Welcome to the forum.
Check earth wire. Do all these run through a relay?
It has to be something common to all of the displays.

I'd pull out the dash and check the connector as others have stated. Might have just vibrated free.

Then again it could be a battery issue too. Does the bike start?

This might be a long shot but disconnect both leads from the battery for 10 mins or so and reconnect if you havent already done that.
Do you have a multi meter or test light?

Found this;
Instrument Light Electrical Cluster
The instrument lights are fed by a gray wire that comes from a large blue connector located directly behind the windscreen. This single gray wire then travels inside a sheath with a bunch of other wires down to the area directly below the instruments. It is here that things get interesting. Four gray wires (one each from tach, speedo, gas gauge, and ignition switch are crimped together with the single gray wire and the crimp is stuffed up inside the sheath the gray wire came down in. This has been known to cause problems on the Bandit. If your instrument lights are not working test the circuit. Unsnap the large blue connector and also unsnap a small connector located directly under the instruments. (this connector goes to the ignition switch) With a continuity checker check continuity from the gray wire in the blue connector to the gray wire in the small connector. If you do not have continuity then this is the culprit. You'll have to fix the electrical connections in this bundle to get your instument lights to work again.

Just tracked down the problem, the ignition switch is faulty, thats where the gauges get there power from. Thanks for all your help, i now know a lot more about the Bandit electrics than when i first started. Ive just jumped the power from another source for now, will see if i can pull the switch apart over the next couple of days.
Cheers

Nothing wrong with the wines in the Ferguson Valley either. If you don't know already the Margaret river region is a term used for wineries within about 150 - 200kms from Margaret river. It's a bit of a joke really.
