KLR650 Horn wont stop
The bike is a 2012 KLR650 with about 24,000 miles
I was riding the other day through a usual heavy storm on the Argentinian Pampas , when my horn started to mysteriously keep going off by itself.
To stop it I would tap the horn button a few times and it kind of stopped it. But later on in the day it kept happening again, until eventually the horn just kept on, it was driving me crazy and freaking out the people on the side of the road, so I pulled over and disconnected the two wires that connect onto horn assembly in the front inside the fairing - to stop the sound.
I think I checked and or/ replaced the fuse as well.
I'm getting the parts from the USA but don't want to get the wrong ones.
I was thinking the problem was either
1) The actual horn mounted brass disk assembly is broken
2) The assembly inside the horn button is faulty, has something jammed in it or the contacts stuck
maybe water influx has triggered one of the faults?
Can anyone suggest what the problem may be? or has had the same problem on another bike?
The bike is in Uruguay and I'm in Colombia so I cant check it, I just need to get the right parts - or method to fix it.
your advice is great fully appreciated ! thanks in advance
