Kick Stand switch on a 1983 VT750?

Its a new bike for me the 1983 VT750, so I have no owners manual and the bike will not start. Saw somewhere on this site about some kick stands have to be up, does the 1982 VT750 have a switch on the kick stand.
Also is there a owners manual on line for download for the 1983 VT750c?
Thanks

Check the stickys at the top of the Tech discussions page. I saw an 83 VT750 C in there I think

No kick stand switch for the 1983. Here is a link to the manuals. Study it to know your bike. Helpful when questions arise.

Does it turn over but not fire? Or doesn't crank at all?

thanks okay I looked all under and on the side and came to the conclusion that it had no switch.
I have the service manual (downloaded), I was looking for the owners manual that came with the bike when new.
Still waiting to find a battery locally as per my other post. Thanks

I bought a owners manual for mine online and it give the basics of how to run the bike, capacities, etc. But all the same information is in that Honda factory service manual.
