Default New horn

Well, I bought an air horn, the compressor was large. So I went and picked up a fiamm freeway blaster low tone. And of course I can't upload video from with this app. Trust me louder than stock

Nice! Great safety feature, IMO. Most M/C horns are obsolete.

Where did you mount it? Any modifications needed to fit in the stock location?

Mounted on same spot, checked the voltage had 12 volts so no relay for the single horn. I used the stock hardware and stock mount. If I were to run dual horns or air horn I would've used a relay.

I'll post a pic tomorrow

I have the Freeway Blaster Low Tone horn on my Kingpin. It fits exactly where the stock horn was and is plenty loud. For a fraction of the cost of an air horn, its a no brainer.

How easy/difficult was it to swap out? I have one for my '05 Vegas & have pondered doing it a few times but it looks like I may need to remove the oil cooler & line in order to get to the stock horn; this could become one of those 2 hour projects that becomes a 2 week pain in the ass!
LOL!!!
Any installation knowledge,tips or suggestions greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

It's super easy, 14mm is all you need maybe it's a 13mm. 2 bolts come out, the nuts are on a plate behind the frame. You unplug the wires to the stock horn. Take old horn off the stock bracket, which is like 3 pieces of steel stacked together. Mount new horn to that with the opening pointing down. Attach wires, might have to slightly bend tabs back a touch, replace to 2 bolts, done

I find the stock one decent, but at highway speeds and wind.... who knows...

So on a scale of one to ten, what would you rate it... stock vs this, lol

Thanks for the response & info; I'll study it again - was having a problem getting to the nuts on the back side of the bracket but from your detailed procedure, it sounds like they may be permanently attached to the plate - removing the cooler & line may no longer be an issue.
To be continued...

If let's say you rate the stock horn an 8, I'll rate mine a 15. It's louder and gets the job done
