Speedometer problems

Hello. I am new the the forums, and hope someone can give me some input. I have an '03 Sportsman 700 and my speedometer, odometer, and my hr meter quit working. Where should I start? I would like to fix it myself. Could it be the sensor in the right front hub? Any help would be great! I should probably add that I have been in the mud quit a bit with it, and that probably played a part in it.

The Hall sensor only reads the holes in the brake disc to count miles and speed. If the hour meter don't work you have other problems in the speedo itself.
