Stebel Horn BLOWS Constantly
So today I'm driving home 30 mph on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood and as luck would have it, I see the CHP with somebody pulled over in the quiet neighborhood getting a ticket. As soon as a pull alongside them, my Stebel horn, for no apparent reason goes off all on its own. I'm thinking REALLY - right next to the CHP?????? I pull over right next to him. It's loud of course. I'm thinking mine is the next ticket, perhaps a fixit ticket. I shut the motor off, pull the key. The horn is still blowing. I'm drawing all sorts of attention to myself. I had installed this horn myself. The only thing I know to do is to pull the hot wire off the horn. That stops it. Now the CHP guy is coming for me. He's done with his ticket. I just started laughing at myself saying I'm driving along and it picks the worst place in the world to go off, next to him. And then of course I laugh some more by saying and as luck would have it, I don't have a little chirpy horn, I have a you can really HEAR this HORN horn. He now is laughing and tells me I must be the worst motorcycle thief he's ever encountered. Now I'm thinking I did not steal the bike, but realize he is joking. So we have a laugh. Embarrassing moment over. I'm less than a mile from my house. I ride home with the hot wire dangling loose. No horn. I took apart my switch on the handlebar. All looks to be in order. DOES anybody know what would make the horn stick in the BLOWING position????? I would think were it the fuse or the relay the thing would just not work at all. Thoughts and ideas appreciated. In the meantime I have an email to Stebel Tech Support. I'm thinking I will get a quicker, and quite likely, better response from some of you. Perhaps a laugh at my bad timing as well.
