Default horn mount

I have my Wolo Bad Boy horn. Looks just like a Stebel. Looking for a mount point easier than those mentioned, two come to mind.
The first is to reinforce the floor of the left glove box and mount it inside the lower, under the glove box, partially exposed. The second option is to fabricate a simple triangle bracket and use the two bolts on the right side trunk support to mount the bracket. Either would be way easier than the other methods described.
Can anyone talk me out of it?

Dave

I separated the horn from the compressor and then mounted the horn behind the chin fairing. The compressor I mounted on the rear frame behind the rear fender. I then ran black tubing to the front to the horn portion.

I'll have to look at separating them. It leads to a bunch of new options.

I used a Dremel to cut off the plastic band that holds the horn to the compressor and slid it off. I then clamped the tubing to the compressor. On the horn segment I fit a brass nipple and epoxied it in place.

You can also get the Wolo Model 400 Airmite2. The horns are separated already. http://www.wolo-mfg.com/air.htm

I found a horn from a 58 Buick that worked. Other than that you'll just have to keep choking the goat.

Irv,
You can buy a standard replacement horn at just about any auto parts store. They can be found in high, low, and high/low tones and will fit in the factory location. I went with the high tone and it's about twice as loud as the original.

My Stebel air horn's been under the rear fender for about a year now - blasts nice and loud, and has worked without a hitch.

To me, having the horn out of plain view was important - but you seem to be wanting to show it off - just make sure you figure out how to conceal its wires. Also it does not like moisture, so riding through rain with the horn exposed might spell disaster.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

I'm not sure what model Wolo I have. Looked like I'd need to remove the outer covers to separate them. Sure would make it easier to locate the halves than the whole thing in one place.
