Adjust your brake light switch ... it may be defective. Find it near the lever and or inder the pedal linkage.

There is a switch on the handlebar brake lever and a pressure switch somewhere along the metal rear brake line. Since they change the location of this pressure switch from time to time and I don't know exactly where it is on your bike, just follow the metal brake line that comes out of the back of your rear brake master cylinder. You'll recognize it when you see it. It will have two or four wires connected to two spade plugs.
If I were a betting man, I'd bet that someone at some time has loosened the master cylinder on the handlebars to adjust something or taken the throttle switch housing loose. The front brake light switch in located inside the throttle switch housing. If the master cylinder and the switch housing are not firmly pushed against each other, the brake lever will not depress the front brake switch when your release the brake. This will cause the brake light to stay on all the time. Loosen the master cylinder clamp bolts and slide the master cylinder and brake lever snuggly against the face of the switch housing. This will probably fix your problem. If not, you'll need to do a little electrical troubleshooting to determine whether the front brake switch or the rear pressure switch is bad. For this, you'll need a Volt Ohm meter and a wiring diagram.
Try the switch first.
