Have you done any mods where you removed or loostened up the left handgrip/clutch assembly? If not reassembled correctly, there is a switch (activated by the clutch lever) which will be improperly adjusted and the security light will stay on....been there

Sounds like something is grounding out.

Mine started doing this after removing front signals...have rear LED signals. Same thing hit left turn and the red security light comes on.

Check your bulb on the left front signal

well when the weather clears up i will check both the front and rear bulbs to see if one of them went bad if both look good i guss i will start tracing the wires to see if they are grounding out somewhere.

well i went out today and swapped the left and right bulbs both front and rear....the bulbs worked on the right side but not the left still.... so im guessing i have some sort of electrical problem......well time to take it to the dealer and get it covered by warranty i guess:banghead:

Would that cause my left front turn signal stay on only half lit? I’m not good at electrical work.
That's a sign of no ground to the bulb, running the power through both filaments to complete the circuit. take the bulb out and clean the contacts and socket and use lithium grease on the bulb base. should be a 5 min fix.

Tried the lithium grease but it didn’t work. Looks like I’m gonna have to look for a bad ground.
