Someone dropped my motorcycle while it was parked in the street Apparently they wanted to take a picture on it and managed to drop it Since then I had a variety of problems some which are probably not...

Probably a stuck needle valve Float. Your engine is flooding on one side bogging it down. Depending on your carbs it could be a bent constant velocity rod/pin (same thing really). The racket may be coming from the bad carb trying to stabilize with a bent rod.

Xjr1300 1999 horn will only make a low pitch noise when button is used

check the connector to the horn. Ensure no corrosion...if it looks can this...
Yamaha horns usually have 2 wires...a hot wire (pink) to the horn and a black wire returing to the the horn button...the button grounds the circuit to sound the horn.

You can also jumper the horn black directly to ground and turn on the key...if horn is loud have poor connection in your horn button wiring or ground.

If it makes no difference jumpering and horn is not wet inside....probably the horn is bad. Some have an adjustment nut in the center that can be adjusted to alter tone somewhat....worth trying before tossing horn.

The compressor is making noises and it raises up slow. After it has raised compressor shuts off until the car is unlevel again. What can i do to stop the noise?

It sounds like the compressor is getting to the point of being worn out. that is why it is making noise and raising slowly.

Horn on 1998 mystique does not work - makes a clicking noise from under the hood when horn button is pushed -

If you are getting a clicking noise when you push the button, that means that the switch in your steering wheel is getting 12 volts to the relay. that is a good thing as the switch in the steering wheel is the bear to work on in the system. Either the horn itself has failed, or the relay is popping but the contacts have failed and the 12 volts is not getting to the horn. Horns are cheap used at junkyards and not really very expensive at a parts store. The horn is most likely near the radiator, behind the front grille. Looks like a horn, circular horn shape with an opening. You may have to get the grille off to get at the horn or maybe you can get at it from underneath. Make a jumper cable out of an old extension cord, just strip and bare the ends of the wire. Have someone hold on set of bared ends to the battery terminals while you hold the other ends to the connectors on the horn which you can see after you pull the plug off. If the horn honks, then it is good and you need to get a new relay. If the horn does not honk then you need a new horn. Usually just one bolt takes it off. You might have a 3 or 2 wire unit so make sure you get the proper replacement. I always get one out of a junkyard You know it is an exact fit if it came out of a similar car so no drilling or fabrication required.

Horn Relay replaced multiple times in a few months

Actually you use the horn relay a lot! At least 3 times every time you get lock/unlock your car (6 toots, 2 toots for lock and 1 for unlock right?) ... You just said: "as i clicked my car to lock. It got weaker and weaker until it stopped working" Buy a different brand relay (preferably one not made in China, pay more) and don't expect they WILL last a long time the horns take a lot of power and they have a very dirty feedback to the relay un-like lights. You can dis-able the toots by reading your owners manual.
