There is most probably a short in your guages..

Do they all function?..

With the key removed try using a volt ohm meter..

Attach the black lead to the batt..then go from wire to wire on your guages and see if you are getting any voltage thru them..

I suppose that if your engine kill switch has failed internally it could be shorting out as well..

Remove it from the handle bar(leaving it plugged in of course) and check it for voltage draw..

If you suspect it(or the guages) disconnect them overnight and check batt voltage in the morning..

That is a way in its self to check for drains..just start unplugging things one at a tyme and checking voltage in the morning until you have isolated the drain..

Hope this helps..
