The speedo drive sender is very common failure on these bikes following any maintenance involving the front wheel removal (like tire replacement)
The speed sensor is located on front axle on the right side of the wheel
The magnetic rotor gets broken because the drive detent is not properly engaged duing re-assembly.
Fortunately the replacement is relatively inexpensive and reasonably easy to replace if you are careful to engage the drive properly when re-installing wheel. Insert the drive into the wheel before bringing wheel up to forks and inserting axle.

I am not sure if your bike has the VSS or not. The vehicle speed sensor. If so it could be the culprit. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your response. You are right the self cancel in the directionals is run by a speed sensor in the speedo head and signals the lights off."
SOURCE: suzuki vl 800 speedo dont work.
Have you had your front wheel off at any time?
What usually happens is the magnetic speed sensor at the front wheel was not lined up properly when the wheel was replace and it broke. A very common occurrence.

It should be on the left rear of the transmission case. It's held in place with an Allen bolt. Remove the bolt and twist the sensor while you pull it up to remove it. Clean the metal shavings off the bottom and reinstall. If this doesn't solve the problem, you may need a new sensor.
