HRAP3 / EX Question about restrictor gate


#1

Now on the JLF sticks there is a Square restrictor. That square portion can be popped off to be replaced with an Octagonal restrictor. However, what would be the ramifications to just pop off the Square restrictor and leave it off, essentially allowing a wider circular motion.

Keep in mind this is only popping off the square part of it, but the rest of the plastic restrictor still holds the microswitches in place. I hope I’m making sense here. I’m still an amateur with stick modding so my terminology may be a bit lacking for detail.

Thanks for any advice.

EDIT: Using picture for clarification.

Lets say I only removed that yellow octagonal part. Would the stick suffer any damages in the long run? etc?
