The relay is a add on.The relay is energized by the button and the switch part can provide much more power to a different type of horn.
I used this method to operate a pair of F150 truck horns.

I've had similar issues w/ other bikes. Sometimes the guts of the horns get a little rusty. A quick shot of WD-40 and playing with the tuning screw loosened them up.
