^ yep, what he said... except I call it a lever
is the reason I selected this particular friction shifter.
With the friction lever adjusted to minimal friction...
The lever will move freely and return to neutral with the throttle linkage assembly.
The lever's cable wire will extend out of the end of the throttle linkage, causing no bind.
^ (* using my attachment method) (* see muh video)
And the lever receives zero feedback from the cable's movement.
Add more friction to the lever (tighten)
and it becomes a index type shifter.
And holds solid at the index positions.
No opposing lever feed back in this position either.
If the cable end is attached in a different way then I did...
It might be possible that lever feedback could occur.
But enough slack in the cable end would likely bend/loop the wire
rather then push back into the cable housing.
^ but it's something to be aware of if the cable end is attached differently.

I'm fairly conscious about everything on muh junk...
Knowing it is there and how to use it... makes ya smarter.
Safe is only as good as one makes that.
If yer a dummy... ya probably shouldn't do this mod
thanks for the details regarding the SC cable mount differences
