If you are hearing a click and the battery and cdi box are good, than it is most likely you solenoid. Try tapping on the solenoid while try to start it. You can also try to run battery cables straight to solenoid to make sure it is not the starter swtich. You can also use a screwdriver and jump it across solenoid terminals and see if it turns over that way.

Double check all cables are clean and in perfect metal to metal contact.

Push starter button, headlight dims, no starter motor, etc.

Yes, LED turn signal lights require a flasher rated for LED's. They are available in auto parts stores.
As far as the now start goes, double check all wiring, making sure all the positives and all the negatives are correct. Check the ground wire from the battery. Make sure the connections are tight.

1996 Honda VF 750 C Magna will not turn over

Hi, Matt before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

1991 Honda Night Hawk 750.., battery fine but the fuse box clicks when I push the start button, nothing else happens.

There are no moving parts in your fuse box. The clicking sound is the contact bar closing in your starter solenoid.Follow your positive battery cable to your starter solenoid. If your push your starter button and you hear a click in the starter solenoid , then your starter button is good. If you take a piece of wire, a screw driver, or simply touch the the two power cables on the the starter solenoid together you will be putting power directly to your starter. If you jump the solenoid and the starter works you need to replace the starter solenoid. If with direct power to the starter, you tap the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you will need to replace the starter assembly the manufacturers do not sell replacement parts for there starters (only the brushes).

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.
