Horn Not Working

Anyone having problems with their not working, since my left switch started giving problems i can seem to get my horn to work, i checked the fuse but it looks ok, might be the connection at the horn itself, any advice will be grateful

I'd wiggle those exposed connectors on the horn. They are always ripe for surface corrosion.

My 2011 stoped working intermitently and then stopped altogether. Warranty item, the left handle bar control.

My horn is not working all of a sudden. When pressing the button on the left handlebar, I hear the relay click under the rear seat. I checked the fuse and the 7.5A fuse is good. Relay is clicking.. sounds like it is good. I measured voltage when checking fuse and proper voltage is being applied. I will go in and check the connections at the horn and check for voltage to the horn before I look at replacing the horn. If I do need to replace the horn, does anyone have recommendations for a louder horn that will fit? I live in S. Florida and a loud horn could just save my life.

Thanks all.

I use the horn to holler at shorties.

Check fuses, connections to horn, and battery terminals. Finally, switch where horn button is needs to be checked. Those switches are known to go bad.

You all writing about checking the switch or the wiring's...my original horn also did not work anymore suddenly and I also checked the switch and the connections and the wiring thousand of times.
Until a fried asked me if I also have already checked the horn membrane. No sooner said than done: the membrane of the horn is full of moist and dirty...
