Question about 2002 Yamaha Road Star
On horn works but when I hook up both horns, neither works. both will work by themselves, but not together. I bypassed the wire between the horns and still the same-thing. both horns won't work when wired together.
Sounds like the combined resistance of both horns is dragging down the current ,I suggest you buy one new horn ,ebay about 3 euros including post ,the do the same thing again you will find that one will work ,hope this helped

if I remember correctly, the brown wire is hot from the key, pink is a ground switch through the grip,,, get out the test light and check the connector first

Yes the horn should sound when connected directly to a power 6volt dc power supply like a battery, the power supply to the horn on a dt250 is the same supply as the brake light and indicator relay, the supply is constant when the ignition is on, the horn button then completes the circuit by earthing the horn out when pressed, simple test on the bike connect live wire to horn, using a length of wire earth out the other pole on the horn to a clean part of the frame, and the horn should sound

Hi tcjones65 !
Did you find any solution? I have the same problem on my XV1600. I've changed the speedometer assembly, but it still the same, fuel gauge and speedometer doesn't work...
