Question about 2004 Honda VTX 1800
I can turn the key switch on with the cycle in nuetral flip the red start button on and the head light will not come on, the oil lite stays on even though its full of oil, the bike will not start.
If you have the kick stand down it will not start, Try to start it with the kick stand all the way up. Mine has a safety switch on the kick stand

Check the starter switch, some break inside and only part of the connection is lost. it's like an ignition on a car that has half the contacts touching

Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

Sounds like you have a ground fault. I once had a car with a faulty ground wire on the headlight, when I put high beam on the speedo would jump to 170km/h and the indicators would glow dimly. Sure sounds like a similar ground fault to me, check all the ground straps, from the headlight or anywhere else you can think of.
