The wheel is to wide for the swingarm. A 160 rubs the chain

There's a thread on Thumpertalk about putting F2 wheels on a YZ426. Gets very detailed, lots of good info.

the f2 rims are narrower than f3 so thats a start. I read somewhere along time ago that the cush drive had to be machined down a bit to get the chain aligned. It's been aloooooong time since I read about it. I cound be totally wrong. lol it has been done before though. check out the sites mentioned above.

You can do the F2 but it's a ton of work and machining.
Unless you have access the a machine shop and stock to turn spacers/make caliper brackets it's not worth it imo.

Maybe a Ninja 250/500 or CBR 250 wheel? They run a bit narrower...
