Adjust the S1000RR chain in style

Wed, 11 Aug 2010

Some fancy new chain adjusting components from LighTech. The press release says:

"LighTech srl, have really gone to town on BMW's S1000RR, with a programme of over 50 products planned this year.

Lightechs chain adjuster sets for the S1000RR have just been released. Precision engineered from superstrong but lightweight Ergal 7075 and 6082 specification aluminium alloy. Ergal is exceptionally strong, with a strength comparable to steel making for an ideal material for these chain adjusters.

Designed for easy adjustment and an easy fit, and once fitted chain adjustment is simply a matter of turning the end adjuster nuts. To make sure your adjustment both sides is absolutely spot-on, Lightech have cleverly incorporated a 0-40mm gauge each side, and better still, the adjuster knobs have built in detents which click when turned. 100% accurate chain adjustment every time...and better tools required!

Available in a choice of anodised colours - Rosso Red, Solid Black, Indigo Blue, or Gold - all with silver centre bar and stainless steel fittings. And with Ergal having a higher corrosion resistance than other alloys they are made to last."

The chain adjuster sets retail at £195.50 inc vat for the pair. Other products visible are the aluminium swing arm spools (Small £16, Large £24.55 a pair) and the rear axle nut in Ergal 7075 (£21.60 in a variety of colours)
