So far, my 2005 with 14K miles on it feels like all is well but I'm a proactive type of guy. I've gathered all the parts, video's and pictures so I could make my own list of instructions for a relaxed therapy project in the man-cave. This will be saved for one of those fall weeks when it is just too miserable to go outside but the man-cave/garage is still warm enough that my fingers haven't lost their feeling. I'm going to replace the grenade with 2 steels and one friction to make everything stock, and I'll replace the stock throw out bearing with a 7200B bearing at the same time. I'll post the results then.
I found the time on some cool mornings last week to replace the throw out bearing and the grenade plate. I posted the details of tools, steps and results in a separate post. I hope this helps some DIY riders. It is not a hard job if you take your time, plan well and have the right tools. If I could do it, anyone can.

UPDATE:
Nearly 2000 miles later, the new throw-out bearing and grenade plate removal continues to make rides more enjoyable than ever. I ride mountain twisties all the time it seems I shift every few seconds throughout all of my rides. The smoother and easier clutch pull (to me, anyway) and slightly quicker clutch engagement are far better than what I had before, which weren't that bad in the first place and the parts I removed were still in very good shape. So I figure went from "good" to "better". I encourage everybody to do this. It's not expensive, not hard to do and the only special tool I needed was the clutch spring remover.
