Fauxtech (AKA chinese lightech) chain adjusters

OK, so I made the name up. I got bored and decided to buy a set of GSXR1000 Chinese knock off lightech adapters. They are supposedly made of aircraft grade aluminum. The machining seem solid and everything fits. I remember reading that we basically have the same swingarm from a GSXR and I notice we use the same axle block so I gave it a shot.

Probably have solid black as well?

Look good & time will tell about the Chinese aluminum, heck................their air force seems to be doing ok
The Jet's minimum stress is much greater than the stress on these (that's the way i would think positive about them).

have fun!

I actually asked what grade aluminum and they said all of their products are a minimum of 6061 but if it is a high stress area they will use higher grades of aluminum. Even if it was 6061 that would be plenty for this application..... they pretty much had a rainbow of colors
