The two switches you are having problems with are thermetically controlled; they can easily short out which will cause the light to stay on. First what I'd like you to do is disconnect them at the sending unit, if the lights still stay on you have a short somewhere deeper in the wiring. Most likely it will be a grounded wire. If the lights do go off you will then want to use an OHM meter to check continuity at the senders. If you get solid resistance then the sending unit is shorted out, if one remains open then isolate the other. You may have a situation that one switch is causing both to stay lit.
Let me know if this helps you out at all. Tell me if you don't have the resources to co the diagnostics as described and I'll be happy to give you a work around. We will just have to be a little creative.
Either way let me know and I'll be happy to help you resolve the issue. I'm inclined to thing your problem is a short not a heat related issue since both sending units are both indicating a problem.

are you turning the choke off after its warmed up? most will not run with the choke on and warmed up.
also try running it with the gas cap open to see if you have a vent issue in your tank. if air can't get in, then gas can't flow.
if not a choke or vent issue, then try this. turn the petcock off and then disconnect the fuel lines one at a time going into the carb. start with carb fuel line #1 disconnected (and the rest connected) and in a coffee can, turn petcock on and ignition too. fuel pump should come on momentarily and inject some fuel. see how the quantity looks. reconnect the line to carb #1 and repeat for carbs #2 - #4. your looking for a decrease in fuel to a couple of cylinders.
if all looks fine, i would then focus on the carb floats & jets. have the carbs been off for a good cleaning lately? modern fuel breaks down quickly and could cause a gumming condition in the carbs. spraying the sea foam or carb cleaner into the carbs is bypassing the everything in the carb bowl (but it means the spark plugs are ok) so there could be an obstruction. i would look there first.
if uncomfortable removing the bank of carbs, you can try a quick fix first. with the petcock closed, open the drain screws of each carb and let the gas drain out. go and buy some yamaha carb cleaner (liquid in a black bottle) at a yamaha motorcycle dealer. mix it in a separate container with gas as recommended. close the drain screws on each carb. pour the mixture into each fuel line feeding the carb and let it sit overnight. DO NOT POUR THIS MIXTURE INTO YOUR TANK. its not a fuel additive, but a cleaner that will not harm orings or gaskets, but it will not ignite with a spark plug. open the drain screws the next morning and let the mixture pour out. reconnect the fuel lines to the carbs and test drive it.
if that didn't work, then removing the carbs for a good cleaning is my next step. good luck.

SOURCE: zzr1100 oil consumption
I remember a training course a few years ago with Suzuki, they said that up to a point, as the more mdern bikes run hotter and or more efficient combustion, they could burn some oil without it actually smoking like a steam train. either you are burning it or it's going in to cooling system via head gasket, which is unlikely as a litre is a fair old lot. suggest you get your compression checked with a tester, and check all of them, look out for differences, maybe just one worn bore.

Have been fighting this problem for 2 weeks .It happened when the bike feel over to the right in the garage. I called Kawasaki and this is what they said .A lot of V-twins get and air lock in the oil system when tipped over. Slide an oil pan under the bike. Then disable the ignition system. spin open the oil filter and crank the engine over until good flow is acheived and slowly spin oil filter shut and oil pressure should come up and all the lights go out. I hope this helps.
