After Market Horn
« on: October 11, 2013, 02:00:54 PM »
I hate the beep beep horn that most bikes have, including the Trophy.  Has anyone mounted a stebel or similar horn to their new bike? I have one left over from my ST-1300 and would like to install it.  I'm thinking I can just install the 12V relay at the end of the current horn wiring and power the horn directly from the battery? Or, is the horn higher tech than that?

I have one (in a box still not fitted) and you would trigger the relay using the existing horn wires and 'switch' through power from the battery.  The new horn takes quite a bit of power and the existing horn and fuse mint not be man enough.  It is important to fuse the battery wire close to the battery end to make the power wire as safe as possible.

The reason it is still in the box is that although it says it is mini I could not find anywhere to fit it? The one I have is big and is shown fitted more towards the back wheel.  I think this would wake me up too much.  :180:

I mucked with the bike this afternoon and it looks like there is room to put the stebel where the stock horn is. I'm worried about the heat there because it's plastic. Then it hit me, the wing has a great horn and it's metal! I '  going to order one and see how it works.

I have two versions of the Screaming Banshee horn, one (a separate compressor and horn configuration) I plan to install on my Tiger 800XC, and one (compressor/horn unit together) that I had planned to install on my Sprint ST, which I traded for the Trophy SE.  Has anyone installed either of these Banshee configurations on the Trophy?

Maybe not. There are 2 and they cost about 100 apiece
