blew the stock 20 amp/250 volt fuse that came with the horn and i have gone all over hell and back (radio shack,wallmart,autozone,murrys,k-mart) to find a replacement and no one has this fuse.

everything out there is 32 volts.

i did find a 20a/250v fuse but it is ceranmic and dosent work.

can i move to a more common fuse size? if so what rating can i use?

Ok...from all the years in trucking...check a Freightliner dealer, Kentworth, International etc. :wink:

I've got them here in stock. Same setup and everything, different brand but it's the same relay.

Take the old one with you, just in case.

Also try Fleetpride or a Truck Pro type place, any place that sells parts for class 8 trucks.

you do not need a 250v fuse....that is its maximum voltage rating...the bike is 12v so 32v/20 amp fuse is good. plain old ordinary automotive fuse

i forgot to mention this horn is on a car, not a bike.

but its still 12 volts so the 20a/32v should still be ok right?

yes fuse will work....usually ceramic is used where heat is a factor
