Stem broke on Odometer knob!

My stem broke off my odomerter knob and this is how I gauge my fuel tank. I keep the piece in my jacket and can shove it in after I fill my tank and reset to 000. Can I replace just the know or do I have to get a whole new speedo assy? Anyone else have this happen, its an 06 T100

Is the really tiny screw that holds it in place still there? If so you can probably use your broken off piece to hold it from rotating as you loosen it out.

It's a number 0 Philips screw in there. If it's the knob that's broken, you can buy it separately.

Edit: I see that Ruger beat me to it. So there's your answer. If the stem itself is broken, I think that you're out of luck.

If it works by sticking the piece in it seems it should be able to be replaced.
Guessing here.

The screw may have just come out and your 'broken' knob could still be complete. Check this thread out and my comments at post #15

Or go straight to the post where I describe my fix at post #8 http://www.triumphrat.net/twins-tech...eset-knob.html

Dammit the same thing happened to me this weekend. I fiddled with my speedo and the knob fell off! That'll teach me to play with my clock. Lucky I didn't go blind.

This is a common one usualy the screw comes out and you lose the knob.....Replace the knob and screw then push Plastocene or Bluetack right down the hole to stop the screw undoing....you can allways dig it out if you want to remove he knob.....
