Finally it's fun the shift again ! (want to do CDV delete next).

This is a real must-have in my book, it's my 1st mod and I'm really happy with it, and $$-wise it's well worth it. If nothing else, the look of the original ball & bearing was so nasty - really dry and full of small black flakes from the rubber boot - the new set plus the fresh grease would probably have improved things by themselves.

If you're in the area you're welcome to try it out.
