Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

If you can hear the starter run, but no motor turning, the starter clutch is going bad. It is what allows the motor to turn over with the starter, and it idles while the bike is running.

Take the starter button off and put a 12 volt tester on one of the 4 leads that are wired into the button. Test each- If you find a hot line, take a small piece of wire and jump the current over to the other parrallel button. I worked on my bike for two weeks before I discovered this problem. Another problem was that the headlight would not come on. The starter would not crank at all. I took a screw driver and raised the brass leads on the switch so they would make contact and put the switch back together, and it worked. Good luck.

Chances are that that problem is not fuse related. It is more likely you have a defective starter button. The starter button does two things. First, it turns off the headlight and , second, it activates the starter solenoid. If
your starter solenoid clicks when you push the starter button, the
starter button is good. If nothing happens when you press the starter button it may be dirty or broken. Try taking the switch apart and cleaning the button contacts.
Next go to the starter solenoid and try jumping the power from one solenoid post to the other. You can use a jumper cable clamp, a screw driver, or touch the two cables together, this sends power directly to the starter. If the starter works now you have a bad solenoid (burnt internal contact points).
If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer or back of a screw driver and the starter works , you need new starter brushes. There are no other parts (other than brushes) available for the starter from Honda. If the bearings are bad or the armature is shorted you will have to replace the starter assembly.
