Swingarm to axle interface

Wondering if anyone who has a Sp2 also has a 08-12 CBR1000RR or CBR600RR. I'm curious as to the dimensions (on the CBR) of the slot at the rear of the swingarm as far as depth and height and length from the front of the slot to the end of the swing arm.. This is the slot that the axle adjusters slide in. I know the adjusting bolts are the same thread length between both models, the axle nut is the dia. also. I'm trying to see if a set of the Gilles TCA adjusters can be adapted for use on the Sp2.

Thanks...

take this how you may,

but those adjusters are a waste of money, they are heavier, more complicated, and weaker than the original setup. and how often do you really adjust your chain?

i had a set on my last rc51 that i purchased for the lifters, i broke off a spool, that's how i justified it. honestly they offered no benefit over the original setup aside from looking fancy.
