Hi all - looking at the live data on my car with it off and not being on for a few days my bank 1 egt reads 32c as expected but my bank 2 1250c? What would cause this guessing it’s not right? May it also cause a light surging and slightly off idle? Thanks

What year is your car? 07+ got rid of egt and ecu uses default values instead. Unless it's an 06 or 05 that's normal.

It’s a late 05 although it had a rod bearing failure under warrant in 2010 and the latest spec engine was put in. I’m guessing the electronics remained though so would this be in use?

Probably yeah. Now.. if you don't have a code then I would not worry about it. ECU will flag a misbehaving sensor.
