Have you tested the battery yet?

Thank you all for your suggestions, I've had enough for one day, so will get back to it next week.
I've checked the battery volts with multi meter which is the extent of my testing equipment for battery's and was on optimiser all night.
On turning on ignition, clock lights come on, rev counter goes round then back, abs light flashes, oil light comes on but no neutral light, no fuel level and no gear number or n(neutral) on LCD screen and the alarm has started to arm with ignition on even though the above is either lit or on.
The large print giveth, the small print take the away

What voltage did you record from the battery when it was fully charged?

The bike dying mid ride and the alarm playing up could well be connected, a faulty alarm will kill the ignition (and therefore probably engine cranking also). Is it a Triumph Datatool alarm?

I believe it is yes. I have owned the bike for around 18mths and looking through information passed on and the alarm remote has the Triumph emblem.

Looking through the info the alarm is a datatool s4 if that helps further.

Possible clue....all of the items you have listed in your post as not functioning  correctly are powered by a single 5V supply line directly from the ECU. On my schematic it is shown as a pink/black wire. An easy test might be to check for 5V on the pink/black wire going to the fuel sender connector. That might be easy to access.
Another thought, the Fall Detector Switch, which is in that group, would also cause the symptoms you describe.
And make sure you disconnect any Alarm device you may have added to the bike as an extra.

Laterally unstable unless moving.

It is simple enough to disconnect the alarm, however the bike harness then needs the original blanking/shorting plug refitted (which theoretically the dealer/installer is supposed to return to Datatool with the warranty paperwork). Being on my 3rd alarm on my Tiger (and knowing the chaos an alarm fault can cause) I now carry a blanking plug I aquired in my tyre repair kit. The plug basically has 2 small looping wires on it. The details of the pins to short may be on here somewhere or I could dig my plug out tomorrow and put some details/pics up.
I would certainly want to eliminate the alarm given your symptoms.
