919 Broken horn

Hi there,

Horn on my 919 recently stopped working. Im not very mechanically inclined so forgive the ignorance, but this is the horn right (lower right hand side of the bike)? Obvious culprit is that the wire has split from the terminal. Any suggestions as to how I can fix it?

Presumably if I bought a new horn it still wouldn't work because there no power going to the terminal? I don't have a soldering iron but is it worth buying one to see if I can just solder it to patch the connection?

Thanks in advance for any help

Go to an auto parts store and get some crimp style terminal connectors. You can get an assortment pack that also comes with the crimpers. Strip the wire insulation back a small bit, insert into connector, and crimp it. Or buy the solder type (better) and solder a new one on.

Awesome, thanks for the help! I'll do that. Just to make sure I understand correctly I'm crimping the wire running from the bike to a new terminal, and just getting rid of the old terminal right?

As long as there is still a spot to land the new terminal, yes. It's hard to tell from the pics. If the terminal just came off of the wire just crimp or solder a new one on and be done with the old one.

Hi HondaJim, just wanted to say I finally had a crack at this and it worked perfectly! So thanks for your help. Only issue is that I couldn't figure out a way of transferring over the rubber housing that encases the terminal, so its now exposed. Is that going to be an problem? I was thinking I could try slicing open the housing that I removed from the old terminal and putting it around the new one then sealing it with electrical tape perhaps?

Haven't ever tried this but I've seen it at stores.
