Rear axle inner diameter

Anyone know the rear axle inner diameters? I just got a set of Pit Bull TRS pins direct from PB and both sides are too small. They aren't open until Monday to check with them.

On an SP2, 14.5mm I.D. on the threaded side, 19mm I.D. on the non-threaded side.

That's what the pins measure. Is SP1 ID different? I thought they were the same. And what the hell axle do I have....

Update: I removed the axle and found that both end had been smashed slightly, likely from pounding the axle in/out with a non-rubber mallet. A little Dremel clean-up and the pins slide right in.

I would like to take this opportunity the mention how awesome Pit Bull is. Their products will out last any bike, and they have great customer service. I ordered the pins Thursday and had them on my doorstep Saturday.

I would also like to thank Riders Discount. I normally order everything through them, but they recommended going straight to PB, since I needed them faster than they might be able to get them to me. Excellent service as usual.

Always put a light coating of grease on the axles and swingarm pivot bolt (if removed) to prevent corrosion and make removal/install easier.
I have no idea what issue the prior owner had, but taking a sledge to the axle is a symptom of a larger problem.
Not good on bearing races either. Tends to destroy them.
