    2003 RSVR tries to turn over when battery connected and wont stop turning over :(

    Bit of a weird problem I've run into with a new to me 2003 RSVR
    This is only my second time starting the bike, ever. Once when I bought it, and now this happens

    I put the bike on battery charger to make sure it has a good strong charge before starting it up today.
    A friend came by to see the bike and we wanted to hear the wonderful VTwin
    Put the key in, set to run
    Kill switch set to run
    Thumb the starter, bike fires up no problem
    Hit kill switch to turn off and the bike loses its mind
    Starter starts going again while its running
    Engine dies
    Starter is still turning
    Turn key off
    Starter still going
    Pull key out
    Starter still going

    Had to pull the seat and remove battery terminal to stop it
    Every time I connect the battery back, the starter just goes non-stop
    Even with the key completely removed from the bike

    This one is baffling me.

    Any help or points in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. I haven't even gotten to ride it
