Welcome, but if we knew what bike it is we may know if it has a cable drive or and electronic drive, or transmission speed sensor,etc.

Speed sensor on the front wheel and electronic wiring to speedo. Maybe the drive gear is damaged in the wheel hub?
I don't have the same bike but others guys can help here.

Check to be sure it's threaded onto the back of the speedometer. Also the mounting tab (#19) @ the wheel could be cracked or broken as it is a weak design due to plastic can be over torqued. Never had speedo fail other than cable hook up problem or broken cable and that only happened once in 50 yrs. of riding.
