Horn switch problem

The handlebar switch clusters on these bikes are really rubbish. Having just had a problem with the kill switch on the right switch cluster I've now run into a problem with the horn button on the left. When the horn stopped working I assumed it would be the horn unit or connectors but these were fine. No voltage was detectable at the contacts when the horn button was pressed so I took the switch cluster apart, fiddled with it a bit and gave it a good clean with electrical contact cleaner. Now the horn works again although I suspect I am going to end up having to replace this group of switches at some point...
Very annoying.

Re: Horn switch problem

Your dealer should replace both switch clusters foc if they are playing up.
