There are no threads. The shaft is keyed and the stock shift knob has a set screw. I didn't measure the shaft diameter but most shift knobs with set screws should work.

You might want to ck out my water proof shifter milled from solid aluminum with carbon fiber print I call it the "Lightning Bolt" I formed it to shorten the shift through now I hit that 3 gear every time!
You can find it in Cap~Rob's fab shop under slingshot accessory and appearance

I just installed a machined solid aluminum gear shift knob purchased from eastsiderodz2011 on ebay ($68 with fast free shipping). Looks amazing compared to stock rubber shift knob. Perfect fit and took less than a minute to install (remove hex lock nut). Really complements the high-tech look of the adjacent dash and trim. Also looks stock since it doesn't have an after-market manufacturer's logo detracting from look.

How hot will it be to the touch in summer?
I had one like that in a convertible and had to get rid of it.
You couldn't touch it in the summer without burning your hand.
