SOURCE: digital speedo jumping randomly up to299kmh not reading correct

The speedo drive sender is very common failure on these bikes following any maintenance involving the front wheel removal (like tire replacement) 
The speed sensor is located on front axle on the right side of the wheel 
The magnetic rotor gets broken because the drive detent is not properly engaged duing re-assembly. 
Fortunately the replacement is relatively inexpensive and reasonably easy to replace if you are careful to engage the drive properly when re-installing wheel. Insert the drive into the wheel before bringing wheel up to forks and inserting axle.

SOURCE: Speedo/Odo - cruise stopped working, directional not cancelling.

I am not sure if your bike has the VSS or not. The vehicle speed sensor. If so it could be the culprit. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your response. You are right the self cancel in the directionals is run by a speed sensor in the speedo head and signals the lights off."

SOURCE: suzuki vl 800 speedo dont work.

Have you had your front wheel off at any time?

What usually happens is the magnetic speed sensor at the front wheel was not lined up properly when the wheel was replace and it broke. A very common occurrence.

SOURCE: speed sensor location on a 2000 flhr

It should be on the left rear of the transmission case. It's held in place with an Allen bolt. Remove the bolt and twist the sensor while you pull it up to remove it. Clean the metal shavings off the bottom and reinstall. If this doesn't solve the problem, you may need a new sensor.

Why is speedo "sticky" after engine wash?

The washing process forced washing fluid into the speedometer cable or fitting. The cable may have to be replaced. Washing the engine often causes unexpected problems.

Speedometer needle

did you scan the ECU with a scan tool , and look to see if
the PID scan for SPEED is correct? "MPH" from VSS sensor?
Any stored DTC (errors)?
i will pretend , that you did and it was correct. (if wrong here , ask)
that means the speedo is bad. (if pcm sends right speed to speedo head and speedo head is wrong ,its is bad. replace it)
but do check all fuses, just in case...????

My headlights and dash lights flicker and now my wipers dont work

If the car cranks well then might have a loose connection to dashboard or a bad ground. I don't think this is much help but might be a starting place.

My probles is the spedomometer no funtion

If your odometer is working but you have no speedo check your connection at the speed sensor first. Is your Check engine light on?
If so check for speed sensor codes. if your odometer & speedo are both out your may be having a problem in your sppedo head which will require repair or replacement.
