Shifter Cable Bushing for select 2007+ Hondas by Acuity

Bad news: it's true. Honda intentionally makes their rubber shifter cable bushings very compliant in an effort to give the car a more tame feel. For many drivers, that's ideal. Unfortunately, this disconnects the driver from feeling the transmission during shifts, often leading to missed shifts or slow shifting in racing conditions.

A less compliant plastic or metal bushing is the ideal solution, but without a spherical bearing, the bushing will cause the cables to bind and fatigue. That's why ACUITY has designed this kit with a custom acetal and aluminum spherical bushing. Also unlike most bushings on the market, ACUITY's design incorporates elastomer rings to provide the best fit possible with your cables. Experience a solid, smooth shift that will make you fall in love with your car again.

A large-diameter, custom spherical bearing minimizes long-term wear and tear while eliminating the binding that is caused by most aftermarket solid shifter cable bushings. Loose fitting components also contribute to a poor shifting feel. That's why ACUITY uses integral o-rings on the outside of each bushing to provide a perfect fit with your OEM cables. Tested on street cars, track cars, and ACUITY's unreasonably violent shifter testing machine, these bushings are designed to be robust and proven to last. Each bushing kit is laser etched with a unique serial number and includes stainless steel hardware to help prevent long-term corrosion, keeping your bushings looking great even longer. And if all of that isn't impressive enough, the bushings are over 20% lighter than their OEM counterparts, weighing in at only 48 grams (with hardware).

Greatly Improved Shifting Feel

I got the shifter cable bushings to go with the Acuity Short Shifter Assembly to complete the set & it doesn't disappoint! Before getting the cable bushings I had various aftermarket shifter parts including a bushing upgrade. The precise feel the Acuity bushings makes my old aftermarket bushings pale in comparison. If you're on the fence about whether or not to upgrade the bushing, it's worth it!

Replaced the Hybrid Racing shifter bushings

These replaced the Hybrid racing shifter bushings I had in my fk8. Seems Acuity’s shift products are a little more precise with better build quality but I do have the Hybrid Racing detent springs which is great. I wanted to maximize the shift feel since I just installed the German CAE shifter in my fk8 besides the purple matches all the titanium dress up hardware in my engine bay 😅.

I like em!

Upgraded my 2011 CR-Z OEM shifter to the BuddyClub short shifter, along with the Acuity Shifter Base bushings and these Cable Bushings. Everything came together nicely.
Getting to these bushings was a pain in the rump, but I’m glad I did it. You need to disconnect the battery, the air box, and the IMA battery connector to get to these bushings, so keep that in mind. I’m happy with my purchase!

Subtle — but noticeable

Subtle change but noticeable. But fan of all things acuity
