Icon5 How does this d_mn shift **** come off?

I know this is gonna be a pretty stupid question but how the hell do I get the shift **** off of my 07 STX 5-speed shifter. I have been wanting to put an aftermarket shift **** on my shifter but i cant figure out how to get the stock one off. Most shift ***** either screw on or have a set screw you have to loosen to get it off but this one has neither that i can tell. I've tried unscrewing it but i doesnt budge and i've looked all over for a set screw and cant find one. I even bought one of those chilton manuals hoping for an answer and no luck there either.
This is one of the ones i found for it

I am pretty sure I just pulled mine off. It took some muscle but I pulled and twisted it. Not sure if thats the right way to do it or not though.

Mine was a pain. But all I did was heat it up with a hair dryer until it was warm...then just pulled and twisted it until it came off. Kind of a b***h, but I personally hated the stock shift ****.

Oh yeah, I hear ya!! Currently I have a Snap-On screw-driver handle as my shift ****...but I really wish our shifters were threaded because I am thinking I kind of want a B&M T-handle.

After you pull and twist the **** off remove the stick from the vehicle and weld a threaded stud to the top.
Now ou have a threaded shift lever.

Or switch to a hurst shifter, sweet lever and screw on ****.
Hurst has all kind of replacement shift levers, puts the **** anywhere you need it.
