Yep, it uses a cable to drive the speedo. It's probably snapped, it's an easy job so no need to go to a garage, fairly cheap too.

To check if it is the speedo cable take the cable off and turn one end of the inner, if the other end doesn't turn then that's your problem.

Lol, ok.

The cable is basically a tube with a wire going through it (like a push bike brake cable if that's any help).

Take cable off the bike buy unscrewing it at both ends, one goes in the back of the speedo and the other in the bottom of the forks. You might need a pair of pliers to turn it if it's stiff. The inner wire will be poking out a little at each end, give one end a twiddle and see if the other end moves.
