Embarrassingly, in an attempt to install a CARC guard, I ended up pinching the speedo cable between the brake caliper and the guard thus killing my Odometer and Speedometer reading and throwing up a huge "SERVICE" sign. Anyone know where I can purchase a new one?

Although new ones aren't too expensive, if it's just the cable wires (not too close to the sensor) you could probably fix the damaged ones/all of them permanently or temporary - soldering iron, shrink sleeves, tape or connectors + waterproofing ?

It might be a real stinker to snake a new line from the sender to wherever it connects to the harness. Check that first to see if it's worth the effort to do a repair vs. replacement.

They connect via 2 pin plug under seat just back of the tank.

Yes they are easy to replace i am on my third! I liked the second one as it showed me a top speed of 187mph :-) i have done a few more miles since that odometer reading too!!!
