Check the battery. Do each of the cells have water covering the top of the plates? Add water if needed then put on a 1amp or 2amp charger for about 3 hours. If the battery will not hold the charge then it is likely that the battery has an internal short and is draining itself. A battery with a short must be replaced.

Please rate this answer. Thanks blarnieo!

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.

1983 Honda Nighthawk 650 stopped starting

Sounds like the starter solenoid went bad. Turn the key on, Make sure it in N. Take a screwdriver and jump the terminals on the solenoid and see if it turns the starter over and starts the bike. If it does then the solenoid needs replaced.
