No Horn

My horn quit working, air horn and stock horn are wired to activate together. I checked the fuses, air hoses from compressor and all are good. Relays are good I think as the other items powered by the relays work OK. I am thinking the Horn button. Is there somewhere in the wiring harness that I can isolate the horn button to do check with an ohm meter to see if the horn button is making contact?

I doubt that water is the problem but I've been wrong before.

There is a Green "6-pin" connector located behind the left fairing marker light.

Temporarily connect a jumper wire between the "white/green" and "light green" wires.

If the horn works, you have a horn switch issue.

Thanks for the reply on the jumper for the wires, it is too late to start now but will give it a go tomorrow afternoon.
