Speedometer repair

I have a 2014 Vstrom DL650
I lubed my chain a few weeks ago & everything was fine! A couple of days ago my speedometer stopped working properly, it would flash different incorrect numbers of speed!
Yesterday when I took my bike out for a ride, as I rode off I heard a "clunk" noise from the rear of the bike & this morning I also heard a strange noise from the front of the bike!
The speedometer doesn't work at all now! It shows the gears, I think the milometer & odometer are still working, just the speedometer isn't & the noise from the rear & front (wheels I guess)!
Can someone please help me?

Yah, get a 15 year old Dl650, they seem more bullet proof.
That is sarcastic as all hell but the old ones are like the energizer bunny, they keep going and going.
I'm keeping my old ones!
It's really sad to read about the odd foibles the new bikes display. It ain't right, man!
