Thank you very much. After removing the plastics around the handlebars, it was easy to see the connections are down inside the fairing. I did take the switch apart and used some 3000 grit sandpaper on the button, fowelled buy contact spray.
That did not help. I figured an 08 with 51,000 and with the right side starter switch that also just went out, if I have to take to front off to replace the switch , I might as well replace to Walo Bad Boy 519 horn that I've had for 9 years as well. I did try the short and long idea but nothing happen.
The original switch cost $ 109.00 and they gave me a discount for being a senior so that was nice.
Again super glad I don't own a BMW any more.
That stand for BRING ME YOUR WALLET! HAHA
