Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.

WhitI turn the key off and the lights stay on, If it is in neutral the motor will keep running for a few min. This started very suddenly.


Your ignition switch may be having issues (A dirty or shorting ignition contact base). The contact base can be replaced or taken apart and cleaned on most Honda ignitions (your ignition switch is replacement only). If your have a short in your starter solenoid, you could be powering the motorcycle from there. Try starting the motor cycle and unplugging the the starter solenoid activation wires from the harness, then turn the ignition off and see if the lights stay on and the motor keeps running then. The most common reason for some one to experience the run on issues you describe is crossed wires in the harness. Honda wire harnesses are color coded which makes this easy to check. If some one was working in the headlight bucket where all the harness connections are made it is quite possible that some wires were plugged in the wrong connectors. Look over all connections carefully the fix could be as easy as switching two wire connections.
