Question about Honda Motorcycles
If I leave it for more than a day without starting, then there will be a problem starting. It turns over but will not run. If I start every day then no problem. It also runs smoothly when it turns on.
Replace the battery. An old battery will work fine if it gets a daily charge, but when you leave it for a couple of days, the charge will dissipate and while still indicating 12 V it won't have the grunt to turn over and fire the engine at the same time.

Hi, Your problem lies with the starter solenoid, although you maybe using a fully charged battery to jump it, it appears to be sticking or possibly faulty due to trying to start with poor battery.
The starter solenoid is usually located on or near the Battery compartment, it is cylindrical and has two heavy wires attached to it 1 goes to the starter motor the other to the battery. If you are carefull you can by pass the solenoid by touching the heavy wire going to the starter motor with the jumper lead. Make sure the jump battery is connected and both the NEGATIVE leads are well secure. Put the NEGATIVE lead from jump cable direct to a engine mount bolt or engine itself Not the battery.
There you are FixYa'd

Rust in the tank is not good. Put a liquid fuel tank liner in it to seal off the rust for good. Clean the carb and install an in-line fuel filter. Where are you getting gas? You may be putting bad gas in the tank, gas with a bit of water in it.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? And it doesn’t cost anything extra!

Check for dead shorts by making sure all electrical components are in the off position. Remove the + battery lead. Slightly touch the lead to the + terminal on the battery in a sweeping pass by motion. If you see an electrical arch it is possible you have a bare wire or a compressed one shorting out your system. Start eliminating each component one at time to see what is causing the short. If you are a novice electrical engineer then you might think about contacting a real professional before you burn up the whole shebang.

More than likely one of the two ignition coils is bad. It is common for coils with broken internal wires to work fine when cold, but fail when the windings heat up and expand. To prove this, switch the coil outputs and see if the original "bad" cylinders are now "good" when hot. You will still experience the same problem (the original "good" coils will now be "bad" when hot), but you will have isolated the problem.

this time of the yr. spring time a lot of bikes sit all winter and fuel in the carb will age becoming like a vanish that will clog the low speed jet or jets so most likely you need you carb cleaned.
