Hello,
I have recently installed a new starter relay in my 2001 sv 650s with 9400 miles. Prior to that, I noticed the dash lights and headlights would dim when I applied the brakes. I got on it one evening and I noticed the headlights went off as I started it, and the starter kept turning even after I shut it off. So I replaced the relay. Once finished with that as I reinstall the battery, the starter began to turn even the the key was in the off posistion. Any clues to my problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah b attery was full charge, would a low battery cause the starter to engage even though the key was in the off position?

No. Are you sure you connected the battery pos cable and starter motor cable on the correct terminals on the new starter relay? If you reversed the cables, the starter motor would energize once the battery was installed bypassing the relay circuit.
