Ignition switch sound likely.

I remember vaguely that a similar problem was discussed here a while ago, but I can't remember what the cause was. Do a google search and see if you can find the thread, it may be of help.

this may get you started:

AND fill in your profile where you are and add the model/ year of bike you are riding to get better answers.

Sounds like a shorted ignition switch.

Will it stay running forever or just a few seconds ?

On some bikes if the cooling fan is running when the bike is shut down the fan motor can feed energy back into the ignition system to keep the motor running but it will only run for a few seconds.

Do you get the same result if you shut the bike down with the kill switch, will the motor stop, do you get ignition lights up on the dash ?

What if you leave the bike in gear and use the kick stand to shut the bike off is it the same ?
