Did you check the relay? They are generally located under the Rider's seat. You might have overloaded the relay and caused your lights to stop working

My 1984 honda goldwing aspencade headlight and instrument pannel stopped working

Honda Goldwings starter buttons have 2 sets of set for the lights, one set for the starter circuit...the idea being to shut off lights to conserve power while cranking the starter. The button can stick and not fully release so starter stops but lights don't return.
With key off spray a little WD40 around button then work the button in and out, letting it snap out a few times....then retry key and see if headlight is back.

Headlights go dim when try to start,but nothing happen the switch lights come on but dont start. 1800 vtx motorcycle 2003

The headlight is supposed to turn off when you push the starter button. If you push the starter button and the solenoid clicks, the button is good. If there is no power going to the solenoid you can try disassembling and cleaning the button. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , unless the manufacturer sells replacement parts so you can repair the starter. most manufacturers only sell replacement starter brushes.

No power to headlight or starter every thing else is working

You need to replace your starter button/right switch assembly. The starter button is a two position switch that first turns off the headlight and then activates the starter solenoid.

Start button is stuck

The start button is a two position switch. Push in half way and the lights turn off so more power goes to the starter. Push all the way and the solenoid clicks engaging the starter. Some times you can carefully take apart , clean , and reassemble your switch(may just be a loose screw. Worst case scenario go to the Honda dealer or local salvage and get a switch assembly and replace the non working one.

I have no working headlights and my bike wont start with the push button but will start and run with a push i checked all fuses and connections i could find all are good any suggestions thank you

Headlights and, starter motors require more amps (power) than the blinkers and, taillights
so: jump your battery before you tear into the wiring
If it still doesn't start or, light up
I'll help you troubleshoot the wiring
