Go for a ride and take note of the trip counter/odo. Does it tick over? If it does then the problem is in the speedo unit itself and you're looking at a costly replacement. Internal speedo parts are not sold seperately. You replace the unit as a whole. In this case e-bay is your friend. ;-)
If that doesnt solve it, remove the cable from the speedo end, leave connected at the wheel. Inside the cable is the inner drive which looks like a tightly wound spring. You should be able to remove it from the cable in one piece. (Might as well oil it while it is out. Motor oil will do) It should come out in 1 piece. Have a look at the ends. They should have a part of it squared off where it fits in the speedo and the at the other end where it fits in the wheel drive gear. Now put the inner back into the cable and reconnect to the wheel only. On the speedo side(which should still be hanging loose) grip the inner by hand and try to turn it. You should be able to get about half a turn and when you release it, it should return to its original position. If this does not happen the problem is in the wheel. The inner is not seated properly in the drive gear or the gear is faulty. The same can also be true of the speedo end.
