A while back i started a thread complaining about the notchiness of shifting. Since then for whatever reason my shifter has been getting a lot smoother. Now that I have hit 5000 miles most of the notchiness is gone and even though the throw is still a bit long, I like it!
I have actually bought a SSK recently and am very disappointed in the quality. So my advice is, keep it stock for a couple months. If after 5000 miles you still don't like it, get an SSK.
