I am not familiar with your bike but I am familiar with troubleshooting speedometer issues.
Firstly, determine if your speedometer is mechanically driven or an electronic/magnetic style.
My old bike had a mechanical speedometer. You need to check if it is connected from end to end. The hub needs to be engaged with the sprocket on the wheel. If it is and the gears are spinning properly then the cable should spin and make the speedometer needle move. A quick way to isolate the trouble is if you can remove the cable from the hub on the wheel, attach that end of the cable to a power drill and see if you can get the speedometer to register the movement. I believe reverse setting on the drill is the proper rotation direction.
My current ride has the magnetic type. There is a slotted insert in the front wheel the magnetic pickup detects as the wheel moves. Make sure the wires are connected and solid from end to end. I recently corrected the issue with mine (wonky but not completely off) by massaging the wires in the sleeve until it was smooth and a bit of electrical tape at the top to prevent kinking of the wires behind the four prong connector. I also moved the wire harness connection to a more horizontal position, secured with a zip tie, to eliminate the tugging at the soft spot.
