondering if a 2002 426 rim will fit the 2004 YZ450 for the rear. Same sprocket and brake rotor?

IT is NOT all the same.

The 02 will be the same hub. The 98-01s use a thinner hub. The 02s use a wider hub, lighter spokes than the previous years.

If you get an older than 02 wheel on a 02+ bike, you will need the older bikes spacers also.
