    Hey guys, I recently blew the plastic gear out of my speedo drive and am looking for a replacement that doesn't cost 45 bones from KTM. I know thats not insanely expensive but I'm a grad student and perpetually broke so if I can get one cheaper, I'm all about it.

    I have a 97 620 RXCe with upside down forks and a skinny front axle. There is not too much on fleabay right now and was wondering if I could cross ref to a different make.

    Lemmie know if you guys have traveled down this path before!

    My son has broken two, it's a bad design.
    Use your GPS, mounts are cheap.

    The bike has been pressed into daily commuter duties and I have been wedging my GPS in my tank bag but have been getting tired of not knowing my mileage. I've had a few "What the hell? Oh, I'm running out of gas." moments and they're getting old.
