Speedometer erratic display

Hey all,

09 DL-1000 with a sick speedometer. Only happens when the ambient temperature is hot. The needle fluctuates wildly with any transient in the bike voltage i.e. signal light, horn, shift low to high to low beam, etc.... When I come to a stop no the speedometer goes to it seems there are no stray voltage signals. Looking for ideas, voltage regulator issues? etc...appreciate any help

I'd yank the dash pieces and check for loose plugs and connectors. Make sure your battery connections are tight and clean.
