You sound correct. Try hitting it with a hammer while someone tries to start it.

Further investigation, there is no sound at all not even a click. Still priming but thats it. When I was starting it up earlier that day it was starting a little rough, being from Canada I thought maybe it was cold it was snowing -2 C out. I am not to firmiliar with hondas to know.

The little wire on the starter should be 12 volts when the switch is in the start position.
