    BB yes, rings no.
    All Shimano HT11 BBs are interchangable but XTR had some funny bolt patterns on the chainrings.

    Can I use my current XT triple chainrings and bottom bracket (Shimano M770) with a pair of XTR M970 Cranks?

    I’m aware that a special tool is needed to fit the non-driveside crank on the M970 XTR.

    Thanks in advance,

    BB yes, ring – I believe so, they are standard 104, 66 BCD I believe.

    Yes for the rings but you’ll need 2mm spacers for the 22t.

    As above – BB yes, 42/32 will fit but the XTR granny was specific – any other ring needs spacers.

    I have a part worn M970 set in the garage I think? If you want them drop me an email on georgebudd1 AT gmail.com

    Gee, might be in touch, will see what I have lurking in the shed first.

    You can user the inner ring, just needs 2mm spacers as Gee says – I ran TA rings on my M970s.

    Are the 2mm spacers easy to get hold of?
