Can someone who has their front wheel off do me a favor and measure the front axle?

Large diameter straight section: diameter and length
Small diameter straight section: length

I'm trying to find a donor axle for a wheel swap and I think a WR axle may work for me. I just don't want to buy an axle unless I'm reasonably suspicious that it will fit.

I'm trying to run a mechanical speedo, well an enduro computer actually, on my CR500.

Sweet, thank you very much.

Does the 163mm length include the threaded section?

No, the 163mm section is without the threads.

Looks like its not quite long enough. Same problem I have with the CRF axle. I guess I will modify the stock axle.
