Don't overlook the obvious.
Thats actually a very interesting point and reminded me of another little issue that completely slipped my mind. Once I came off the motorway down to lower speeds (30-40mph) the bike 'glitched' for a split second and the speedo stopped recording speed. The bike continued to run, and the tacho continued to work but the speedo read '0 mph'.

It continued like this for about 5 minutes, only when I opened the throttle and got up to higher speeds it jumped back to life again and started working as normal.
