Temperature light is supposed to come on when the start button is pushed... fix the button and measure continuity from the button back to the starter solenoid - blue/black stripe wire. I'm guessing, as Willy has, that the previous owner disconnected the blue/black wire at or going to the relay, and the switch is on full time, keeping the temp light on.
Reverse light - check to see whether the reverse wire (green/white stripe) has been grounded. Normally it connects to the reverse switch (just below the output sprocket). Many ground it (disconnected from the switch or not) to eliminate a poor connection at the switch, which causes an annoying reverse RPM limiter to come on when NOT in reverse. Grounding this wire also disables the reverse light.
