    Air Horn

    I looked for any previous threads on this and couldn't find any.  But I thought there has got to be one because the standard fitted horn is pretty ordinary  :148:
    Soooo; has anybody fitted an air horn to their pride and joy?   :187:
    If so, what air horn, why, and where?   :187:
    Are you happy with the end result?   :062:
    Are there any tips you have?   :821:

    I too found the Standard OE Horn a bit disappointing- so fitted a Stebel Nautilus Air Horn instead....
    I did the upgrade at the same time as I was fitting the R&G Adventure Bars - as there is a bit of bodywork to remove, naturally

    It's much better.

    Other horns are available...

    .

    I think to buy a number 2.
    1 at the left side of the bike, 1 at the right side.

    I love to have a horn of the US trains.

    The stock horn is pathetic. Stebel (or equivalent) is the way to go!

    Hi Gordon, was it just a case of connecting the existing electrics and bolt fixing ?  Ta    :821:

    YMMV but I used a relay to power the Stebel because it draws a lot more current than the stock unit.

    I was just considering doing this very thing. Would this be much easier if I also order the wiring harness kit? It looks like it includes everything you need to draw straight from battery.

    You can order the wiring harness, but be prepared to cut down the wiring loam to fit to size. I just made my own and bought a relay at Autozone. (only because it is 1 mile away!)
