Bike not shutting off.

Hi- I’m new to this forum so apologise if this issue has already been raised. I’m having issues my 2002 RSV Mille not switching off. Ignition, kill switch, side stand doesn’t work and can’t even stall it. I had to get under and disconnect my battery. My new battery is almost dead as a result also. I’ve ordered a starter solanoid, but after researching other scenarios I’m wondering if it could be an ignition problem? Was hoping someone could point me in the right direction- as it’s pretty weird- it’s like it was possessed by the devil! Thanks!

I'm sure you sorted this but it sounds most likely as you suspected an is a cheap starter solenoid that is causing it to run non stop
Make sure you use a genuine one when you replace it. The cheap Chinese ones off eBay have been known to do this

Yeah you’re spot on I think. I replaced the starter solanoid sometime last year when I was travelling so I probably just put in the first one o could find. So I replaced it with a good quality part and so far so good ��. Thanks
