anything? The 929/954 and SP2 chain adjusters are the same.

I looked on my spare swing arm...no dice.

I am eventually going to pick up a set of these.

If that's the case then, you've just verified what I was wondering. DRIVEN's website says they make axle block sliders for the 954rr but when I talked to them about compatability, they said they never had a RC to test with. That could be an option too. They look great and are well built.

yeah, thanks. I'm more looking for actual adjusters, like the Gilles Tooling ones.

I would think those blocks would still fit though.

Be careful. Had Gilles chain adjusters on my R1. They almost always give a bit after a ride. Not worth it IMHO.

Really?.....hmmm never have heard anything like that before, but is good to know. I wonder if anyone else has had issues with them, if so, i will probably just stick to OEM.....even though it is pretty damn hard getting everything aligned perfectly. Have any tricks for that?

sorry John sometimes i'm a bit slow, so basically this insures that the 2 sprockets and chain are in perfect alignment and therefore the real wheel would have to be straight, otherwise the rear sprocket and chain would be off, right?

This looks like a pretty useful tool to have around, especially if you do a lot of sprocket changes.
