Very probably (narrower splines, yes?) - I'll check tomorrow to make sure.

Yes, that's the one. For M951/2/3(?) cranks.

gtRTSdh, thanks for the link. :)

Dug mine out, it's 109.5 axle width if that's any good, it's dirty but still feels very smooth. £5 posted if you want it?

Thanks Koupe. Do you have the shell width? I'm looking to stick it on a Zaskar so am looking for 73mm. Also have a feeling 109.5 axle might be a touch too narrow for m951 cranks - will do some digging online and see if others have managed!

109.5 is fine, used it on my mt vision for a while, front mech worked & cleared the swingarm. Standard was 112 & 116, so 109.5 is very close to 112.

GT RTS, how is it going to work with the different shell widths? I know you can add spacers to pad a 68mm shell out for a 73mm bb, but not too sure about the opposite. I've read some threads about people essentially decoupling the bb and widening the body/opposing threads with spacers, but don't know how smart an idea this is.

You know anything about this? Any thoughts are welcomed! :)

Cheers
