Different issue: Couple days ago, my horn gave it's last beep....worked normal, then dying sound, then nothing....
Before I check for 12V there and buy a replacement, I gotta ask if this happened to anyone else, horn just dying out of the blue @ 18,000 miles?
Yeah, they don't last long. Especially if you ride in the rain and freezing weather will get the wet ones quick. Mine quit around 8K, I replaced it at 12K or so...
Needed it for the DOT inspection. I just used a regular one from the local auto parts store. High tone was my choice, about $9 to $20 depending on the model. I think the cheap ones work best and draw less power. TPI probably has one for motorcycles, they had a chrome one last time I looked.
My fiam one has lasted much better than the stocker.
