Question about 2005 Honda V-Twin Magna

2005 honda magna won't start

My Fathers bike won't start. He seems to think it is from a car bumping him at a red light. It is doing the same thing it did when he laid it down, seems to think it may be the bendix gear, any info would be great.

    Got it figured out, sorry about the lack of info on it. Funny enough, it was just the clutch cable. haha. Had a buddy ride over and check it out and started jiggling wires first off and that wire just fell off. So problem solved. Thanks for the info.

    With only the information you gave, I would say it is not the bendix gear.  Does the engine crank?  Does the engine try to start? Just taking a guess here since you didn't give a lot of information.  Some bikes have a "tilt switch".  It is designed to turn the bike off when laid down.  I would guess that switch is bad.  Please give more information if this doesn't help.

Hi, Paul some bikes can handle moisture better than others depending on age and 99% of the ones that don't start after getting wet just need a little time to dry out then they are good to go. WD40 works wonders when sprayed in critical electronic areas, ie. coils, spark plugs, safety switches etc.

85 magna neutral light wont come on when bike in neutral, or start. plenty of power in battery.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. If the neutral light stays on while the bike is in gear the wire from the light to the neutral switch is grounded.

I have a 1998 honda magna motorcycle its gettn fire and gas but won't start

First thing you want to do is check your spark plug gap. Improperly gapped plugs can cause a non-start. If all is good there, check the compression. The fuel-air mixture needs proper compression to ignite.
