I've replaced stabilizers that came with keyboard with those: https://zealpc.net/collections/accessories/products/authentic-cherry-pcb-plate-mount-gold-plated-stabilizers
Significantly better experience compared with ones that came with keyboard. Mounting them wasn't problem at all and product seems to be quite good quality.

Do you know if there is a clear / white version of these I can buy someplace?

I am not aware, to be honest. That is one of two sites that I gave it a check on, and on the other one they were sold out.

did the same. my stabs were slightly large for the cutouts on the board so i filed down the corners of the stabs with an exacto knife to get them to fit. Also went ahead and lubed them since the board was taken apart anyways. With all of that done my Ktype (with 67g zealios) is fantastic!

Yeah, noticed the same. I just pushed them little bit harder towards the board and managed to get them to fit tightly.

Just wanted to add that K-Type uses Cherry Plate Mounted stabilisers if you are considering replacing - here is a good photo (from geekhack.org) that indicates differences:

What exactly do you need to do to open the case and be able to remove the stabilizers? I'm guessing you need to remove all switches first then open the case?

to remove the case you need to take out all the switches and remove the 8 screws on the back. each side of each stab is being held in by one clip looking thing on the underaide of the top plate. push it in and the stab should alide right out. i used the cherry plate mount stabs and lube from the ZealPC store. let me know if you have more questions

No need to do all this, opening the case is totally unnecessary. Just take off the specific caps for the keys with stabilizers, pull out the switch with the switch puller, the stabs have a little bit of plastic that you push in the release them from the plate. I just replaced mine last night… lubing took longer than swapping. The act of swapping stabs takes seconds.
