If you have a battery that is getting a bit long in the tooth,this will happen,the horn believe it or not is the highest current drain device on your bike,the battery will only be getting charged up enough to operate the horn when you are riding,if the battery is a good one and not very old,you may find that the charging system is getting tired,but i would go with first option

After i leave it on sitting it overheating and leaks from under the heat, but when i ride it over 40 mph it cools


They all do.When you pull up,let it idle for a few seconds and then shut it down.They need the air over the radiator to cool properly.The main thing is to not let them idle for long periods .Hope this helps
