Gilles Tooling Chain Adjuster Instructions

Does anyone still have their Gilles Chain Adjuster Instructions? I can't seem to find mine. I am also looking for the instructions to install the Gilles Swing Arm Lifters.

I will look when I get home. Highly doubtful - they were horribly written as I remember it, and it was a bad printing also. Based on the lack of reason I don't think I kept them, but I do remember where the box is.

Why typing when it's easier copying and pasting picture links?

FWIW I mounted mine without any drilling and used the stock adjuster bolts as some have had issues.

I did not use the clamp pieces and rely on the axle to hold them in place.

I have used the lifters hundereds of times and adjusted the chain often,that said when you go to adjust your chain make sure everything is clean and free to move about the adjuster screws have a weak spot ad ti replacements are available.

also the O.D. of the oem washer is too large and needs some material removed.

Thanks for the info. I installed mine with the backing plates but wanted to go without. I have the Ti adjuster bolts and a Ti custom washer.
