I now got a 6 speed ready to go in the Chimp

I need a new gear knob, any suggestions?

There's a load on here

I'm liking this on at the moment, but to many to choose from!

Got one of these on my S2:

(scroll down, CX101)

Looks great, feels solid, universal grub screw fit (but keep the allen key in the ashtray in case it vibrates loose!)

I quite like the 8-ball ones on ebay as well, was tempted by a screwthread fit.

I knew, I just knew that after reading the knob removal thread someone would start another knob thread. You lot are just sooo predictable. I even had a bet with myself who it would be, although I lost frown

I really like both of these but I can't help thinking the gear changes might not be all that slick
