Question about Motorcycles
Are you sure the fault does not lie in the ignition switch. My Honda vf750 used to have a parking light, which you turned on by turning the key clockwise then taking the key out and not anticlockwise like normal. I'd make sure that it is not actually turning the light on at the ignition switch first.

If you used the choke to start the bike last winter, you probably fouled the plugs. Depending on the age of the plugs, you can either clean and re-gap them or replace them with new, which also have to be checked for gap.
Secondly, if you did not run the bike out of fuel after starting it, chances are you have some build up in the carb jets. New, clean fuel and Techron or Seafoam gas treatment will help if it's not too bad. Follow directions on the can. I personally used Seafoam but Techron is recommended by Honda. Be sure to mix per instructions, which on Seafoam is 1 oz. per gal.
