Default Stebel Air Horn

Got a question for you all. I am trying to find a place to install my Stebel Air Horn on my 2013 CCT. About the only place I can think of is on the highway bars. Any suggestions or pictures of where you have installed yours?

Default install location

Don't know which Stebel you have...Wolo Bad Boy fit perfect to the right of the stereo as facing from the front inside the fairing. There is a threaded hole in the aluminum there that I used for the mount. I just extended the stock wiring but soon found it blew the stock horn/turn fuse. Added a relay and all works great. Sorry no pics, but if you search, there s a great photo write-up on here from another member.

Second that on the right side of the stereo as looking at it from the front, under the outer fairing. I also added the relay and all works great. Much better than stock. thouhgt I had a picture of mine installed but I don't.

I have a FIAAM (sp?) [much the same as Stebel] and here's where I put mine...

Wire it via a relay direct to the battery. Use the stock horn wiring to activate.

I broke mine into 2 pieces. I mounted the compressor and relay next to the battery and ran a hose back to the horn half which is tucked behind the rear cylinder.

Here's my Stebel Nautilus, on the right side of the bike (the left side, if you're looking at an unclothed fairing), underneath the fairing.

I have nine pics-and-captions on the horn install in my gallery, starting at this pic: http://www.billanddot.com/victory-xct/#9

Interestingly, the April issue of Motorcycle Consumer News arrived yesterday, with a review of horns. The Fiamm non-air horns are about the same loudness as the Stebel, which is about the same loudness as the equivalent Wolo. In any case, I've had the Nautilus on my XCT for two years now, no issues, and I had the same model on my Burgman 650 for five years, no issues, and I like the output tones. Make sure you have the trumpets pointing in the general direction of down, to ensure any condensation, etc., buildup drains out.

I have a Stebel, black, mounted on the left side under the crash bar at the top. You can hardly see it. But this is on a XC with the forged bars. I used the existing horn wires but had to go to a slightly bigger fuse.

I see there are a variety of horns that people are using for upgrades on the CC. Can folks who have upgraded list the brand and model number that you used? Or are there specs I should look for to make sure it would be compatible? I've never replaced one before. Maybe it is just as simple as power & ground and that's all?

What are the pros & cons with these various different horn models? I don't necessarily want mine to sound like a train, but I would like something more like an American car than the 'meep meep' of the pathetic stock horn.

Thanks,
Rob
