Is the check engine light or other light on? It should be if there's an issue, but check this info out below and hopefully it'll get you going! Usually if the light is on and no power steering is the issue, a simple reset will fix the problem. Instructions are below and I've posted more info below as well.

You can reset the computer by disconnecting the battery cables for a couple hours. Or this procedure below.
Step 1. With the vehicle stopped, put the gearshift lever in "N" (neutral), be sure that the neutral indicator comes on and turn the ignition switch to "off". Step 2. Turn the ignition switch to "on" while pushing the UP and Down shift switches (gearshift switches) simultaneously. The "N" on the gear position indicator starts blinking. Step 3. Within 5 seconds after turning the ignition switch to "ON", push and release the gearshift switches in the order of UP switch, Down switch, and UP switch. (Do not hold onto the switch) The gear position indicator displays "- -" to indicate the system enters the intial setting mode. If more than 5 seconds elapse or the procedures are incorrect, The "N" stops blinking and stays on. Repeat the procedures from step 1 at this time. Step 4. Move the throttle lever to fully closed position, then to fully open position, and then move it to the fully closed position again within 5 seconds after "- -" displays on the gear position indicator. Step 5. When the initial setting procedure is complete, the indication on the gear position indicator changes from "- -" to "N". If the "- -" on the gear position indicator blinks, repeat the procedure from step 1.

I have been inside a number of older Hondas and have always found enough oil in the stator housing (alternator) to need a drain pan but I don't know if it is normal or a sign of a leaky seal.

4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.

19. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
20. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections are loose or connected to the wrong cylinders.

24. Faulty or corroded run/stop switch.

Hi, Luciano the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.
