Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Bulbs are burnt out.
2. Light circuit fuse was blown.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Faulty, corroded or cut wire connector, pins, sockets etc. in the running light circuit.
5. Loose, broken or corroded common ground.

SOURCE: my honda v65 magna runs hot in stop and go traffic

V65s are notorious for running hot in stop and go traffic as it has a liquid coolant system and no cooling fins on the heads or cylinders. An easy fix is to wire in a switch to turn on your electric radiator cooling fan and switch the fan on and leave it on when you are riding in town.

Pull the seat and the side panels, check all the wiring, plugs and connections for a weak or bad connection. Check the harness for a rub along it's length, any place it touches the frame. Check the fuse box for a bad connection , then check the wiring along the handle bars and under the tank. Look for a loose ground wire at or near the battery. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Hi, Blinddogs12 nice novella you obviously have a wiring issue that requires a professional diagnosis for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

No power to headlight!


Some bikes by design shut off the headlight while cranking the starter to conserve power. I'm not positive on your model, but Goldwings have this feature.
They do this by having 2 sets of contacts behind the starter button...so as you push in, first the headlight contacts open...then as you push further the starter circuit contacts close. Sometimes as these bikes age...the button doesn't fully release, so the starter contacts open, but the headlight contacts don't close.

With key off....spray a little WD-40 around the button and work in and and out several times, letting it snap out, then retry.

My ignition switch is quit and i dont have money to buy another one how can i bypass it and make bike run. is there a place i can download a repair manual free


Assuming the problem electrical. Take the switch assembly off the bike , put the key in and turn to the ON position, push the three tabs on the contact base and remove it. Now the electric base of the switch can be taken out and cleaned or replaced. If the key tumblers are damaged you will need to buy a complete switch assembly.
