Default TiC Bodacious bundle- questions

I had DS1 motorsports installed my shifter bushings which included:

kartboy front bushings

Kartboy rear bushing

TiC linkage bushings

TiC pivot bushings

There is so much resistance in my throw now it is ridiculous. I have to shift it so hard or else it will have resistance before it goes into place. The only thing is it reduced slop in the throw but it doesnt matter to me though because I shift slower now due to the added resistance right before you get it into gear. Anyone have any experience with this?

loosen the pivot bolt. they probably overtorqued it during the install. i believe the torque spec is only supposed to be 8 ft/lbs. same thing happened to me after my install. after i loosened it, everything was fine. don't loosen it too much though or your shifter will rattle.

I would hope he wouldn't change you. It takes all of 30 seconds.

If you have a wrench, you can do it yourself. Just lift up on the shifter trim and it's the only horizontal nut/bolt you'll see.

I had it adjusted and I'm going to adjust it myself. It still feels like too much resistance right before it locks into gear. The initial throw theres no resistance then it hits like a ton of resistance then locks into gear.
