Less play in shifting more notchy but that is expected. This is where I felt the most improvement - Shifting is more precise.
Tried this diy the other day. Results aren't too dramatic (same as quote) but for the price and effort, it was worth it. The clip and white ring was a pia to take off somehow. The retainer clip is U shaped and easiest to take off by applying pressure outward on the bottom part of the U. Thanks for the DIY OP
