After winter service on my Honda Magna VF750. Still runs, but gas drip underneath tank. Possible gasket damage? What all needs done? Change oil and filter and what else?

You may have a loose fuel line after doing your winter service. Check that they are all snug. If the petcock had force applied to it, you may have damaged the petcock and will need a replacement.
Also check the bottom of the tank and the seams, ensure that the tank isn't rusting from the inside out. I had a V65 Sabre do that once - from previous owner improperly storing bike with only a tiny amount of gas in tank.

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.

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.
