If the horn and the indicators are on the same handlebar maybe it is a problem with the operation there?

I would look at the switches on the handle bars...these are quite cheap to replace...try the starter button on the horn as you know this works.....or use a bit of wire to cross the termials in the block conecter to see if it is the switches....hope this helps..

Gilera runner indicator/horn problem

Sounds like the solaniod is duff ( thats the thing that makes the clicking sound ) or it could be a short circuit which would explain the weak horn

Gilera 50 Front Runner will not turn over

Hi, Luke before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

1996 piaggio hexagon, battery not receiving charge from engine, indicators and lights go funny with revs, is it the rectifier, the battery was brand new (gel type) fully charged about three weeks ago,...

Find the reg/rect. check the AC voltage going in, should be about 18-26v & 3000RPM. If you have voltage check the out put Red and frame should be above battery voltage.If not turn off engine and check voltage at reg/rect Red wire (+) and Black(-) if fitted could be conected through body to frame..It should be at battery voltage.if not check for burnt or dirty conectors on the red lead and or the black lead if fitted or the mounting bolt for the reg/rect.
If you have battery voltage and AC voltage at the reg/rect suspect the reg/rect. some units have an extra wire that can be an ignition feed that has power on it when the key is on, but sure these dont have it.

If you dont have AC voltage check the (usualy) yellow wire some can have 1 or 2 wires. If it has 2 wire check voltage across both, if it only has one check yellow and the frame.

No Horn

sounds like you have a dirty or missing ground connection or a fuse that's bad. the ground problem is usually best left to a technician (it can get pretty involved, but the fuse is a quick check and fix you can look at it and see if it is blown and get a new one at any auto parts store.
