The 15 tooth gear on my 1050 is completely gone. I don't have the time, means, or money to fix it right now. Still operates in low 2 and low 3. After changing the gear oil, will it hurt anything to keep running it as is?

Shouldn't but make sure you have all the pieces out.

As long as all those pieces are not rolling around in that oil to cause more damage elsewhere you should be good to go as all the damage is already done.

Be OK but if you run it like that you might have to change your user name.

My cluster gear looked exactly like yours did with no teeth left on it. After draining the oil and using an extended magnet to get all the pieces out I pulled the transmission apart to get the gear repaired. When all the parts were out I was surprised at how many metal chunks were still hiding in the bottom of the case. I'd be very reluctant after that experience to just drain it all out and hope for the best. Were lucky there's a way to repair that 15 tooth gear. But the rest of the gears may be harder to come by if you trash those later. Just my opinion though.

just looking quickly at the picture - you have some other "damage/wear" on the other gears - might be worth using a solvent to clean out all the old oil to check for pieces and flush out contaminants then use all new stuff and "be gentle" - good luck....

There's a risk that particles and fragments of the gear will get into your bearings and cause additional wear. I don't know how much of a concern that is for you; I had a similar problem on my 750 and it had probably been that way for years before I got it.
