Tachometer works but speedometer does not. Just recently happened following a drenching in a rain storm

Take off your front wheel and make sure the speedo cable is positioned well. Try turning the speedo connector. If too easy, you may have broken the cable. Check, a guy in Cleveland deals exclusively in Honda V65s used parts if your cable is trashed. He posts once a week or so.

When I first start my 84 Honda V65 SABRE, after its been sitting overnight or longer. I full choke it then start it. It idles very slow and almost stalls if I give it throttle it stalls. If I just leave it...

check for a vacume leak, as its been along time since i've looked at one of these is there a vacuum pipe on the distributor, this is the advanced timing if it has one on this engine, there is a diaphragm in this that over time can leak, this leaking would make hard starting on cold start if its failing.

Yes there should be a compartment on the right side that has a keyed lock on it. If you have a fairing on the bike, theres a compartment on the left side of it. Also, some riders will place a document holder under the seat.
Hope this helps...

Honda V65 magna. Will run fine for about 20 min then stalls.

Check your pick-up coil, I'll bet good money it's the culprit.
