Hi all
I have bought a pair of air horns to replace the rather wet stock horn. The problem that I have is that I have seen on YouTube that the positive from the battery goes via the switch to terminal 86 on the relay. I have sound which wire that connected to the stock horn, when the button is pressed becomes live. Not problem I thought, connected up inc compressor for horns, but where oh where does the other wire from the horn go? A simple ohms check shows it a neg/ground connection so I thought simple, connect that to pin 85 but it don't work!! few fuses later on, I'm stumped!!
I attach a pic of the wiring diagram I found on line....IMG_6708 (1).PNG

The guy on the video stated that he made a mistake by the switch (should not have the thin line there).....what am I doing wrong?? I have tested the compressor and that works fine so im stumped!

Cheers John, I'll keep that in the pocket for if/when I get a set of spots for the bike!
I think that I have cracked it (or my father in laws son has if im being honest!) and will try it tomorrow.
Thanks again for the help you have given me (y)

All working as they should and boy are they loud!! whilst on the subject, for a mini-second, one horn seems to be slower than the other before it joins in the chorus of barps!! is this normal and it doesn't bother me one bit but just an observation!
