SOURCE: no power
I guess you have to check the wiring starting from the battery to the fuse box right to the ignition switch , sometimes wires snap at around the steering column and due to the age of yr bike porbabley some wires may have snapped around there at the lower triple tree.
Hope this helps.

The starter button when pushed in half way turns the power off to the lights so more electricity can be used for powering the ignition and starter at the same time. If you press lightly you can turn off the lights with out engaging the starter. Pressing all the way down engages the starter. The button is a two position switch. Carefully take it apart , clean it and put it back together and you may fix the problem.I have three old Honda motorcycles that all have right hand switch assemblies wired to them from other bikes (Because the original was no longer available) You should be able to rewire any Honda two cable switch too work on your bike.

under the carbs there is a little black screw turn this by hand anti clockwise until 1-1500 revs if this doesnt work the choke may not be going all the way off or pilot screws under float bowls in recess been adjusted too far screw gently all the way in DO NOT over tighten then unscrew approx 1.5 turns out on both carbs if your experiencing flooding from carbs the bowls need to be removed and the pilot jet attached to the float needs replacing hope this helps steve
