help lights wont turn off

My 94 model has a little problem when I turn off the key all the lights stay on. I figured maybe it was the ignition switch but I unplugged the ignition switch & they all still stay on if any one could help out I would appreciate it. Thanks,Kyle

Check the main harness around the neck, under the seat, and fuel tank. Look for a smashed or worn area, you have a couple wires smashed or melted together or a bad JB.

Very likely the JB relay was stuck on.

Well I got an email from battery mart today saying they had to get my battery from the factory & it will be at least the 23rd before they ship it out this stinks. Oh well at least its not an only bike I just wanted it sooner than that.
