Maverick + silicone = ?

What will happen if I scrape our the rubber response, and silicone this thing? Will it become unresponsive?

it might still be responsive, if you want it unresponsive then clean the bearing
the rubber response is smoother than the silicone

I put flowable silicone in my Mav and it’s just as responsive as ever. Also, I would discourage you from trying to cut the rubber in any way because it’s a lot harder than you would think.
