It does make the shift feel realy notchy, but I like it like that, makes it feel real crisp.

I wasn't able to get mine off. Lack of space and hot engine parts.

^ lol hotter engine = hotter bolts = expansion = tighter bolts = busted knuckles lol
the first couple hundred miles i've noticed the difference and felt very light and notchy but after having mine off for almost 1000 miles. i seems stock again feels better and more natural now since i'm used to the feel.

sorry for waking this up from the death... i just had to do it, any problems so far with the counterweight removal ? anyone?... i think 2 years of having no counterweight with no issues means its a good thing and doesnt affect the tranny cables

I've had mine off for over 40,000 miles that included Chicago rush hour traffic and a few track days. No problems here.
