Go faster gear knobs - DOH!

You could try heating it with a hairdryer (ooh the mind boggles at such a thought) - a bit of heat might help it come off - otherwise it a case of cutting it off with a hacksaw - slice it down the side first (now my eyes are watering) and it should release. Its probable the new one may need to be glued on. Before applying any adhesive ensure the lever is clean (no licking now) and give it a clean with meths or something similar. There are loads of boy racers out there who will probably know exactly how it's done - you'll recognise them easy enough - they are the ones who bought the new baseball caps (the one with the peak at the back ( would dearly llike to know where you can buy them) - the only ones I can find have the peak to the front (am I missing something here) Good Luck!
