Mine went last year, never heard anyone else with the problem till now - at least the part isn't expensive
Steve - both pins/ lugs that do the driving were sheared off and the lugs which are driven by the wheel were well worn down to about half their width, which I suppose then contributed to the shearing.
Is your speedo drive all metal? I did buy a new/ scrap one in error (i.e. before I had stripped the wheel down to see what the problem was) and it was all nylon inside and the one on my Cat is all metal.
Fraz -sorry to high-jack your thread mate.
Moved the topic here
The speedo drive pickup was nylon on the earlier models. I had a nylon unit and replaced it with metal when mine packed up, however a few months later the speedo began to operate intermittently. What I didn't know at the time was the lugs on the clutch meter (what sort of name is that!!) wore down and kept bending. Eventually it packed up altogether.
I suspect when the pick unit sheered itself to bits it caused the damage, or might have been done with the repeated front wheel removals.
