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.

2007 Yamaha Road Star Silverado neutral light stays on


Hi, Yexer #2 or #5 and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. If the neutral light stays on while the bike is in gear the wire from the light to the neutral switch is grounded.
The ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
The above checklist is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

Security light remains on


This happens when the ignition can't read the key. If it is not starting when it does this. to fix this leave the key in the on position not running for 10 min or till the security key flashes and turn it off wait 5 seconds and then start it. If the light stays on and it is running just drive it like that put some electrical tape over the light. ours has bin on for 84,000 km and this no start thing has happened a few times this is a common gm problem. hope this helps you.

How do you reset passlock?


Turn the key to run position (engine not running) theft light will flash a few times and stay on. Leave for approximately 10 minutes (may take up to 20 min.) And the theft light will turn off. Repeat these steps 3 times. After the third turn the key off and attempt to start.

Lots of stuff !
#1 If you can ,try to start it in neutral.
#2 In park hold the key so start and have an assistant rap the
starter motor lightly with a bar or whatever(if that works the brushes
in the starter are going,starter time)
#3 turn on the headlights ,have your assistant watch,they should
be bright,then turn the key,if the lights stay bright,it's a fault of the
starter or key/ignition system. If the lights go dim or out it's just
a battery terminal connection.
A few things to try anyway,good luck.
