Weird speedometer problem (not working)

I bought a 98 DR350SE and working a few kinks out including the fact the speedometer doesnt work. I bought a new cable, installed and nothing. I started breaking it down, and here is what I can tell you:

The tire rolled in reverse spins the cable CLOCKWISE, does not spin at all when tire rolling forward.

Speedometer (using drill) only shows speed when spun COUNTER CLOCKWISE, and shows nothing when spun clockwise.

(In both cases the cable was accessed/looked at on other end, meaning the cable works)

Needless to say, I am at a loss as to what to do here, as it almost seems like multiple problems. Any idea on what to do here?

first thing I would look at is the drive off the wheel. there should be something like two metal tabs in the hub that fit a slot in the drive. if the wheel gets put on and the tabs are in the wrong place the tabs get bent & you lose the drive motion. sometimes it will work... then not, then it will, then not depending on if it can still catch once in a while

So I opened it up, and there is this white drive gear that is worn away super bad. The question now is, can such a piece be found somewhere, and if not, can I use cheaper speedometer gears, are they only based on the size of the axle? Thanks for recommendations.
