It sounds like you have either a flat battery and there is not enough power to turn the engine, or the engine has hydrolocked with fuel.
Take the plugs out, remove anything that may cause a spark or ignite the fuel and remove the ignition coil low voltage supply.
Spin the engine over bearing in mine petrol will blow out of the piston almost anywhere!!!
Allow the petrol to evaporate and then put the plugs back in and put the wires back on the coil.

The three yellow wires carry AC current from the generator to the rectifier. The rectifier turns this AC current into DC current and sends it back to the battery through the red and the black wires. I am not certain what the purpose of the 7th wire is on the new rectifier except that it may be used for thermal sensing of the rectifier - which would explain why it is mounted tight to the unit.
Of all the components that make up your Honda's charging system, the rectifier is the most likely to fail. The reason is usually excess temperature buildup - which causes the diodes inside it to fail. If you are running extra electrical accessories on your bike, this can cause the rectifier to overheat and die. Same thing if you frequently let the bike sit until the battery goes dead, the rectifier works hard to recharge it each time.
You may be able to extend the life of the unit by avoiding things that put extra strain on it, as described above. Also make sure there's nothing covering the cooling fins on the rectifier - or blocking airflow to it (dirt, that extra pair of gloves stuffed next to it, etc.).
Finally, there's one thing that will kill the rectifier instantly: connecting the battery cables backwards. That'll fry it every time.

This bike is well known for cam chain rattle, but it has an automatic tensioner so there are no adjustments. If the bike runs well just ride it. I have a friend that had his cam chain, tensioner and guides, and in less than a couple years it was making the same sounds. If the bike run rough then it is a possibility the chain has stretched and unless you are confident with timing issues take it to a pro.

The fuel filter is located on the petcock valve that sticks up into the tank. Make sure it is well sealed after repair.

Start with the simple things first. The thermostat is in the thermostat case under the right handlebar, check that the fan works (hot jump it), and check the thermal switch, which is on the left front of the radiator.

The fuel pumps were eliminated on the later models because of this problem. You can discard the fuel pump altogether and gravity feed the carburetors.

The alternator (stator) should pull right off unless the key is still in the shaft. Push the stator back on and feel for a raised portion on the shaft. If you need to you can rotate the shaft by hand to visually inspect.

Here is a link to a quality system that sounds great. Do not forget to rejet the bike as well. I use jet kits from dynojet.

To change your oil you will need 4 quarts of oil, a filter, and a new aluminum drain plug washer. You can reuse the old drain plug washer if it has not been squished out of shape. Your motorcycle comes from Honda usually with 10w-40 mineral base motorcycle oil. You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Car oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Pour in three quarts of oil and add enough from the fourth quart to reach the high mark on the dip stick or inspection window. Make sure the motorcycle is upright or on the center stand when checking the level . You will probably need 3.1 to 3.4 quarts to hit the high mark. Run the motor for a minute or two to fill the oil filter compartment with oil. Now recheck the oil level and top up as needed. If you want to try an inexpensive full synthetic oil that is JASO MA rated 15w-40 Shell Rotella T Synthetic fits the bill at about $22 per gallon.
