Plastic Gear for Speedo

My speedo cable jammed and stripped the plastic gear a bit that goes into the speedo drive. Can you purchase the plastic gear only. I think it will work the way it is, but if I can replace the plastic gear, I would prefer that. I have a 3-0 drive and a 2.9, both plastic gears were damaged before I realized the real problem! :huh The plastic gear seems to be the same in both. I guess the metal gear in the speedo drive determines the ratio. The moto is a 1996 R1100GS. Thanks!

Is it the drive dog that contacts the aluminum piece? Often you can bend the aluminum. Only the aluminum piece is replaceable. Tried to swap gears from an R-R but in to the GS. Would not mesh up. For most cars you can buy the friggin nylon gear, not BMW.
