Does anyone have a spare speedo drive ( and no I am not talking about the all too brief swim suit version)

My speedometer quit and I discovered apparently I was suppose to be treating the speedometer drive gears at the front wheel assembly to lots of tender care and love.  Upon checking it out I found out the worm gear was frozen solid and the helix gear which is Nylon was chewed up to where it wouldn't even turn.

Others might want to baby this unit atleast each time you have the front wheel off. I can't get the worm gear to even loosen up after soaking it so I assume it is gauled up inside and doesn't appear to be able to be taken apart.   

Surly someone has an RT  (mine is a 96 r-11rt) that has gone from viable motorcycle to paper /parts bike.

Thanks for any help
