Question Dimensions for a short shift adapter

Hey guys,

I'm glenn and I own a 2011 CR-Z sind spring 2017. SInce I'm going to university in germany, I don't have the money to do many mods to my car (for now, when i finished i have some plans to make it crazy ).

I however am now able to build some basic metal parts for the car. And m first idea was to optimize the shifter. This means: More solid shifting feel and less shifter throw.

For the solid feel part: Already ordered hybrid racing shifter cable bushings (on their way) and measured the dimensions for the shifter base bushings (going to make them from aluminium). I can upload the sketch for it, however I want to wait when the parts are finished so i know that the dimensions are correct and I'm not upload anything that makes it worse for other users than better.

So, now to my question: Does anyone have the dimensions for the "pin-end" on the shifter? SKunk2 made some adapters and I plan to do the exactly same thing. For that, I need the diameter of the shifter end and the radius of the ball-shaped end. The notch between those two can be approximated.

I don't have good enough tools to measure those things and any help would be welcome.

Also: Is the skunk2 adapter just a precise fit or does it also somehow clamp down on the main shifter? If yes, i would need a screw which clamps to the main shifter.

The material I will use is stainless steel, since aluminium could be to weak...

Of course i will post the results of this all.

Thanks in advance,

I don't know about the skunk2, but I got the buddy club, and the ball-end that clips to the linkage didn't fit correctly, so I had to swap the end adapter out with the OEM piece. See the white plastic shown in the pic--that's the OEM shifter with the buddy club white plastic clip on it (I forget what the OEM clip was made of, or what it looked like, but the OEM part fit better and was of better quality, so I used it instead of what came with the buddy club.)

I can only get you measurements for the OEM shifter, since it's out of the car, but I don't know of anyone offhand who has the skunk2 for measurements.

Sorry for taking so long to reply. I bought a cheap measurement tool and took my shifter apart on my own.

It seems that the ball at the end is 13mm in diameter. When everything works out, I have the adapter done this weekend. I'm hoping it will work, wince my measurement tool is anything but accurate
