I can only suggest that the pinion gear seized, because someone washed the old grease out of the drive assembly. It is the only way I can explain how the Circlip Flange gets completely shattered Off of the hub. And It appears as thou teeth are stripped off of the ring gear also, 1st time I've seen a pic of that.
There is NO Way to re-grease the pinion, but it can be oiled. Too late in this case.
Without the circlip,(do you even have one? No way to retain it now.) the wheel might be able to 'walk' side to side about .020", back and forth across the bearings.
Proper repair would be a Replacement hub or used wheel assembly and a replacement speedo drive.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
