Hi is the GT swing arm the same swing arm as used on the Yamaha XSR 900?

As iam looking for rear axle chain adjusters for my GT and if they are the same this opens up my options

NO it is not, i have both bikes. I forget the exact measurement but GT wheelbase is nearly 2" longer.

I have the LighTech chain adjusters on my GT, expensive but very high quality. I'm not a big fan of the cheap Chinese knock offs.

I looked up Lightech chain adjusters for you and this was listed for fitment.

This Product Fits:


Yamaha
FJ-09 2015, 2016, 2017
FZ-09 2014, 2015, 2016
Tracer 900 2019
Tracer 900 GT 2019, 2020
XSR900 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020
 
The 2017 and up MT09 isn't listed because they use that funky rear mud guard

Thee swingarms aren't the same overall (due to length as already mentioned), but the axle adjusters are the same. I have adjusters off an XSR900 on my 2020 Tracer GT.

So the above would be a perfect fit? Can't afford lightech so may give these a go

thanks again

Just a precaution, I bought a set of those for $25-$30, the center black part that slides to make the adjustment didn't have an index mark.  There was absolutely nothing to align to the measurement lines and numbers, they were useless.

I use the ones in photo below. Scales match up on each side... and accurate within 1mm when wheels/sprockets are aligned. With these things... I trust, but always verify. There is also a margin of error on the swingarm marks.

I've used a set of these...I agree, no index mark. Easily resolved with a punch/file. Or even a silver Sharpie.

@dpippin - These are much better than the stock axle blocks, the stock left block was prone to deforming where the flat axle end mates.
