Wondering if any of you guys can help me. Last night I used the OP method to get inside the speedo from my ‘84 GL1200E (standard). My problem is that the Trip Odometer stopped working and seemed to have come loose.

See the pic below.

Am I missing a piece that junctions the knob to the meter readout scroll wheels? Or is it just broken off?

Also I’ve read about the Oylite bushing, but I’m not sure which part is that and/or how to maintenance or re-lube it.

Thank you again for this post. My next project is to get inside my '81's Tach and repair. Thank you again!
