    Jon--

    I wouldn't worry about sparks or short circuits or anything bad, merely, either the horn will make no sound or it will make a shit bucket of sound. When I said jumpers, I actually meant scrap wire pieces that will functionally jump between the terminals and / or mount lug on the horn and the battery poles. And, implied the horn would be in your hands at the time of the test. Thus you likely will be holding onto a horn in the process of doing what it is designed to do.

    Horns are very simple noise makers, don't sweat the small stuff.

    Reminds me of when I first got my license I was on a old Yamaha Scrambler that I bought for about $400. When I got to the DMV for the riding test - discovered the horn had stopped working. Brother-in-law quickly determined it was bad ground somewhere and discretely shaved some insulation off the ground wire from the horn button close to the grips. When I demonstrated to the tester that the horn functioned - while it looked like I was pushing the horn button I was actually pressing the wire to the bars to ground the horn. :D
