Question about 1984 Honda vt 500 ft ascot
SOURCE: 1998 valkrie wont turn over
Your battery is most likely the cause. The tail light and dash light do not draw much juice from the battery. However the headlight and starter are a different story. Are you absolutely sure you turned everything off before you took your break? If you are and you don't ride your bike a lot you should get a trickle charger for it. Use it when not riding. It will prevent you battery from completely losing it's charge thus protecting the battery.
If you do ride often then you should have the battery tested. You may need a new one. Remember that once a battery has been drained too low, permanent damage can occur.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Was the main 30 amp fuse checked/replaced? The main fuse would on the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
