Hi all.

All of a sudden my horn repeatedly sounds when I engage my tilt lock. Seems odd. Anyone had that happen. Shall I just disable the horn?

No, do NOT disable the horn. It is informing you that there is a serious issue.

Have you checked the fluid level of the tilt lock system?

Has the bike ever had any fluid leaks at the front end?

Do you regularly park the vehicle long term (more than a couple of hours) using only the tilt lock system?

And has the bike had a tilt lock service i.e. fluid flush and renewal?

Had the tilt lock done about 12 months ago. I have not sued the tilt lock for about 4 months and always use the stand as the connector got damaged. I have read that it not to hard to replace the fluid. Just a question what fluid do I use?

IF there are no leaks, then the problem lies elsewhere in the tilt lock system such as stuck motor, cable damaged/broken, pressure sensor, wiring issues, etc.

DOT4 is the spec for the tilt lock, same stuff as for the braking system

Or a small leak in the pressure switch.
