Sounds like this is the only other thing besides a short wire somewhere or the ECU and I'm told it's unusual for those to go out. Thanks for the help, I'm off the the shop today to get a relay box ordered!!!

Not the ECU, that is for sure.

I know this is an older post but did anyone ever get to the bottom of this? My bike is having the exact same issue.
The starter motor is either stuck on or it comes on and stays on when you drive down the highway...

I have changed out 2 of those now.

The bike is a 2008. I think someone asked.

Does changing out the relay box fix the issue only for it to come back?

No the starter motor still is engaged. Changing the relay box does make the headlight come back on. But driving down the highway (like above 60) will kill the headlight.

My thoughts are to just put a switch into the high side of the motor and "fix" it from coming on....

1. What do you mean by the "high side"?
2. Do you want to do a little troubleshooting? No guarantees. If so, start a new thread with the history of this problem.
