Speedometer registering wrong speed - Honda CG125 2005

I am having problems with my speedometer. It keeps registering the wrong speed. Basically I'll start the bike off and it'll tinker about between 0-10 MPH then when I start to get some real speed going, it'll start raising on the meter. We ran a test yesterday where I would stick at 45 MPH on a straight road with a friend behind me with a more accurate electronic speedometer.

From the tests, 30MPH on my speed meter is actually 45MPH. 20MPH on the speedo is just above 30MPH. We couldn't get any readings below that as it would just tinker a lot from 0-10 if we went slower. The bike model is the Honda CG125 2005.

We did clear out the speed gear at the wheel and cleared out any old grease and put in new stuff. We let it set till today, I took the bike out for a 10-20 minute ride and it still seems to be slow.

Does anyone have an idea what would be wrong or have had a similar problem to this? I'd appreciate any help.

Many Thanks.

Found the problem, something got into the speedometer somehow and has caused it to break mechanically.

Would anyone happen to know where I could buy a new speedometer for my model? I'v took a look around but none the same :/
