  • It's still a crown 309 @masked rider
  • I made a korean arcade parts discussions group on fb if anyone is interested in joining it. Wazwuz suggested it so that he can post his new tech on their since srk is closing down.
  • @wazwuz glad to hear your dad is starting to feel better. Very sad as well about the forum closing which is funny because I joined back in 2007 but didn't start posting on here til the release of tekken 7. Before that I only used sanwa and seimitsu …
  • @VarmintBaby the older golden fanta batches had the 40A grommet but it's discontinued meow.
  • @thephantomnaut you can always try a myoungshin bushing and golden fanta shaft inside the fujin to reduce the tension but will have to modify fujin actuator tho. Works really well imo
  • @VarmintBaby I'm sure @Agieze will answer that question because he's a g and has vast knowledge about these things. 1 think you can test to see if .187 connectors are loose on switches is holding left/right/up/down for a few seconds to see if it's …
  • @Wamsalami it all comes down to personal preference. Some ppl say less wobble gives more precise inputs but I for one find everything easier with a slight wobble.
  • @Wamsalami welcome to the forum. The spring is primarily used to eliminate wobble. Korean joysticks for the most part wobble and Japanese joysticks do not.
  • Hope everyone had a great holiday! Here's to another year of exploring and discovering new info about k-parts

  • @Marios you can tighten the golden fanta shaft onto an electric drill and sand off the difference to fit the fujin actuators. Just thought of this as I was reading your question. If you put even pressure you should be able to take off just the righ…
  • @Rokwho @jey-are I'm not having any issues at all atm with this set up but switched over permanently to my fujin 7mm shaft and 14.5mm actuator on myoungshin. I just find the loose wobbly feel suits my playstyle more compared to the green arcade pa…
  • @Marios They're very soft switches and imo not worth looking for. There is a place in Europe that sells them but I forget what it's called. Don't have any pics on hand so just Google "am51662c53n". The only difference visually the prongs are paral…
  • @Marios very interesting. I have never tried the 1610s but have the 1630 and 1662 which were originally used in a seimitsu.
  • @Marios I find depending on the lever if you put the bushing upside down you won't be able to twist battop and when it's put it the right way it spins freely. I noticed this on the fujin awhile back. The tolerances between bushing, actuator, shaft a…
  • @Agieze Good point! Just want to see what gives more consistent results between using fujin bushing and myoungshin inside both fujin and myoungshin. The quicker return to neutral due to higher tension in fujin does give you a sense of speed but at …
  • @Agieze Very informative thank you. I always thought the spring added more tension like in the 309's. Lighter grommets work well in the fujin with stock bushing but it still has that added tension which tends to give it a mushy feel. You don't get t…
  • @wazwuz honestly the wobble spent bother me too much because I'm used to it but if anything eliminating the wobble would lead to more accurate inputs. The spring can and will work but depending on how much tension on the spring you'll have to compen…
  • Good news everyone! I messaged @Wazwuz lastnight to see if he can design a metal bushing for myoungshin and looks like he was already planning on making them. So in order to eliminate the use of the stock bushing because they get worn out like crazy…

  • @LBG depends on the switches you have on the helpme. I'm assuming it either has A2s or Am5s but depending when you bought it Then it should be am5s. If you have A2s on them then switching to A3s will fix this issue since a3s increase the range of di…
  • @blankaex will do man I'll be post my results here.
  • @blankaex it's not the grommet that's making it the tension feel like that. It's actually the oversized bushing and if I had to guess the grommet is medium fanta myoungshin. Even if you swap to a soft grommet and used the same one in the myoungshin …

  • @Nostromo21 an easy way to remove the e-clip is to use a medium sized stubby flat head screw driver. Use a corner of the flat head to remove e-clip by sticking it inside the tiny gaps and pry it out against the shaft. To put them back on use the fl…
  • @m_abdalla3 If you bore the actuator like I did with a golden fanta shaft the actuator will still feel tight on fujin. Grats on getting a fujin! I find doing kbd the easiest on stock fujin but after a long session my hands feel like they're broken.
  • @NGY4M it's there to prevent micro switches from moving under stress. Normally there is only 1 screw holding the switch unlike the fujin which utilizes 2 to prevent this kind of thing from happening.

  • @sinonick Honestly there are a lot of factors in terms of what switches are good for what. In my personal experience grommets and actuator size are what I'm referring to. Like for example I've used a2s in a stock fujin v2 and absolutely hated it bec…
  • @Marios Oh no that's like me I forgot to ask for an 8mm shaft. So the tests I've done so far are 14.5mm actuator with 7mm shaft on fujin with soft grommet and myoungshin bushing and it's amazing. The speed of cd on 1p is faster than 2p which I've n…
  • Marios wrote: » @zero_requiem diffrent size of shafts ? It's a 7mm shaft so it's basically the same as the green arcade parts that wazwuz is selling but actuators are derlin instead of bronze.
  • @sinonick these were a special request from airbaguy creator of the fujin. I'm not in liberty to give his information out but I can ask him for you.
  • I think I have enough of these lol.
  • @Nostromo21 No worries man. Changing the actuator to a bigger one will change the characteristics completely. Yes the actuators will actuate faster but with A2s I think diagonals will be harder to hit and more sensitive. The hole in the collar is of…

  • @Nostromo21 in my experience that set up works best with taeyoung, myoungshin and fujin. A2 will be used for down and am5s for the other 3 switches but a3s will work as well. Personally i prefer to keep all switches the same on the 309 and kaze. Fir…

  • @Marios just copy what I did with my fujin. I'm using a soft grommet with myoungshin bushing for less tension. I modified my actuator to accommodate golden fanta 8mm shaft. Currently im using all am5s on it

  • @wazwuz oh no that it's nothing special but I guess we all want what we cannot have. Do u know if the switch positioning is different on the green arcade lever compared to stock myoungshin?

  • @Marios What I originally came up with is boring out the hole on the stock actuator and using a stock myoungshin bushing with 8mm golden fanta shaft with to replicate green arcades levers. I then asked Wawuz to make a 7mm shaft and 14.75mm derlin ac…
  • @Marios diy it is just an abbreviation of "do it yourself. Wow this Fujin v2 idea is blowing up lol good job to everyone contributing to this!
  • @the Phamtomnaut I messaged him this morning to see if he could make the shaft and actuator in derlin. Worst comes to worst I take the 10mm shaft and throw it on my cnc lathe then turn it down to size.
  • @Rokwho lucky! 14.8mm is so close to green arcades actuators. I believe what they mean by closer switch positioning is that they're closer to the center. Which is why this set up will work better than the myounshins and the fujin will work best. Do…
