No. The axle on the '06 is 22mm. The axle on '09 and up is 25mm. There are apparently no available bearings that will easily make that conversion, and no other simple fix has surfaced that I know of.

Noooooooo. I have a spare set of wheels that fits my 2006 YZ and 2011 WR wanted to swap them around . Just loaded the spare set on my truck to do tonight.

As Grey said, it wont work on the YZ but the WR might be a different story.
