These knobs are awesome! The shifting is soooo much crisper than the stock ball. Highly recommended...

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but can you annodize stainless steel? I have only ever heard of annodized aluminum.

The stock knob is very light. It's aluminum. I would weight it but I gave it away.

Thanks Dave.

The hardest part of replacing the knob is figuring out which thread diameter
is required.

Thanks for the response.

I have 5 small heavy knobs left. All the big ones are gone, for now.

Small knob is same diameter as stock. Weighs about .9 lbs.

Nice and heavy.

Jim - do you think you'll have any of the larger ones available or was this a 'clean off the shelves' kinda thing?

Jim, I think you'll have a hard time telling the small ones... after all, who would want small balls?
