Question about 1984 Honda VF 1100 C
There is a new battery and new starter it will start if it is jump started and runs fine same with all the lights. but when i try to start it on its own just bye pressing the button, it will dim the lights and thats about it no sounds no nothing.?
Your starter button has a short or bad (dirty) connection. try using a multi-meter an test the ohms. first the test the amount of voltage crossing the switch.

Hi it sounds like the starter solinoid or starter relay is not working or there could be a loose wire or the starter motor is faulty

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

I had the same problem with my 636. It turned out to be just a cable problem. Try to see if all the electric cables work correctly and connected.

I had the same problem with my 07 cbr but i found out that it wasn't the starter relay, the battery was just dead and i tried to recharge it but it was still dead, so it needed replaced with a new one. once this was done the bike started fine and the buzzing had stopped, so you should give that a go!
