How to install Gilles chain adjustors?

So I recieved my gilles chain adjustors yesterday but the instructions are all in German! Anyone have some pics or be able to tell me how to install these? I do not plan on using the GP stands either. It looks like I just have to replace the stock bolt adjustor and screw in the gilles? I see something about drillling the swingarm but I'm not a big fan of this. I'm hoping I can just replace the adjustor bolt and slide the axle through?

Holy shit I'm a idiot

from all the pics ive seen they looked pretty straightfoward. i thought you just replaced that axle collar, bolt, and nuts with the gilles pieces. i didnt think you reused any stock parts except the nut the axle screws into. let us know how it goes, good luck.

Thats what I thought until I found the bag with 20+ bolts! The only thing I can see is you have to drill and tap the swingarm on each side to help hold the adjustors in place?

You do not have to drill and tap the swingarm, you use the two plates with the small tabs on them to kind of clamp the adjusters to the swingarm. The front bolt goes washer between swingarm and the adjusters then bolt.

Heres one before I had the lifters, the order on the back two bolts is bolt, lock nut, mounting tab, with the lock nut snugged up agaist the tab. Yo udo NOT want to put a lot of torque on those back two botls, and you want the tab square wtih the swingarm, not cock eyed on it.And remember washer in between adjuster and swingarm on the front bolt, that spaces the adjuster back just a little so the tab plates sit flush.
