hey dc_todd where did u get ur wheel done? mean the black?


Check out eBay.com.au they are the black perferated leather ones that the XRs came with. Personally I upgraded to the Momo recently and the extra 75 was so worth it!

i think u should chop at least an inch off ur gearstick and get a black boot and maybe a few more splashes of red around the place would look sweet.

yeah I could have got silver and black but for another $50.. I got this one at the pre-momo price increase..

even still its not cheap.

it has 3 grub screws to fit.. very simple feels very secure. no movement at all..


I cant even get my gear knob off.... When I had the manual conversion, the gear stick had no thread on it, so I went out to find gear knobs like what you have, but none would fit. Ended up filing down the shifter arm and managed to fit my gear knob - problem now is - cant get the f**k off :(
I know how to remove the shifter lever - anyone know how much a new one is?
Id love to get one that isnt such a pain in the a** to fit a knob to.


(F**k - never used the word "KNOB" so many times in a post b4)

How much would you want for it mate?
Im in no big hurry, as my EF sits in the shed collecting dust till I can afford to re-register it.

BTW - is it the thread type or the other one which needs the 3 lugs o hold the knob on?

easy just out of a piece of scrap steel and some bolts, took about 1hour to make including wielding. just duplicate your old gear stick. mine basically looks like this
