Other Details
  • Product Description

    Compatible specifically with 0.187in & 0.250in Omron (V, D2RV, & D3V Series) and Gersung (GSM-V) without hinge lever. Remember to adjust connectors for .187"

    Do NOT use with Shuriken V2

    Please note that other common .187" microswitches are untested, or may not have the metal terminals in a location that the device's connectors can attach to. Do not attempt to use microswitches that possess a hinge lever, as these will not fit. It is also not compatible with the Sanjuk brand of joystick lever.

    Shuriken PCB is set for .250" terminal switches by default. Use needle nose pliers or similar tool to move Shuriken connectors closer to .187" terminal switches. See install manual new-window-icon.png for details.

    The Sanwa TP-MA PCB Assembly is one of the most common microswitch PCBs, with a tried and true design that remains one of the fighting game standards.  That said, should a microswitch need replacement due to damage or fault, your options are quite limited. You either buy a new TPMA PCB or solder a new replacement microswitch.

    Compatible with .250" and .187" Microswitches. Adjust to .187" using Needle-Nose Pliers

    The Bit Bang Gaming Shuriken V2 JLF PCB will fit Omron V-Series .250" terminal microswitches by default. Plus, utilizing a needle-nose pliers, you can gently bend the connectors to fit the smaller and more common .187" terminal microswitch (please refer to compatibility notes, as not all .187" terminal switches will function properly with Shuriken V2). Once complete, just snap in each microswitch into the PCB's metal connectors. Best of all, no soldering is required.

    Change the Grams Force per Direction

    The power of the Shuriken V2 lies in its ability to swap in different microswitches for each direction.  Switches that have a larger grams force take more force to engage. You may prefer this on the up and down directions, while a lighter force is desired for left and right direction. You can mic and match your switches to your preference, enhancing your directional gameplay.


    • Compatible with .250" Omron V-Series and D3V  microswitches. Also compatible with .187" Omron V, D2RV and D3V series, plus Gersung GSM-V switches
    • Will fit Sanwa JLF-TP-8YTSanwa JLF-TP-8Y-SK Joystick, and most Sanwa JLF clone models that use TPMA design.
    • 5-pin JST-NH male connector attaches to existing JLF 5-pin female harness present in most Fightsticks.
    • Aluminum core for durability.
    • Will work with OTTO DIY V5 Kit for JLF.

    1. Do your math first.

      The stock Sanwa microswitches have always felt way to hard for me (200g actuation force...!!!), causing wrist fatigue and pain after long gaming sessions.

      Now i can finally use lighter microswitches. I'm using 50g actuation force ones, and it's night and day! All my motions are lighter, faster, effortless, and i can play for longer with no pain.

      2 downsides to consider tho:

      _ microswitches are difficult to find. I had to buy from a foreign industrial website and pay big extra fees, it ended up costing me 10 euros per microswitche, which is way way too expensive. It was impossible to find these on any arcade related website, which was very annoying. You should keep this in mind if you consider buying the shuriken. Don't make same mistake i did: look for the microswitches and check their prices first. If i knew how much it would cost me in the end, i wouldn't have buy it.

      _ the microswitches don't fit perfectly on the shuriken. It's minimal, they do fit well enough so everything works just fine, but you might loose some accuracy since they are not in the very same position as the stock ones (they are like half a millimeter off). I couldn't notice this playing in game though.

      p.s.: ordering from France I had to pay an extra 35 euros customs fees I wasn't aware about. With the microswitches, it ended up costing me over 100 euros... The product is good and does it's job, but it's not worth this much money.
