    Yep that was it...the little plastic gear.
    It is just worn out enough that sensors pin is no longer able to
engage it..I suppose this is one item to replace at the same time as
the front sprocket just to prevent any inconveniences.

    Thanks for the link Brad, I will order one in and in the meantime
try to figure out building the worn out part with epoxy glue or
something as such...cheers

>> But I had several days of erratic speedo readings before it conked out,
>> not a fairly sudden failure like yours.  So maybe it's different on the
>> newer series with electronic rather than analog instruments.
