Use some force with a needle nose pliers to rip the o-ring out. It is in tight, so if you don't have o-ring pliers it is kind of a pain. it is metal, and can take a pounding, just try not to bend it or crease it.

Make sure to re-grease the Kartboys SS. You can re-use the grease from your stock shifter. They put A LOT of grease in there.

Tell her to order some front and rear Kartboys bushings. Without them the shifts will still be shorter but they will still be sloppy.

With the bushings it removes nearly all of the shifter play and gives you crisp, positive shifts.
