Hori Hayabusa Silent Optical Joystick In TE2+?

I'm thinking bout picking up the Hori Hayabusa Silent Optical Joystick. I hear it has a 6 pin harness and comes with a 6 pin cable. Is it possible to adapt this to my standard 5 pin harness while keeping my current cable stock?

    I havent seen a te2+ pcb in person but normally what you would do is crimp a jst-xh female connector to the other end of the cable that comes with the hayabusa, for gnd, u, d l, r, and plug that in the connector on the pcb where the jlf cable was. Then find a place to solder the 6th wire for vcc. However ive read some posts that indicate the pcb might start acting weird if vcc is tapped.

    Possible, you need to find a 5 pin connector to splice into your 6 pin harness and you also need to tap somewhere for VCC.

    curious about this too, it says that one last pin needs to be soldered right into the PCB according to AS :(

    I have a silent hayabusa installed in my joystick. I'm using a brooks ufb so it's pretty easy to install. The cable it came with is a six 6 pin harness on one side and no harness on the other. You could easily install a 5 pin harness on that side then manually solder the sixth wire. You'll need to install a cable harness yourself if you want to use your existing connector.
