I've been printing with bulk filament for a week now. I did need to adjust the gears, because the slightly bigger bulk filament was squished too much be the default gear setting and didn't fit the nozzle. I've had only one failed print out of 20 or so, the filament jammed in the middle of the print. I think that it was caused by me testing some extrusion settings in Kisslicer, because since then no problems.

I've tried two brands of filament, Cel Robox white PLA and Esun black PLA. I also have a roll of black Filaflex, but haven't tested it yet.

Adjusting the gear: on my printer, it was impossible to adjust the gear because the way it's machined. The backside of the gear has the gear's axle protruding and this protrusion then fits a hole in the frame and thus cannot move backwards from it's original position. I needed to file away a bit from the axle so now the gear can be moved backwards more.
