Speedometer gauge replacement

I want to swap the speedometer gauge on my bike as the trip meter does not work. Mine is also in KPH and I would prefer one that reads in MPH.
I noticed that the small knob on the end of the trip reset looks as though it will not pass through the smaller hole in the side of the chrome housing. Can this knob be removed to allow removal of the gauge and the fitting of another gauge? I could just go and try pulling it off, but thought it's worth asking first. Obviously the knob on the new gauge would also have to be removed to fit it in my housing. Presumably Kawasaki must have added the knob after fitting the gauge, but just wondered if it was glued on. I don't want to snap it. Anybody??

It's a small Phillips screw inside the knob
