Wadmaemgee, yup its a small black cube rubber mounted on outside of the frame through the tail cover, about half way along the tail aperture, next to the rectifier on the LH side. The one on the inside of the rail is the tip sensor, disconnectthat and the bike probably wont run.
i would send piccy but my RC is in the shop right now for suspension work, but I would advise trying disconnecting the rear running lights/side lights too, as a steady instrument light may indicate a permanent feed possibly caused by having a running light crossed somehow with one of your indicator feeds.
The reason I suggest the relay, as weyrauch, is putting turn signals from filament bulbs to LEDS can have funny effects due to incorrect loading on the OEM relay. elsewhere on here there is a link for a replacement solid state one, which I fitted to mine about three weeks ago to cure the rapid blink rate, $24 shipped. (Ledcustom).
Apologies for basics, but remote diags are difficult. Did this constant light occur after your fixing the previuos owners work or was it present on purchase whith the front turn signals missing? If the former I would suspect the undertail installation wiring may have a turn signal/ running light possibly earth return wrong. Only way to know is to disconnect there to see if it goes. A proper aftermarket modification ( tail) should have 'connectors' to allow body work removal, so it should be easy to disconnect for testing.
Elsewhere in forum is a pdf manual, within is a cct diagram, I have a hard copy and happy to fax/ scan the relevant page to you, then you could check the wires are as they should be.
If so I can do tonight, just off to work. Good Luck - john.
