My new stebel horn isn't working
While I was replacing the air filter, I thought it'd be a good time to install the stebel horn I've had lying around. Thank you Joe and Grif for your howto at K-bikes. It really helped.
So I've hooked everything up and guess what, no stebel. Stock still works. So I take out the voltmeter and here's what I see. The switched signal from the stock horn comes to the relay, and the relay has 12V from the battery, but when the horn is pressed, no 12V comes out of the relay to the stebel. Either my relay is bad, or I hooked it up wrong.
The relay is the one that comes with the horn. Looking at the diagram that came with it, it seems to me that pin 85 is ground, 87 goes to the positive on the horn, 30 goes to the + of the battery, and 86 is connected to the switched horn line I tapped into on the stock horn. Does that sound right? I'd appreciate any insight on whether my connection is wrong, or the relay is bad.
