light doesn't turn off

Just replaced the battery on my K1300GS with an Odyssey battery. Noticed that the front light (the two upper ones) doesn't turn off after switching off the ignition switch. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: light doesn't turn off

key off and out it stays illuminated?
MAkes one think there are programmabble functions of the lights that reverted to default with the battery removed.

Re: light doesn't turn off

thanks for your reply. I looked at the owner's manual for the parking light function, tried de-activating it by switching ignition on and off, but still the parking light didn't turn off, even after removing the key.

Re: light doesn't turn off

Is this a case of delayed action, like my tail lamp on the S bike?

Re: light doesn't turn off

Could be. What was your solution? I've had to disconnect the battery to avoid the continued drain.

I bet Bill Morgan is on the phone with a dealer now trying to order a K1300GS.
