First let me preface this by again stating that I am no electronics expert.

When I bought my bike the turn signals were off, and since I have removed the horn as well. These bullet connectors are tucked in, but essentially just sitting open. Does this cause a voltage drop across my charging system? What's the best way to tie up these loose ends? Can I just connect the two wires?

I think that connecting the wires will cause a voltage drop or short. If you aren't running indicators just leave them unplugged from the loom.

horn wires wouldn't short unless/until you pushed the button, then it would be a direct short, just leave them loose from each other, but you could tape them down to the loom if you want them out of the way and not hanging

Cool thanks. That's what I've done, just didn't know if I should dress the connections or not.

The horn wire can short without pushing the button. The horn is normally "hot" and the horn button provides its ground. To be secure, get a spray can of ignition/electrical connector sealer. Spray the connectors, let them dry and wrap them in tape. The stuff is good for protecting the rest of your connectors, too - as well as the battery posts. you can spray it on bulb sockets (cover the bulb) after installing the bulb to inhibit corrosion.
