Angry 2011 sportsman spedometer won't work

My spedometer won't work on my 2011 sportsman 500. It lights up and everything seems to work fine except for spedometer and odometer. It shows hours, clock, and everything else.

I replaced the speedo today and still the same.

I love my little machine and although it is better if my husband doesn't know, I would like to know the speed I am going.

Any idea would be great, especially inexpensive ones!

Sensor, Speed

Could just be a wire broken or unplugged but the sensors go bad pretty regular. Speedo hardly NEVER goes bad unless wrecked.
Mounts on the side of the transmission with one bolt and takes about 5 minutes to replace. Number 77 in the picture.

Here's one on ebay:
Polaris Sportsman 550 850 XP Hall Effect Speed Sensor 4012167 | eBay

Or Partzilla:
4012167 SENSOR-SPEED,TRANS $45.50
