Your magneto puts out AC current, the horn ya have uses DC
current. Won't ever work.
The horn works really strong on just a 6-volt battery. I know
my headlights work but haven't paid attention as to how
bright or whether they dim when horn button is pressed. If so
what would that mean? Thanks for your help.

Does the horn have an adjusting screw? You should use a 6
volt battery and see how the horn beeps. If it doesn't beep
well, turn the adjusting screw a little in either direction,
and see if it improves.

If it doesn't beep well on a battery, it won't beep well on
the bike. However, sometimes it needs minor re-adjustment
when it's on the bike.


Looking at the wiring diagram, it appears that the magneto
lighting coil runs both the headlight and the horn.

How bright is the headlight? What happens when you have the
headlight on and press the horn button?

I am using a new 6-volt replacement horn for my Super 10 but
can't get a loud sound. I have a magneto and can get a
little beep if the engine is reved up. I have checked the
horn button circuit and it is fine. All of my wiring is also
brand new. My ignition works fine. Does anyone have any
suggestions? Thanks.
