Well, I'm having an 'ever-so-slight' problem with my fretting hand, I can't reach 16ths at 200bpm, I can only get to about 185-190bpm, However, my picking hand is fine I can do 200bpm comfortably. So any advice or tips on catching up to my right (picking) hand?

Also any advice on getting my picking hand to tap faster?

Don't worry about it.

Relax. Practice. Focus on something else for a while, then come back to it.

Don't chase the numbers; they're meaningless anyway and setting speed goals is ultimately detrimental to your overall playing as well.

You cannot directly improve speed: it's not a skill, it's a result of other skills. Improve your technique and speed will take care of itself.

What you need to work on is being relaxed and making smaller movements.

Play "The flight of the bumble bee"! Start slowly and then increase your speed. This one really helped me
