Default Re: custom 2 stroke headlight set up

I suspect the horn is drawing more amps than the size fuse you're using. Horns can be a big power hog. That's why they use relays to power them; so the horn button contacts don't weld closed. You'd need a DC ammeter to check the power draw from the horn. Wire it in series with the horn, jumper the fuse and press the horn button. Take what value the meter reads as the horn sounds then multiply that value times 125%. That will be the required fuse size.
Example: Horn draws 7 amps. Multiplied by 125% = 8.75 amp fuse.
Sent you a PM with some details, darkangle.
