Horn not working.

Has anyone experienced problems with their horn not working. Went out for a ride yesterday, pulled up the drive and tried to beep the horn to get my wife to open the garage. Horn not bloody working !!!
I had a quick look to check the connections were good - which they were. Not tested it electrically yet.
Anyone had any issues ?

My immediate thought was fuse, but on looking at my download of the manual, there's no fuse indicated for the horn...

Given how lame the horn sounds on the Bobber it not working isn’t such a bad thing

You know it doesnt work because it was to call the wife.
They have special powers and she knew it was going to happen so put out a signal to stop it.

Bet if you try it today for regular use it will be fine.
