That sucks. Will the weighted grips fit the stock TS?

Somebody needs to come out with an honest-to-goodness hardened, precision TS for this bird. Hell - I'd even be happy with a precision TS that's as hard as the original. I love the 130X, but the seemingly haphazard assembly of the TS assembly can be a real pain in the butt. I've gone through 4-5 factory shafts just to fine one that's perpendicular to the eye, and I bet those weren't even close to being as true as they should be for something that spins @ 20,000 RPM.
