Hi and welcome to FixYa,
The reason that the flashing speed of LED indicators are faster/different from the standard bulbs is because the original flasher were designed for the current flow of bulb types. A LED type indicator offers very low resistance and consumer very little current hence the original flasher fails to operated correctly.
Your idea of changing the flasher relay is correct. Electronic/LED flashers are available here, here and/or here.

Do you have the kickstand up when you put it in gear? Many bikes have a lockout on the side stand to prevent you riding away with the stand down. Kills the engine instantly when placed in gear with the stand down.

You definitely have a short, sometimes this is very easy to find or very hard, patience my friend. Apart from the ignition switch there is another switch that turns off the motor even though the ignition switch is on position, this might be on either side of the handles. This might be causing the problem this switch grounds the ignition coil and the engine turns off. I have heard a lot about this problem and this switch causes the problem. Maybe this might be your case
