Speedometer shows 299 km/h :o

I doubt you're having a cross talk problem between the speed sensor and rpm sensor.
The one thing that bothers me is that it seems you are reporting an unstable voltage source. You can't really count on other tests if you have voltages that should be stable in the nominal 12 vdc range jumping down to 6 or 7 volts. Fix what ever is causing those low readings first because that could very likely be the source of your instrument problem.
It could be due to so many starts and stops in my garage. I didn't see it when I first got the bike a few weeks ago. I think my measurement was originally 12.2v not running, then around 13 something on idle, and 14,04v when running the throttle a bit. But hey, could be that I touched some loose wire or such. Will investigate this throughly tomorrow.

You might have a bad battery. The static voltage should be 12.6V, mid-13’s at idle and 14.2 to 14.4 at 5000 rpm. Charge that battery up and let it sit over night and check the static voltage before a start and then after a brief start (only let it run for a few seconds).
