This is a whacky one, for sure.
Most electrical things are simple black and white, and easy to find. You're in a real grey area now!
Still, the simplest way to figure this kinda stuff out is to remove, or replace components until the problem goes away, and you can repeat the results. Thus my recommendation - removing the instrument panel is a biatch though.
If things keep moving around, it's usually best to find the common thread between them - either the ECU, instrument, or wiring harness are good bets.
But the latter two can be pulled out and you can still run the bike.
If nothing else works, find a buddy w/ an RR and swap ECUs to see if things switch places.
EDIT - instead of the horn, you could just pull out a little extra current some other way - you have a 1W 250ohm resistor handy, right? Drop it across your Engine Stop relay's coil to see if that'll turn the bike off after you've flipped the killswitch off.
OR perhaps more likely is a 12V light bulb, it'll pull a decent current.
