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

2005 kawasaki vulcan classic 800 oil type


Owner's manual should have it, If not You can go to a retailer with a power sports lookup input make, model, size and year.
And you will receive recommendations for use in your climate.
Call the service department at your dealer to book an oil change and ask for an estimate, chances are they will mention the type of oil used or options available for your model.
I know Amsoil products, and I know they have a power sports oil/product look up search engine, what you buy is up to you, but it will give you the type and viscosity for yours.
