Can't find what goes here, horn?

(1996 Classic) I've looked through many parts diagrams and I unable to locate the wiring part that clips to the horn wires at the handlebars. Does anyone know its correct name or steer me in the right direction? It does not seem to be part of the main wiring harness, or maybe I'm missing it. I've attached a photo of the clip that's on the left-side handlebars leading to horn button. Thanks!

So your looking for the housing, or this is coming off the housing , that part hooks to the clutch switch

I'm looking for the wiring that goes from the clip to the horn. Wondering if it's part of the main harass or if it's a separate wire.

So like I said before that clip connects to the clutch switch: referenced from a maintenance video that showcases contact repair of Vulcan 800. The horn is connected at the main harness

Thx, I will troubleshoot why horn not working then. OK, a 'clutch switch'. What does it do? And I am still looking for the wiring that hooks to it and to where it goes to. Is it missing from the housing altogether? I'm confused on this one. Thx!

It connects to the starter lockout switch off the clutch reference 27010

the clutch switch is connected to the starter switch to prevent the bike from starting in gear

the horn switch works by grounding out to negative ground when pressed, there's 2 leads to the horn, one is positive and the other ground, when the horn button is pressed it connects the ground lead at the horn to negative frame ground , is your horn not working?

Horn is not working. The electrical diagram shows the horn uses the same wire as the clutch switch (B/Y) and goes to a connector which is the one in my pic. I can't find the clip/wiring that hooks to it in any of the drawings which is the wiring I'm needing. Is it part of the main harness or a separate clip/wiring harness?
