!The white top is just stuck on the stick, it's not glued. You need to pull it off CAREFULLY, don't go hog wild and damage the cables or PCB!

so this is just the thumb-stick cap ? you do not change the actual thumb-stick electronics? what would be the benefit? is it just for the magnetic caps?

It's for magnetic sticks and having a metal stick that has less friction on the plastic casing.

This is an awesome easy mod! The series 2 stick link you posted above is out of stock so I ended up getting these instead: https://amzn.to/3nRRVPF
Hopefully they work just as well. Will post again once I try it out on mine. I like the idea of being able to quickly swap out the stick lengths and grips this way.

Thanks so much for sharing this - I just did this mod on my Cyborg and I'm really happy with the result. I wanted to mention the five-way switch above the analog thumbstick needs to be removed before the plate will come away - you can just gently pull the stick off. It's also worth checking the switch clicks in all directions before reassembling everything. Also be aware these is a little grease on the inside, so the screws you remove may leave a slight mark when you put them down.
