sunstar557 Just to conclude FWIW, my ECU was reflashed by Rexxer, Redline in VA. According to them, this is part of their reflashing which they programmed into my ECU. Like some cars today, headlight remains on after turning off for 1 or 2 minutes, then goes off.

After six months, no issues with this programming.

Glad to see you back with us on the forum! No, definitely not the steering lock + light on (e.g., emergency side road situation); I think that's what you mean.

Whack the case with the backside of a screwdriver if the contact stays closed after power is removed.
Or try replacing it and see if it fixes your problem. Might be a problem with the inductive coil retaining charge.
(This only applies for Biposto/GT. Monopostos don't have a relay 48 controlling the headlight.)

Check the PDF here, Body #8 on the ECU, path circled magenta "5", Relay #48.
That controls master power to the headlight.
Thanks a bunch!!!! Bike is at the shop right now for other matters, may have them do this.

Impulsive_Duc GT1K and Biposto share the same DP ECU... the ECU controls the headlight circuit.... just saying.

Yes, this is the situation. turn to off position with the key, even pull key out (of course my ECU now has immobilizer off), light stays on. I got my ECU reflashed and the GT1K dynoed two weeks ago. I've been riding since then without this quirk. This quirk started today. Just thinking that it has something to do with recent work...but can't think anything logically connected with fuel remapping. Go figure, thought I'd post up since there's rumor that this forum has died out. ha ha

Impulsive_Duc Do you own a GT1000? That's normal.
