2003 VTX 1300 retro turn on key no headlight and nothing from the start button @
Hi, Gunner11288 before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit 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. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. 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.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.

SOURCE: Headlights go dim when try
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.

Sounds like a fuse let go!
Get an ohm meter and check your fuses. They should read 0 ohms (or whatever the meter reads when the leads are touched together)
Remember to pull the fuses first before testing them.
I'd check all the fuses while you're there.
If that doesn't show anything wrong, then check the ignition switch itself. Turn it on and off and wiggle it a bit. If the headlight flickers, there's something wrong in the switch, and you'll probably need to pull and clean or possibly replace it.
