1998 Kawasaki ZX6R horn not working

The horn button has been sprayed with WD40 but still is not working and have no mechanical knowledge. Can it be a fuse? if so where are they?

    COOL! I ride a 2000 Kawasaki ZRX 1100. They are dependable and faster than whatever your buddies are riding in most cases.


    Pull the saddle off and look toward the ***-end of the tail-section. There should be a little box with a black cover or such. THis is what the fuse box looks like. Locate it, pop off the cover gently, NOW Check for burnt or broken fuses since you don't use a test light. (I recommend you buy a six or ten dollar test lamp. You will be glad you did! It hooks to the negative battery post, and lights up whenever you touch something that's on the positive side of the circuit. Next try the horn on a known good horn circuit. Usually the horn has positive battery voltage running to it thru one wire, and the other wire runs from the horn to the horn button which provides the ground side of the circuit when the button is pushed. THis completes the circuit, thus electrifying the horn coil and vibrating with a loud honk! This is a good repair to start learning how to fix your machine and to start reading/learning about DC electricity. Get a basic book on 12 Volt DC power, and your friends will all be coming to you for advice! Let me know If you need more help. Have fun riding. TaterTodd

Hi, maybe it is just stuck ( horns work like a solenoid when hited by current they vibrate).
