Horn with no Honk
Posted November 10, 2005 - 10:51 PM
I have replaced it, replaced it again with a 6 volt type, tweaked the sound adjuster settings, cleaned the push button contacts, checked the connections.
The best I can get out of it is a Meak little pulse. Bruuuuu..uu....u..u..uu.
When the lights are on. virtually nothing. I have 12 volts AC no load and 9 Volts AC with lights on. The Head light bulb is 35 watt ( with in Spec).
What else can I look for or do????????
Man, petrol/Gas is getting expensive I need to get this baby on the road.

you need to add a battery to it
its really simple i was in middle of making a howto thanks to help from fellow tt'rs but havnt gotten around to it do yet
try this forum that i started
basiclly to add the battery you
need to ad a ac/dc rectifier
it costs 3 to 5 bucks (american)
and you need a small battery
its a really simple proccess

y that goes to the regulator t off of that and send that (ac) to the rectifier?
and the ground from the regulator goes to ground
and then the opposite corner that i hook to the rectifier i ground and then
the negative goes to negative on battery and the positive goes to positive on battery
part number is #276-1185

Some of these dirtbike electrical systems are designed to conserve weight, so there isn't much extra power for accessories.
