Bike won't turn off.

I have a 2006 Yamaha Fz6 and it runs great. It was a impounded vehicle at the place I work and had been dropped. We repossessed it and I fixed it up. I had to replace the ignition and battery and it ran great for a few weeks. The other day I was riding it and got to my destination and turned the key off and it killed the bike but left all the lights and accessories on. I took it home and unplugged the ignition thinking it might be bad but when I would connect the battery it would still turn on even with no ignition. I smelled something like a burning wire or something so it probably shorted somewhere. I'm just not sure where to look. Also the negative battery cable has white corrosion stuff on it even though it's brand new. Not sure if that would have anything to do with it. Any ideas on where to start looking would be appreciated.

I figured it out. There was a relay thst had cracked and got water in it. It had melted and shorted out.
