The starter switch is more than likely what you need to clean. In a pinch I have sprayed some WD40 through the opening to get mine to not stick. I only did this as an on the road repair until I could get home, dissasemble and clean the switch and put some dielectric grease in it.

Pull Outwards on the switch, and verify that your headlight comes on. If it does, then the switch is dirty, and causing itself to stick in the Inwards/On postion.

Note that all Honda's turn off the headlight when the starter switch is depressed.

I agree when it happened to me it was just a dirty switch. If you take it out to clean only dissamble it inside one of those 1 gallon freezer bags. There are springs inside and although most of the time they don't move the bag will catch them if they do.
