I recently noticed that my speedometer and odometer wasn't working anymore. Did some research and thought maybe it was the speed sensor but after replacing it and the problem stayed the same, I'm not sure what to try next. I want it to work as well as the engine hour meter. The light inside the housing comes on. Any guesses?

If it's like a motorcycle, it could screw in somewhere, and it may have backed itself out.

I assume your 98 Foreman has the LCD display on it? There are a couple basic things you can check on those. The connector plugs can be going bad or have moisture/corrosion in them. I'm not sure whether those displays are fused or not... but check fuses just in case. Some of them quit working (or reset themselves periodically) due to bad/cracking/cold solder joints internally on the PCB. If thats the case, you may be able to fix it by reflowing all of those solder joints.

Does the oil temp warning light come on? Neutral & Reverse lights? Is it just the speedo, odometer, clock and hour meter that don't show up on the LCD? Do you see anything on the LCD in the dark if you shine a flashlight near it?
