I recently got my 2014 accord 6-6 coupe, and I am ready to do some bolt-ons. I have been looking all over forums and youtube for any short-shifter options for the 9th gen accord coupe, with little luck. Probably the only useful thread I found was on this site, and it was on the TWM short-shifter. Now that it looks like TWM is going out of business (due to their website not working and the company's last facebook page post), it seems there are no options for a short-shifter out there?? If anybody knows of any other company or any way to shorten the shift throw/improve shift feel, please help!

Try hitting up Acuity? They make shift kits for a lot of Hondas but nothing for our Accords.
Maybe worth a shot 🤷‍♂️
Left a comment on one of their youtube videos asking if they would make them for the 9th gen accords. I got a response from someone I assumed worked for them, saying " it’s unlikely. We love the manual accords, but the market is unfortunately too small as best we can tell. That said, we do hope to offer more according shifting mods throughout 2020 🤙🏻"

I have a feeling that if they did make any new shifting mods then it would likely be for the 10th gen accords, and not for us 9th gen owners. Also this response was from February, so before shit hit the fan. Haven't sent a direct message to the company or anything like that. Maybe we could start a poll or something to show interest? Just throwin out an idea...

I love my TWM shifter. I got it five years ago before they went out of business. You could try this in the link below. It attaches to your factory shifter to lengthen the pivot which shortens the throw.
Doesn't seem like there's any other options so I might have to just give it a try. It says it gives it a 38% shorter throw. Do you remember what TWM advertised? Also it says that it requires a "slight trim" to the OE shift box. Do you remember doing that, and if so, do you have any insight on it?

Yeah that number sounds about right. And yes i had to trim some plastic on my shifter assembly with the twm shifter. Same deal. Reason is because of the longer travel at the bottom end of the pivot it will hit regardless of which option you went with. This is the video i watched to install mine but will show you the trimming. Really not that bad.

Gotcha. It isn't specified if it works for the coupe, but I left a message on CT Engineering's site, so we'll see what they say. If they say it'll work, then I guess I'll be tryin it out!

Also, slightly off topic, do you have any recommendations for shift knobs?

Shift knobs are personal preference. If you want it to look like it sits lower than stock look for a countersunk knob. I had a weighted steel knob but it got too hot when the car sat in the sun all day. I changed to a carbon fiber one that i got off eBay and i like it. Stock knob works too..... A lot of people even use the stock Civic Si or Acura TL knobs. My preference is a round knob it just feels good to me. You can buy a knob anywhere just make sure it’s the right thread size and pitch.

Does anyone know if there are any shift cable bushing kits still available? Also if anyone knows where a TWM shifter can be found, or is willing to part with one, please let me know!

Acuity Instruments has the cable bushings and shifter base bushings available in a kit, I believe.

Perfect . . . looks like pretty much all MT Honda's take the same bushings. I was looking at their POCO shifter as well . . .
