They sound identical to me. I'll see if I can get the one from Maplins, it would be easier. ::)

Hi Luke the one I have works from a voltage of 3v all the way to 24v. I tested it using standard 12v.

They are from Maplins FK84 @ £3.59 each.

Here is a photo of the original fitted in the C5 and the one from Maplins.

It was sheer luck that my dad found a switch for the horn identical to the original.

Getting the horn from Maplins tomorrow

What have you done about the microswitch though? Have you managed to find a way to operate it from the handlebars? I've always wondered if there's a way to do that... Like if the power button to turn the motor on broke!

Yes we are using the micro-switch on the handlebars. My dad made a bracket for it so it could mount on the handlebars  ;) ;)
