K-Tuned "Function Form" Shift Knob

MSRP: $79.99

Applications: All Honda / Acura models and any shifter with a M10 x 1.5 thread

The K-Tuned Billet Shift Knob is the result of quite a bit of customer and racer feedback. We already offer several K-Series shifter upgrades so it was definitely time for us to develop a clean and functional shift knob. The process begins with a solid billet bar of 6061 aluminum, and each knob is machined to final size on a CNC lathe. After the lathe, the blank knobs are sent out for the anodizing process. The black is hard anodized and the other colors are regular anodize. During the final step, each knob is chucked up on a 4-Axis CNC mill to precision cut in the unique grid pattern that was designed to improve shifter grip. This final step is so critical that we actually have a 5% scrap rate. On cable shifter setup we found that a weighted knob can cause shifting problems for some drivers because the neutral return spring has to work harder to pull the shifter back to the center. So instead of going to the heavy side we found a good weight (5.5 oz) that is just enough to allow confident and accurate shifting while still keeping enough weight to help the front to back shifts. Shift knobs are finished in your choice of black or silver with our K-Tuned logo on two sides. On top we engraved our signature “K” logo. A custom made jam nut is included to keep the knob locked in place. This knob is a great way to finish off any shifter setup.

A removable rubber sleeve to insulate your hand from the cold/hot for us daily drivers would be great. I believe MUGEN has a philosophy of function that states Power, Calm and Reliability as a template for their parts. If I don't have to use 1% of my brain thinking "This motherfucker shift knob is cold/hot" I can utilize 100% to achieve the next shift.

wish it had a H pattern on the top.
Then it would be considered legal in countries overseas.
This is interesting. I didn't know that the H pattern needed to be on there to be legal in some countries?

A sleeve is a good idea. For now, I just use a oem plastic knob in the colder seasons and save the metal ones for spring and summer use. But like you said, be careful on super hot days... LOL

I took a small size Chuck-it ball and cut a round hole on the bottom so I could squeeze it over the shift knob. It's grippy, comfortable and cheap.



I also would like to say the K-Tuned shift knob is verry nice!
