    I still think it needs whacking with a #3 phillips handle. Practically everything can benefit from that. I know it works on sticking floats and starter solenoids.

    Sorry for the slow response guys, I've been elk hunting. I think that I have got it fixed. I tore of all the tape in the headlight cowl and all the way back to the battery to make sure there weren't any bad covered up connections. There was a questionable one in the headlight that I fixed but I dont think it was giving me any issues. I ended up banging the horn with a wrench because I didnt have that driver handy. After it still would just buzz I started messing with the screw on the back of the horn and ended up finding a spot where it would work when the button was hit (I had also taken off the blinker/horn/light switch to check connections) So i got it fixed to where I wanted it when I tested it and put it back together. When I got all the wires taped up and the switched mounted back together now instead of a constant buzzing when I turned the key on it was the actual horn. I got it to stop and then when I would hit the blinkers or lights it would start again. After this hint, I started looking and could actually see it arcing from the control switch to the handle bars. After I electrical taped the handle bars underneath the switch and remounted it, the short had stopped! Everything seems to work fine now, thanks guys! Im not sure if this was how I was supposed to fix it or not but it works.
