I thought the only light related relay under the tank is for the brake light system. Dunno that for sure, butt I would like to know what lights remained on.sheldan2 said:One of your relays under the tank has gone bad.
I had this happen to me, took a while to find the culprit.
Your comment made me go look at the diagrams again and you are absolutley correct. The load relief relay is energized by switched power and the feed is right off the battery. When the starter engages the relay loses the ground and opens the circuit. A shorted load relief will light all the loads. Thanks for helping me get straight on that.sheldan2 said:john, with mine, the headlight would not go out, I thought it was the ignition switch, changed it out and the headlight would still not go out. I replaced the load shed relay and it fixed the problem. I am not saying that Jim's problem is not his ignition switch, just saying that once I replaced my relay it fixed the issue with my lights staying on after I had turned the bike off.
