In Reply to: UUC web site says no break-in required, more posted by Ron Stygar on June 23, 2000 at 20:52:20:

There can be a slight break-in of the single yellow washer as reported by some users. For the most part this has an extremely minor effect, and that was my only thought on why the shifter would feel tight if installed properly. As Jeff has since reported, his mechanic followed these steps:
1) throw instructions in garbage.
2) install any old way.

The shifter was installed with vital components left out. I can guarantee Jeff will feel a tremendous difference when this is fixed.

ORIGINAL home of the Ultimate Short Shifter conversion

: By integrating the cartridge bearing system into our Evo Series line of Ultimate Short Shifters, we're able to bring a new level of shifting to the market place. With virtually zero pivot resistance, the only resistance within the entire shifting assembly now lies inside the transmission itself. This means the absolute smoothest shifts from day one, with no break in period whatsoever. Additionally, because the cartridge bearings are designed to last longer than traditional bushings, you can be assured that the quality of the shifts will not diminish over time.
