Speedometer on my 2003 volusia stopped working, lights are OK what do you think is the problem

It sounds very much like the Speed Sensor has failed, it will need to be replaced. If this is not the problem then the Speedo itself could have failed but very unlikely.

Speedometer not working

Alot of the time is vibrates and unscrews from the back of the speedometer. If it is screwed in on both sides, unscrew them both and turn the cable with your fingers to make sure it isn't broke.

Speedometer not working

Check your speedometer gear box, it probably got bumped during removal/installation. The cable may have got pulled out. You can see the gearbox here:

2004 suzuki volusia 800 speedometer stopped working i was told it was the cable, but it randomly works so it can not be the cable, how can i fix this

I had this problem. there is a speed sensor in the front wheel hub. it is behind the brake and the axel goes through it. if you take the front wheel off you will notice it hanging down on a thick hose/cable. if it isnt aligned right when you put it back on, it will not read or will break off the little wings that seat in the wheel. the piece i am talking about normally falls out when you take the wheel off. the housing for it is what I described above. it is the flower looking piece in the pic in the link below.
