Default Logitech G27 Gearstick Thread Size?

Well, as per title. Anyone know the thread size of the gear stick that the knob sits on?

Looking at getting a new stick for when I get the sst lightning shifter to double up my G27 as a handbrake while drifting...

If anyone knows it'll be a massive help as I've Googled so much can't find anything, short of going through Logitech support...

Well, there are no external threads on the shifter shaft itself. You can pop off the top of the G27 shifter knob with a knife, and remove the knob using a small philips (+) screwdriver. I attached a tall shift knob to my G27 shifter after I modded it to work as a sequential shifter, but I had to fabricate an adapter to mount the aftermarket knob I purchased. You may have to do the same.

It wouldn't matter which one you got, as the shaft on the G27 shifter is 8mm and has no threads on the outside. You would have to fashion some sort of adapter to mount it.

Later today, when I'm home from work, I'll take some pics of my shifter so you can see what I am saying.

Alright dude, cheers!

I may just use a bucketload of tape or something I'm not sure yet.

Here you go buddy.

Pic 1 - You can see the shaft, no threads.

Pic 2 - the base of the shifter knob that I have. It is also unthreaded and is designed to be a press fit with some set screws,

Pic 3 - the new shifter knob in place. The perfect type for a sequential shifter.

I had to fashion a bushing to go over the shifter shaft that would be wide enough for the knob to slid over and have no play.

Your idea of wrapping the shifter shaft with tape might work out quite well. Just be sure to use wide electrical tape, and wrap it around the shaft clockwise, until there is enough tape there so you can twist the new knob into place. It might work out. Hope this helps.

Cheers mate! Looks like a bit of help.

I just need it to move into 4th really, as the sst will replace the 1-6 gears and the G27 shifter will be a handbrake
