Gilles Chain Adjusters?

So I'm a sucker for good deals on eBay. I bought some gold Gilles Chain Adjusters and the instructions for those things sucked . I mostly went by what the pics looked like online and in the instructions.

Any opinions on these? Anybody got some on thier bike u can post a pic of so that I can make sure I installed them correctly.

crappy picture click on it to make it bigger

U see where the original tensioner bolt is...is that suppose to be flush with the bike? cuz its not...it cant be flush and allow the inside bracket (two bolts towards the back) to go thru and catch the back bracket....just doesnt seem right...tomorrow I will get better pics of the back and side...

I read that these adjusters are not for liter+ bikes...there are some threads on other forums where they failed on the left side (chain side) due to too much HP/TQ


in the site you posted the KTS style looks like its flush up front...but thats not my bike so maybe its different for each one

So my chain kept getting loose all weekend out at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and MSRH. everything is loctited except the back adjuster bolt which I don't think is suppose to be. It was the left side with the axel nut that kept moving. Anybody have any ideas on why? Maybe my zx6r has way to much power
