Your starting and running issue maybe caused by bad gas and dirty gunked up carbs. Gas can begin to breakdown and varnish the inside of the carbs if allowed to sit for long periods of not running or fuel stabilization.

You may need to manually remove the carbs at this point to clean them. Cleaner/stabilizers such as Seafoam and Star Tron (recommended) will help clean the carbs and stabilize gas. Usage is easy with instructions on each bottle. You can use either one to try and see if they help prior to breaking down the carbs. You should also look at charging the battery, changing the plugs, engine oil, oil and air filter.

Also the headlight only comes on when the bike is running. The only lights that turn on with the bike not running will be the dash lights and turn signals. If the lights do not turn on or the motor turns over, you may have a main fuse or starter relay problem.

Have a look @ the Trouble Shooting Guide to help with isolating any other starting or running issues.

when you say it won't start do you mean it spins over but wont run or it won't even spin over?

although i don't recommend jumping a bike with a car, just turn the car off before hooking up/jumping the bike over. big fat jumper cables can make contact with things they shouldn't so be careful. i see it all the time with jet skis, the most expensive part goes out....four wheelers, bikes....as well. when we have a dead unit with a strong battery come in the first thing i ask is if the customer has jumped the unit off with a running vehicle....doesn't happen all the time but at least 50% of the time so be careful.
