Ok here is the file.

As I live in Serbia, can you please give me the idea how to print on it, since it is a 3D object (probably pad-print,...)?

It is a view tech printer, the print from jets and so can spray to meet curvature of 3d item.. The ink is uv cured.

Thanks, I will find out a cost.

That sounds a lot a hassell for a literal 1 minute job. Ok so the insert is a bit pricey but it's gotta be worth buying it surely?

Probably yes, but there is no excitement :)
If you alredy have tools and materials to get it done - could be worth doing it this way :cool:

Still looking for the way to apply gear layout... :hm

Can you use a R26 Gear Knob etc on a non R model?! Thinking of changing mine along with the gear gaitor aswell.

Might be possible to get a key cutter to grove into the insert! Then just paint it over and go through the lines with a marker. Worth a try on a spare if anyone has one.
