    when i was clearly doing around 45-50..
    Did you check it with a GPS or are you just guessing?
    And most bikes run fast from 7% to 10% and that when you have a good bike. lol
    Or because your bike is a Chinese brand it could off been set up for KMh and as been marked up MPH so at 80 KMh is 50 MPH.

    So, you ride 50, and speedo shows 70? This looks like problem with the speed gauge. Pinion and cable could show different symptoms.

    Bad/worn/damaged pinion and/or cable makes speed gauge jerking, before they eventually die and the gauge stays on 0.

    So, it looks that you have a problem with the clock.

    And I presume that the biggest problem will be how to open this clock, not how to fix it.

    I would just buy another one but i cant find one to buy anywhere.....???
    Because i dont know how to change gears without breaking...unless i get an electronic speedo on the newer models. I can get the different speedo drive but dont know if the loom would fit?

    Holly cow, it appears that this WK is fitted with the speedo on display. Those are not my cup of tea. If is crucial for you to have speedo, you can use as provisional solution, till you don't fix it, those cheap bicycle speedos with magnet.
