Horn Doesn't Work

I just replaced my servo and my horn does not work. I'm sure they don't have anything to do with each other, but I was test riding it yesterday due to the servo replacement and that's when I discovered the problem. I did ride it in the rain a lot and then it sat a month. Does the horn have its own fuse? Anyone else have this problem?

Pull the two connectors off the horn, stick a voltmeter between them, and see if there is voltage between the connectors when you press the horn button with the key switched on.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

I'll have to pick up a voltmeter. I also forgot to mention that the horn works every once in a while. While on the ride yesterday, I first noticed it didn't work. Then it worked and went out intermittently.

doesn't have to be a voltmeter. you can take one of the signal bulb and make a simple tester, connect one wire to positive and one in negative of the horn wires.

There is indeed a (10A--I think) fuse for the horn, but if it is intermittent then it is more likely a loose connector or a bum horn.

That was one of the first items I replaced since I commute on mine every day. The 130db air horn always gets their attention.
