SOURCE: starting problems
I would start by checking your starter switch, ignition, the starter relay and then the kickstand saftey switch. There is a few things that happen when you start the bike. One, you depress the starter switch, the headlight shuts off, the starter relay closes and the bike starts. I'm not sure how or what creates this but I bet there is a relay somewhere along the line that cuts power to your headlight when you start the bike and its faulty and is causing both of the problems. It may stuck somewhere in the middle instead of open or closed. I would also suggest jumping your starter relay to see if it starts. If it doesnt, then it must in your ignition switch. Find your starter relay, there should be one red wire leading to it, another leading away. Very important... make sure your bike is in neutral.. the starter will fire not matter what. Take flat headed screw driver and connect the two post. It should fire right up. If it does, the lights should come on. It may be just enough to get that stuck relay unstuck.

i had this problem before,i suggest first replacing starter valve w/ a chinese equivelent part(cheaper than honda but the same),can also replace w/ manual enrichener plunger, but it is inconveinent to access, or what i did was seal off plunger hole and squirted gas through fuel line and a primer bulb, teeing off from main fuel line run spigot fitting into plunger bore and jb weld to seal.now mount primer bulb in convienent location.definitely an unauthorized repair and a little tedious to fabricate ,but works like a charm, as those starter valves are notorious for not working correctly.

if teh lights get brighter and the signals blink faster as you rev up the engine. then I would say you need to replace the battery

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.

on the ignition switch follow the cable all the way down to where there is a removable connector. pull it off from the other cable and test the switch side of the connector. your will be looking for the solid red wire and the solid black or brown wire. On some bikes there are 2 or 3 brown wires (should have 2 browns and 1 black per the honda manual, but aftermarket wiring harnesses for the ignition switch don't always follow the honda factory color codes). with a multimeter set for diode/continuity (i like to have audible beep on mine) put the test leads on the solid red wire and the solid black wire, when you switch from off to on you should complete the circuit and the continuity will be there. if not then check to make sure the wiring harness is fully in contact with the switch and reseat if possible. retest and if same problem exists with no continuity then the switch is bad. I have found that old bike barn is the cheapest for the switch. (i have an 82 honda magna v45 vf750c) I have been through the same headache twice now with the iginition switch and it seams to just happen with no warning or precursors).
