So... I previously noted that the speedo on my 86 vt1100 didn't seem to work so I pulled the cable and rolled the bike around the garage and the cable works fine. After installing new pipes I just took it for a run around the block and it still does not register speed but the odometer works... I've consulted my manual and searched the forum but mostly seems like broken cables where mine turns as it should... Is my gauge just dead?

It could just be stuck. The faster you go the harder the needle will be pulled and possibly freed. How fast do you dare go.
Or, remove the speedo cable from the front wheel and spin the core with a high speed drill. tap on the speedo.
Or, disassemble the speedo and see what's hanging it up. There are you-tube videos on how to disassemble.
