Horn Button


Recommended Posts

Just got my hands on a 2nd hand 2011 VTX and the horn button is disconnected. I crawled up under the steering wheel and touched the two horn wires to the button and the horn went off. My guess is that it’s disconnected because it never turns off when wired up. 

i’ve searched high and low for a replacement button but having a hard time figuring out what to order. 

anyone have a suggestion?

Just remove it and measure the mounting diameter.  Then look on Amazon or eBay for that diameter boat horn button momentary switch.

Lots of choices come up when I search for "waterproof momentary switch."  DigiKey or Mouser may have good choices as well.

The stock ignition and horn switches aren't even waterproof.

Hence the need to replace it?  Not a big deal to "upgrade" I would think.

Besides, that is just a search term.  I'm sure that most of what I saw is not waterproof anyway.
