I was just looking for this the other day. http://www.icbm.org/erkson/per...g.htm
*Edit: I forget they show a tubing cutter in that link... While that would work, I'd rather just use a dremil tool and take some time making sure everything is nice and cleaned up before recutting the threads.
Hacking off the gear shift lever does not make for a short shifter. What you would end up with is a short gear shift lever. This does not result in shorter gear shift travel, and it does result in making the effort necessary to shift gears increasing.
A short shifter, is comprises of one or two modified shift linkage levers under the hood which results in shorter gear shift travel.
Yea I cut about 3 inches off mine and is makes a huge difference.
I also have a short shift kit, but with the stock gear knob it really felt worthless. Too much flexing.
I got a mk4 knob and its sitting as low as it can go. I might even try and trim it to go even lower!!!!
