Wrong Driveshaft????

Soo I took my rhino to the local Yamaha Dealer yesterday to have my doors put on, ( which was freakin sweet cause they were free!) and the tech that installed the doors called me to let me know it was done, ok, Then he says that on the drivers side, my rhino has the wrong driveshaft?: wtf! it looks exactly the same as the other side, yes the bearing is beyond shot and the wheel is loose, but a different driveshaft? is that even possible?

I have no idea, weve been working 10hr days and havent had time to take the front end apart, I also have an electrical issue, the guy I got it from had used a jumper wire from the battery to a red wire on the connector at the starter solenoid, thus my 4x4 solenoid wont work. I know its wrong but I have spent hours looking for the problem and have come up empty handed, if you disconnect the jumper wire it has no power past the solenoid

the 04's were different than the others in the front end, check the part numbers on yamaha site and you will see this. 05-07 are the same, 08 up rears are different as well
