I have a friend who has a SE stick, but after trying both octagonal and square gates he prefers octagonal. Since Christmas is coming up, I was planning on getting him an octagonal gate. The problem is that i’m not certain if a Sanwa 8-way jlf will fit a SE stick. Does anyone know if it will? The part would be this http://www.lizardlick.com/Sanwa-GT-Y-Octagonal-Restrictor-Plate_p_242.html
It does fit. The madcatz se was designed to be sanwa parts clone.
if the stick in the se is stock, you might want to consider buying him a JLF as well. It took me considerable effort to remove the square gate on my SE spare and i damaged the stock gate and the main body (the black part) just trying to remove it. My sanwa gate fit just fine, but i damaged that as well removing it. The parts are still usable, it just bugs me knowing I left some marks trying to remove them.
Thanks for the help
