    Just a quick post to say for a change, something was actually easier than expected. Thought I had a fault on the horn of my 2018 KLZB .   Haynes manual says having checked the fuse first, proceed to strip off the front fairing.  What? 😱 Having spent best part of a day disassembling and reassembling the front fairing before (unrelated) I thought I'd just sneak a peak from underneath first.To my surprise, access to the horn,  bracket and electrical connections was easy, even with my grinch hands and sausage fingers. There's plenty of access room. Saved a 30 mins job turning into an all day job so worth sharing I thought.👍👍

    Thanks for the tip.  So what was the problem with your horn?

    Cheers Tallyrex. The horn seemed to just sound a little weak once in a while but normally OK. Just thought I'd check for anything obvious. I did notice one of the connectors was a little looser than the other and both, perhaps slightly tarnished but not actually corroded. Anyway, just scuffed them up lightly and tightened the connectors slightly. Worked fine afterwards so I'll just keep my eye on it. 👍
