I bought a set and when I went to install them I noticed a few small burrs in the right side bolt tip. I didn’t think they were big enough to do any damage but I was wrong. About 4 turns in it tightened up and I shouldn’t have went for that next turn because it cross threaded the swing arm and wouldn’t come out without breaking the nut. Yes I had the axle bolt loosened all the way and the bike was on a stand. I had the rep call lightech and try to work something out but they blamed it on me and said I tried to loosen it without loosening the axle nut and wouldn’t refund anything. Couldn’t win with the manufacturer so I purchased another set thinking there’s no way something could be wrong with 2 of them. So I have the bike in the stand, axle nut and washer removed and the adjusters installed. Now the adjustment nut won’t stay tight to the bolt which means I can’t adjust the axle back. This product is a complete waste of $220 ($440 in my case) that I have ever purchased!! Do not buy this product unless you want problems

I have been on the fence on buying these for a while due to price, but these adjusters are awesome! It makes adjusting the chain for different sprockets very simple and more accurate. I will say unless you plan on changing tires & sprockets often, this is probably not worth it. However if you have the $ to spend, buy them from Motosport, they have the best prices and fast shipping!
First it is expensive! However, it's a well made, looks really good and it functions.
I want my chain to be straight through the sprockets, and set-up with the right tension. This tool does all that and looks good doing it. The marks are spot on (I used my calipers to check). The click adjuster is perfect and you can reverse...to a point. Yes I know I do really love these adjusters and they look so SEXY!
Was it worth the price? IMO...yes! But who the he!! am I...lol
I got these because I broke the spool mounts of my swing arm in a low side at a track day and wanted to use the lifters for a track stand. they are thicker than the stock chain adjusters. this makes the axle bolt to short to get the whole axle nut and cotter pin in. you can only get about 3/8 of a inch of thread on the nut. After about 10 emails with pictures of the original and lightech adjusters taking the adjusters on and off 3 times they said its ok to leave it like that. I don't know about you but I think Suzuki engineers know what they are doing. Emails were also a problem because it is an italian company and alot gets lost translation. Even if I thought it was safe my track day club would never let it pass tech inspection. I told them that and they said i could buy a axle from a 2008 it is a little longer about $110 oem, If i am paying this much money I want them to fit. If I wanted cheap junk I would have brought the ones made in China for 1/3 the price. I will never buy another lightech product again. Also the markings for adjusting are just painted on when you loosen the axle nut the socket rubs the paint right off making them useless. Expensive cheap junk in my opinion.. Don't waste your time and money.
These lightech chain adjusters are awesome once installed and set you can change tire out and just pop back in and if you need to make adjustments you need no tools just your fingers to turn knobs. Highly recommend it if your a do it yourselfer.
We have the LighTech Chain Adjuster Kit available to fit the 2017 FZ09, but we don't yet know if the 900 Tracer GT uses the same swingarm and axle as the FZ09.
