Integrated Taillight Issue

Hey guys-

I recently upgraded to a 2011 ZX10r and have made a few aftermarket changes to it.

I am kind of in a spot where I don't know what else to do.

I bought a Hotbodies integrated taillight and everything works fine (brakes, l/r signals) until I get off the bike and switch the engine off. When I do this, a small led light in the middle of the light stays on. I checked to make sure that I didn't have the bike in park mode where the lights might stay on and when the key is completely out it still does this.

As of now I am stumped, so if anyone has had this issue or knows how to fix it I would greatly appreciate the help.

Thanks

Hmm interesting... Seems that the led still stores volts even if the circuit is already cut off. I would double check the installation there might be a short some where.

I found out that it was a security light actually. It stays on for almost three hours after turning the bike off. Thanks for the feedback though.
