Z2 gears slipping

The drive system in my Z2 seems to be slipping at the gears. I think it may be due to the white gear, the pin that goes in it seems to fit too loose but I'm not sure. I checked the gear teeth and they seem to be fine, and the drive bearings seem to be fine too. Can anyone with a Z2 compare their white drive gear?

Make sure the pin is located correctly in both parts. If you look into the drive from the side you can see if is or no. Sometimes you can push it over with a knife blade of a pick so it drops into location.

I managed to fix it with a slight mod, I wrapped a small piece of paper around the pin to make the gear fit more snugly on it, which got rid of the gear slipping. I do have a new white gear and drive belt coming in though, I'll throw those in and see if I still need that piece of paper on the pin.
