Replacement Gears for Nintendo 64 Analog Stick

These Nintendo 64 Replacement Gears allow you to replace your damaged or old gears in your original N64 controller, making them work like they should again. Fix broken analog sticks!

Keep the feel of the OEM controller instead of replacing the stick with one that does not feel quite the same...

Revive your worn out analogue stick with new gears and get back in the game!


  • High Quality Injection Molded Replacement Part
  • Set of 2 gears (needed for each analog stick)
  • Compatible with Official Nintendo 64 (OEM) Controllers
  • Assembly required

 Worn out gears need replacing!

As you can see in the pictures, your original gears wear down as you play. These injection molded replacement gears can restore your joystick to its old glory (or fairly close!). All parts inside the controller slowly wear down, but the gears go the fastest and are the easiest thing to change to get the most bang for your buck. 

It is recommended to use some Super Lube (optional purchase available) when you install new gears to help prevent future wear.  Just rub it in the opening with a toothpick or similar and also put a small amount in the white plastic bowl  with a pinky tip and lastly some people like to put some on joystick part that interacts with the gears.


Injection Molded for the best quality!

These gears are mold injected POM which means they have very little to 0 artifacting or defects resulting in a smooth moving gear for precise play with your Nintendo 64 games.

Other Gears that are 3D printed however, can have miss-aligned or insufficiently defined gear teeth, artifacting and most importantly 3d print lines which can leave a rougher result for your joystick.



Super Lube 82340 1ML Small Tube 

Prolong your gears life with some of the best lubrication you can get! Super Lube 82340 Multi Purpose Synthetic Grease has excellent compatibility with our POM gears. This small 1ML tube is enough to lubricate 10-20 gear sets when used sparingly. (you might even stretch it further, as you really only need to lubricate the mouth of the gears where the joystick moves in them).

 If you are purchasing more than 1 set of gears and do not want super lube with each one, add the gears without lube and use THIS link instead.

    N64 Controller Joystick Gears Replacement

    Posted by Julio Adrian Longoria on Jan 17th 2024

    I’ve purchased a hand full of these gears from Stone Age Gamer in the past month for repairs on several N64 controllers with bad joysticks. After doing the repairs for each controller I’ve come to find out that it was the most affordable and best investment I could have made for repairing N64 controllers. Each controller I worked on functioned just as good as OEM or closest to it! The joysticks are responsive with the slightest movement and work really well. The replacement gears is the simplest solution for fixing N64 controllers at a reasonable price. I highly recommend anyone attempting or wanting to attempt fixing their N64 controller joysticks to go with the gear replacement option. Also, be sure to include the lube for the gears to ensure the lifespan of the new gears and functionality of the joysticks. A single tube of lube can be used for multiple repairs if used sparsely; a little bit of lube goes a long way! Overall, I am highly satisfied with the quality of the product itself and the end results of the repairs I’ve made so far!

    The item shipped way sooner than expected and arrived in perfect condition. It was very easy to install and works great. I would definitely recommend this product if your joystick is loose. It worked like a charm and costs way less than getting a brand-new controller.

    Great Replacement Gears

    Posted by Tayler on Oct 4th 2022

    I was using my original N64 controller for Super Smash Bros. and it was very loose from use over the years. These replacement gears definitely made a difference to my precision and overall game-play experience. I would highly recommend these gears if you need to fix up an old controller.
