Gilles Tooling AXB Chain Adjuster

Recommended Posts

What is up. Long time, no see. 

Sprained both my wrists a few months ago, it's also been chilly... so I had to put the moto life on hold. 

 

Purchased these chain adjusters after I had a really hard time adjusting the chain when I was putting a fresh chain on.

And don't know why I waited so long... but alas. I have them installed!

 

Shout out to @bellissimoto @pgeldz for hookin' me up on this pair as well as a pair for my other bike. Since they're straight from Gilles.. they took 4 weeks to get shipped out. 

 

Got them with the red accent to go with the small hints of red I already have on the bike. IMG_3026.JPG.38d76480d4b1a35db4ca3e954628c530.JPG

Welcome back, injuries suck! I ordered the exact same part from bellissimoto two weeks 3 days and 7 hours ago, the wait is killing me! 

 

The site says it's not in stock so, I  knew I was going to have to be patient. I emailed first to make sure the order would be filled.

Glad to see you're back on the road!

 

The Gilles chain adjusters look great!

 

We have more on the way, and should be here soon.  Just received word that our shipment is supposed to be here late next week!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed there are no delays :)

Don't feel bad. I ordered them on 8-31 and still haven't received them. It's cold up here in Northern Michigan and I'm not riding anytime soon so the wait is no big deal.

Just so everyone knows why there is a delay...

 

Gilles is the OEM manufacturer for many of the parts on the new BMW S1000RR, as well as ALL the BMW Aftermarket HP RACE billet parts, in addition to Yamaha UK Billet Accessories.

 

Because of the new BMW S1000RR, Gilles had to ramp up their facility and production to meet BMW's demand, and added 13 additional CNC Machines to supply them.  Good new is that now that most of that work is done, it is expected that Gilles will have the capacity to shorten delivery times significantly in the coming months.

 

Hang in there guys...their products are worth the wait.

So, are delivery times being delayed further, or does this just explain our current wait? I appreciate the communication either way.

It was an explanation in general about Gilles.  I got word this morning that the chain adjusters will be ready by the end of this week, and will be in our next shipment.

I was getting antsy about the wait for my part, and I called and talked to Paul @bellissimoto. Wow the customer service here is top notch. I usually am hesitant to engage with actual human beings, I usually prefer to communicate electronically. He was great though, he spent a lot of time and dropped a lot of knowledge on me. Super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.It was great I have not talked on the phone like that since I was a teenager! lol
