I hope i responded quickly. The speedometer needle movement is caused by the speedometer cable that runts to your front wheel's gear unit. Check for the cable that goes near the axle of your front wheel and check that its properly screwed. Put the bike on stand and spin the wheel, if it still doesnt responed. Remove the cable, unscrew it near the front wheel axle first and try spinning the small "squared wire" inside, if you still can't get any action on the speedometer. Then chances are either your speedometer cable is cut in the middle or the speedometer display is jammed (unlikely). Remove the cable from the speedometer unit and check that it is freely rotating. Oil it and put back.
Next, we need to check for the gear near the axle of your front wheel. Screw the speedometer cable to the gear unit near the axle with the other end removed from the speedometer unit. Spin the wheel and check that the inner cable is responding or spinning.. If it doesnt, then your speedometer gears are worn out. Disassemble the front wheel and bring the gear assembly to the nearest parts dealer for purchase. Normally, they don't sell a repair kit so you'll need to purchase the whole gear assembly.
whichever the case, either you purchase a speedometer cable or the gear unit. Seldom will the speedometer unit be destroyed.
pardon me for not organizing this response as you were requesting a quick solution .. so i answered as quick as i could... hehe. Hope this helps!

I have had this problem myself, it sounds as that you need to have the clutch changed. The pad are more than likely worn and the plates might be burnt and warped, but you might get lucky and just have to replace the pads, but plan for the worse. Adjusting will only prolong the need to replace and it wont last long and will cause more expense.
