color of horn ground wire?

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

okay, i did look the site for the answer to my question didnt find so here i go. simple my 2016 gu has a stock horn with two wires which one is ground or hot ? one wire is pink one is brown.in the event nobody knows other than the 50/50 chance method how can i tell which one is hot. p.s. i do have a volt meter maybe turn the ignition on and see i dont like electric stuff so i would rather have someone tell me the color. im such a coward need someone to tell me the color.

It's pink that's live from fuse #4, brake light switches circuit. Brown goes to horn button, thence to ground. (Via the switch.)

Okey-doke. :D

I only looked at wiring diagram.

Bit misleading tho it's the only brown wire that doesn't go directly to ground.

Incidentally BMW also use brown for ground wires.
