Is it possible to buy just the Nylon gear for the s9451? It appears on futaba's site they sell just the nylon gears for servos but their chart doesnt list one for s9451. All Ive been able to find is the full gear set for $25.
You can send the servo back to Futaba for service - http://www.futaba-rc.com/service.html. They will be able to replace just that gear, replace the lead, and "tune up" the servo. Last few times I sent my servo's in for similar problems, it cost abour $25 with shipping. You can also request a few spare gears sent back with the servo.

If anyone has searched recently for the nylon gear only to repair the s9451 or the new s9452 you can call futaba and order the gear from them direct 217-398-0007 $2.05 a piece.
Just something I just found out and thought others would like to know.
I just broke a couple of gears in the last month and I was searching for info.
I google searched s9451 nylon gear and this thread showed up.
You never know whats going on sometimes.
Hope it helps.
