If you're talking about the speedo there are a few things to try:
1) unscrew the speedo cable, put the end of the cable in a drill and spin it while looking at the speedo. Make sure the drill is spinning it the right direction. If the speed doesn't move it's either the cable or the speedo itself.
2) remove the speedo adapter, the little silver thing underneath the secondary clutch where the cable attaches to. If the little silver key isn't broken that goes from the driveshaft to the adapter it could be a few thing. Take the key and spin it in the adapter. If the other side spins (where the cable attaches) the adapter works. If it doesn't spin you need a new speedo adapter.
3) check bearings on the driveshaft if there is any play in the driveshaft usually the bearings need to be replaced. This also causes the key in the adapter/driveshaft to break.
I would start there and get back to us
