HELP Re: Nexus 4 hub noise

I changed the shifter from the REVO grip shifter type to a Trigger type, it shifts fine (casette joint marks line up perfect in 4th) but i notice in 4th now it sounds kinda "rough". not a catastrophic noise but is definately noisier. I also know theyve stopped making the Nexus 4's, what i dont know is why? mechanical design/cost ? silly gearing ? failures ?!?

just wonderin if i need to dig deeper or leave well enough alone ?

I am also curious about the nexus 4 hub. I almost bought a bike with this hub. I later found out the hub was discontinued, but this bike also comes with a 3 speed nexus and a 7 speed.

Hope someone can shed some light.
