Hi guys. Does anyone seen or installed those fancy chain adjusters, on the 899? I've seen many videos installing one of those lightech chain adjusters on severa bikes, but never on our 899...does anyone thinj thats doable on our bike?
Thanks.

I would respond by asking: why would you want to do that? The stock spacers seem fine to me, nice, compact, integrated with the axle, perfect fit on the swingarm... what's wrong with them?

My friend, with all do respect, I didn't ask for a personal opinion (but Thanks, anyway). But the answer to your question is: it's a matter of taste, as in any cosmetic change that anyone makes on his bike. But, in this case, althouth it may seem a question of adding a little "blink" to the bike, it also makes adjusting the chain so mutch easier.
Again, Thank you so mutch for your personal opinion, but i was looking for a "technical" one.
Cheers

I actually didn't make any comment - positive or negative - about the LighTech adjusters, I was simply asking why were you looking to replace the stock ones as they seem to work quite well. And since it's you who is coming here for help - just a week ago you asked for the Service Manual and I gave you the link - you might want to reconsider your attitude... even if you don't get the answer you want, remember that we're all trying to help when we can, how we can, in our free time.

Anyways, back to the main subject: LighTech chain adjusters don't seem to be available for the 899. I do not have direct experience with them (so I'm giving you a personal opinion) but even if you find a model that fits precisely on the swingarm, I doubt you would be able to make it work because on the 899 the rear axle is threaded into the right-side adjuster block (see photo I posted above).

Taking the risk of digressing... It's not a matter of atitude, honestly... Your first reply was a bit "agressive" and not asked for (sorry, in advance, if i miss understood it) , as it was the "first" paragraph of you second reply (I'm trying my Best not to digress... 🤔). But The second paragraph of your Last reply, now that's the "money shot"! That's exactly what i was looking for, an answer with technical info and knowlege that i don't have, not even close. But once again, as i did on that 1st request for that service manual, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE SHARE!
To end this, i'm Honestly sorry that you've questioned my attitude, because your very far away from the truth.
I humbly thank you for your time, and for all your accurate information!

If you’re not asking for personal opinion why you asking ? With the attitude you show here you must to know the answers of all the questions… The easiest thing to do was to get to the manufacturer website and see if they offer that part for our bikes. So next time you ask and someone take time to even look at you post don’t start with that first sentence. I thought was rude. There are a lot of nice people that are willing to help as 120CCPM already did to you so don’t ruin it for everybody Mr. Digress
