Possibly the right hand swith block, also check the wiring from the RH switch back to the plug , which is often in the headlight.

My car wont start but the headlights work and the alternator and cylinoid is good

Could be the neutral safety switch, a bad connection at the battery, or a problem with the key switch or solenoid.
You might be able to jump it at the starter to see if the starter is ok.

Anything from the switch to the starter relay maybe wrong. You need a DC voltage tester to find out if power flows from the switch to the starter relay. You'll have to find out if power gets to the fuse and relay when the switch is solicited.
By all means be careful while jumping the starter with a screwdriver or whatever. Make sure the relay wire is not connected to the starter.

96 vf750 magna. Turn key, no head light no starter buttton. Will not jump start. New battery and fuses ok. Popping 10amp start/ing fuse when jumping. Has high beam no low.

Replace the starter button. Unfortunately this means replacing the whole right switch assembly. You can activate the starter by jumping the two terminals on the starter solenoid. When jumping a motorcycle from a car battery make sure the car is not running, it can damage the cycles electrical system. You may have burned out the low beam on the headlight bulb. The bulb should be replaceable and is easily removed from the back of the head light glass. The head light bulb can be purchased at most automotive stores.
