All of a sudden, my speedo & odometer & of course, cruise control quit on my 1991 Goldwing 1500. Where should I start?

I had the same thing happen, it turned out to be a broken speedometer cable.

The cable is the easiest thing to check. If not the cable it might be the drive gear on the wheel.

My speedo isn't out yet (well might be, haven't driven it....) but when i removed the wheel mounting (phillips) screw, the hole it goes in cracked apart and only the top 1/3 is left. it went on but barely holds. do I need to replace whole thing? where to get and what part # do I need? hard to look up anything w/ just a smartphone....
