The two switches you are having problems with are thermetically controlled; they can easily short out which will cause the light to stay on. First what I'd like you to do is disconnect them at the sending unit, if the lights still stay on you have a short somewhere deeper in the wiring. Most likely it will be a grounded wire. If the lights do go off you will then want to use an OHM meter to check continuity at the senders. If you get solid resistance then the sending unit is shorted out, if one remains open then isolate the other. You may have a situation that one switch is causing both to stay lit.
Let me know if this helps you out at all. Tell me if you don't have the resources to co the diagnostics as described and I'll be happy to give you a work around. We will just have to be a little creative.
Either way let me know and I'll be happy to help you resolve the issue. I'm inclined to thing your problem is a short not a heat related issue since both sending units are both indicating a problem.
Regards,
RSelvy

Is the actual cable square? There should be a square hole that has to line up with your square cable. Slide the square cable into the square hole, then just screw the nut back on.

SOURCE: How or where do you check the coolant level on a

I believe on this model, that you have to remove the instrument display that is on the tank. There should be one 8mm bolt in the center of the chrome housing. Remove the bolt, then push the housing forward towards the handlebars. After removing the housing, you should see a small reservior with what looks like a radiator cap on it. There should also be an overflow tank located bottom center of the bike. It should have a sight glass on it to see the fluid level.
