Hi Linda:
The short answer is yes.
I'll add a couple of extra comments.
- You can push it for ever and it won't start if it does not have fuel or spark. So, I;ll ask, Why do you want to push start it? If the battery is dead, or it won't hold a charge, that sounds like an appropriate fix.
- Push starting a bike can be dangerous. You have to consider that when the motor starts, the bike will want to accelerate, and probably rapidly. Know where you're planning on going if it starts.
- Technique.... It's easier to push a bike that's in neutral than when in gear with the clutch dragging, so the safe and easiest way to push start the bike is to have the ignition switch on, choke set where you think it should be, transmission in neutral, have a rider sit on the bike, and get it rolling downhill. The rider will then pull the clutch lever, put it into second gear, and let the clutch out at the same time as they drop their weight onto the seat. Tricky for a novice, but the weight drop helps to keep the back tire from sliding.
Think Safety!! If you're a novice rider, I would not recommend that you try this.

Bike will not start, clicking noise, lights and indicators working ok - done this twice in a week but started ok, but now won;t start at all

If there is a clicking sound it is most likely the battery that is too weak to pull in the solenoid and hold it there while the starter drains the current. I think you need to either charge or replace the battery.

1979 CX500. When you push the start button why does light dim

The starter button when pushed in half way turns the power off to the lights so more electricity can be used for powering the ignition and starter at the same time. If you press lightly you can turn off the lights with out engaging the starter. Pressing all the way down engages the starter. The button is a two position switch. Carefully take it apart , clean it and put it back together and you may fix the problem.I have three old Honda motorcycles that all have right hand switch assemblies wired to them from other bikes (Because the original was no longer available) You should be able to rewire any Honda two cable switch too work on your bike.

My silverwing won't start or even turnover

Found out that the brake had to be depressed all the way, and not just until you hear the "click". Squeeze the brake hard, and it will start every time. It's a safety feature that Honda has to ensure that the scooter is in control once it's started.
