Re: Tomos horn

Have your horn changed out by your dealer. The wire inside has disconnected. It's a common fix. It can also be performed by you. Take the horn off and drill the rivets out to get it apart. You will see the wire has been disconnected. Just re solder the wire and it is fixed. Use small screws to put it back again. Or simply take to your dealer.

Or just leave it... What good is that horn anyway? It sounds like a duck coming at you to me at least.

Re: Tomos horn

I have owned 3 Tomos', and the horn is completely worthless when it does work. As was mentioned, all it will do is possibly attract ducks. I don't know if it is the horn, or simply not enough power, or both. Maybe I'll connect one to a 12 volt car battery and see what happens. One thing I do know, is that the Tomos lighting coil is extremely weak, the turn signals quit working at idle, and the headlight gets so dim you can barely see it. The mag could be made to put out a lot more power, but that would zap some of the power from the engine, which already doesn't have enough. Peace, Jerry.

yes mine has stopped working to, not sure why but this seems to be common. I dont care about the horn anyhow so it doenst bother me.

Re: Tomos horn

I am going to check the horn with 12 volts at a car battery also check voltage on the bike. I might still buy a good horn the second time out I used the horn. It,'s good for telling people I have the right of way.Sometimes drivers get stupid or just don't see me when backing up.. I think a horn is very important. thanks guys............

Yep.. Les than a year old, and mine is dead also.

Re: Tomos horn

moped horns are useless.

Re: Tomos horn

weak horns and lights at idle is common with every stator-driven electrical system out there. at low rpm, the motor is not producing enough power to properly operate the signals/lights/horn at their full potential.

take it to your dealer if you think it's faulty. something tells me unplugging an electrical piece from your moped and plugging it into a car battery may void your warranty.
