I have a 98 VF2 750C Magna with a similiar problem as stated above. The starter switch is a quad pole switch which runs your accessories with the key on and also starts the bike. With some care take the switch assy. apart and the head lamp assy. Find the wire harness connecting the switch to the head lamp by following it down the trunk of the steering column. Disconnect and clean any corrosion (use baking soda and water with a small brass or steel brush) blow dry with compressed air. Check with multimeter between the contacts on the switch and the associated pins on the plug (easy enough they are color coded). Check each contact between pins and then to ground by touching a solid metal object with one lead of multimeter. All the wires should have continuity to each pin if not you have an open in the wire harness between the switch and headlamp plug. The only wire that should check to ground is the Blue/white wire (ground wire). If any other wires check to ground you have a short to ground replace switch assy and harness (57.00 @ Honda Direct). Out side of these measures you can check between the forward to contacts on the switch and the associated pin in the headlamp while depressing the switch. If you have no continuity as I do then the internals of the switch are bad so replace switch assy. There is a new switch assy. available at Honda direct that replaces the old type found in your bike.
Hope this helps.
The problem is not in your CDI, Solenoid or Battery most likely since you can short the solenoid as seen by the switch you have installed and the bike starts and runs.

SOURCE: change spark plug
Your tool kit has a thin wall spark plug wrench with a grabber to change the plug. If you don't have a tool kit you can buy just the plug wrench at your local Honda dealer. The spark plugs are on top of the head . You may have to remove chrome carburetor covers or your lowers to gain access . Then pull plug caps, check to make sure there is no mud or collected dirt, if so clean out before proceeding. After you blow out junk (if there is any) take a piece of wire and make sure the drain holes are clear. Now remove the old spark plugs and replace with four new NGK DPR8EA-9 gapped to .035 in.
