Hi all just watched a video on using one of these adjusters anyone here use one if so what are they like and is it a good investment ,i have seen them on amazon for between 71 and 80 au dollars they seem to be a good peice of kit made in the U.S i believe so maybe the american riders can shed more light on them .

Also check to see if the two electrical contacts have corrosion on them and that the wires are fitting snug mine were loose probably when they changed the bars and i had problems with my rear brake light .I sprayed some wd 40 in the bar mount where everything is as well .

Just read the review on the latest from harley davidson pan america  a cool 32,000 au  and more for laced wheels ,admitedly the africa twin dct is nudging around the mark but for an untested model you would want to be either doing a lot of off road touring or have a big wallet ,nice promo video but honda has a reputation for the africa twin. Time will tell if it is a winner or not .

When i checked power in to the relay from the battery was good even going through a fuse ,power out was nothing so what i gathered was the  switch was not working properly in the relay ,once the relay was squeezed it loosened the switch and it worked then i had power to the relay when horn button was pressed it activated the switch which now opened and allowed power to both horns . The new horn wiring ties in with the original through connectors to make it easier to install using the original horn button and wiring .

 Hi all well being the op i should have a mention in this thread , whilst riding the other day i had a need to give some clown a blast but as i pressed the button nothing happened hmmm . This is not good so i tried it a few more times and it seemed to come right ,anyway leaving work the other night i tried to use the horn again and nothing so further investigation was required .

So i strip away covers and check all connections remembering i had to slightly adapt the loom to fit both horns to the bike ,anyway all connections good next was the handlebar switch check that current is going through all good what could it be ? Aghh i wonder if the relay is faulty so check for continuity all good put the relay back on nothing .

Relay switch must be stuffed so order a new one then go out and play around with it a bit more and whilst squeezing the plastic cover BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP it suddenly starts to work again . So my theory is that the plastic has got warm and stuck to the switch just enough to make it not work ,but i am not sure if this is it or not , i probably could have bought a relay tester but for a relay worth $6.50 i cant see the worth .
All seems to be working ok now but i will keep an eye on it no use getting loud horns if the bloody things dont work .
