Kinzu v1 pcb compatibility in kinzu v2 shell?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey,

So I have a kinzuadder (kinzu v1 + da 3g pcb) in kinzu v1 shell, and I'm wondering if I could just put the whole thing (both pcb's) in kinzu v2 shell?

Basically asking if kinzu v1 and v2 shells are identical in every way and if anyone has done this before?


Thanks

Yahar,

The kinzu v2 shell (top part) has a few plastic rivets that support the board. Otherwise they are exactly identical. What I've done is taken a dremel (or you could just use some pliers or scissors, and cut / sand down those two rivets and it'll be a perfect fit. The second difference is the bottom plastic where the PCB sits, on the V2 the pcb is a bit longer than the v1 so the indentation for the sensor is a little bit off, but again you can just sand it down.







On the last picture htose are the rivets I've circled. Also I found that I used some tacky putty (about 2ccs) and it held everything in place quiet nicely. I also tackied two dimes to the front of the pcb and it balances the mouse out if you palm the kinzuadder.

And a few of the ones below I have my other kinzu adder boxed up at the moment if you need more pictures let me know. smile.gif

Thank you very much, appreciate a lot! That's a lot of help.

One thing, you have kinzu optical (v1) pcb top part and Da lower pcb in that kinzu v2 shell?

weird that my kinzu v1 top part is all black.


Also do you know whether the v2 pro and standard are identical for shell?

Yes the kinzu pcb I used for the kinzu adder was from the kinzu bulk editions. and yes v2 pro and standard are identical shell. thumb.gif

Thanks again,

Do you feel any difference between v1 and v2 mouse clicks? my v1 shell is crumbling and can't get any v1 shells anymore. Hopefully the v2 clicks will be a bit lighter compared to v1 with d2f-01f's. smile.gif

Yes, I popped open the switch and bent the slide so it feels lighter. I have about 10 kinzus so I was able to replace each shell to find the right amount of force. I've moved on to the da 2013 for now though so haven't messed with the kinzus that much anymore. I went from kinzu > kinzuadder > xai > sensei > rival > da2k13
