I have the same problem. The speedometer gear drive bushing screw broke off just above the threaded portion in the wheel hub casting. PN 67110-49 . This keeps the speedometer gear from moving out of the hub. I'm planning to drill mine out with a small left handed drill.|
Anybody else have this problem?

I have a 1960 Super 10. Everything works great on the bike except for the speedo. I had the speedo restored and I've tested it. It works. The problem, I believe, is in the wheel. Problem is I can't get the darn plug at the end of the speedo cable to come out. It's stuck in there. It comes out about an 1/8 of an inch maybe and then won't budge. Any ideas? I've tried some lube around the hole but that didn't do it. Should I apply some heat? Should I emery cloth the plug before re-installing next time? BTW I can remove the inner speedo cable... I'm thinking either a gear broke or the cable broke at the end.
