I have an auto now and my Monster ****, from my gen 1 manual, threads were way to big for it. I couldn't find anything that would make it work and was about to try and sell it and buy a new **** to fit when my father-in-law came to the rescue. He has a machinist friend who made a threaded adapter so it would fit. I'm so happy to have my **** back in the car. I think it really suites the new interior and it feels so much better than the OEM ****.
