    Has anybody changed the gearknobs on these 6th gens - I assume it is a simple screw on/off job but I would prefer confirmation before I snap it.

    Many thanks

    I have changed mine and it is indeed a simple screw type, just grab it firmly and try and hold the stick straight and turn it to screw off, there not very tight about 2nm from factory install, which is like hand tight.

    Window tints cost around £150 for good Suntek ones - I think I'll just wait till darkness which is basically 4pm :Sobbing:

    Found some mugen and skunk2 gear sticks. Also for future info guys the majority of Honda gearstick screw sizes are m10 x1.5

    I have the genuine skunk2 knob myself, fantastic knob but cost a bomb. Unless from an official supplier shop on ebay, 99% of the knobs labelled as skunk2 or mugen are fake, so watch out unless you want a fake.

    Yup I'm having the same issue. I knew skunk2 counterfeits existed before but now Mugens are also getting counterfeited. I'll probably end up buying one from a real shop if I'm gonna stand any chance of getting a genuine article.
