Read through a lot of posts on this, and I think the internals of the horn are either corroded or shot. I disconnected the horn, probed both wires to the horn, hit the button and registered 11.7 or so volts...so I confirmed the switch and ground loop are ok.



I have my endorsement road test coming in a couple of weeks, and part of that is a 'street-legal' bike, one of which whose horn works.



Has anyone ever flooded or dunked the horn in say electronics cleaner? I know they are available for 6 or so bucks...just wondering is all.

It's been tried but most bike dealers have an exact replacement generic horn for about the same price and they're easily twice as loud as the stocker ever was.

I've got one and they look like they were made by the same company that made the originals - physically they look and mount identically.
