    It sounds like you have the Run/stop/turn module on your bike that makes the signals act like brake lights. You didn't say if your turn signals work properly. If your read lens are red, it's a good indication that you have the module. Stock rear lens are yellow.

    Is your check engine light on also?
    What is the last thing you did to your bike?
    Is the rear re wired with a turn signal module?

    I got the module from Harley so my rear turn signals would do this. It also came with red lens to replace the amber.

    Trace out the rear harness and remove gelatin filled box under seat and you may find the rear lights will work properly...
