There is a round plate on the right side of your engine. This is the timer cavity. It has the sensor inside it and it provides the pulses for your tachometer as well.

Speedo and rev counter dont work on my 2003 883r sposter


this may be the sensor problem.try changing the pick up sensor.
if the sensor is ok then it may be the cable which transmitts the signal may get damaged.check the cable for continuity.
if this also seems to be ok then the problem presists with the speedometer itself this may corrected by servicing the speedometer or changing the meter with new one.

My 1999 R1 rev counter just shoots upto 7000 when on tickover

Its a self diagnostic feature. It is telling you either the TPS is unplugged, the fuel level sensor is unplugged, or the EXUP valve is unplugged or frozen and not moving.
