Default Air horn by Stebel

So, been looking for a decent horn to replace the stock squeaker on my Vegas. Found this horn..looks like a real head turner...and at a decent price (about $40)! Here's the write up...

Dual-tone air horn from Stebel of Italy available in Black or Chrome. Loud enough to convince other drivers that there's a derailed freight train barreling down on them. Don't press the horn button in the garage, it hurts! At 139dB it can be heard for almost 3 city blocks! YEEEOOOWWW!
Includes a single M8 mounting bolt and nut, as well as a relay for providing a direct, high current attachment to the motorcycle's battery.
No wires, fuses, or bike-specific mounting brackets are included.

Keep this in mind: sound energy doubles for every 3 points you go up in the decibel scale. It means that the Stebel Nautilus horn, which produces 139 dB of sound, puts out a LOT more sound than these popular horns:
800% of the sound energy of the more expensive 130dB FIAMM Freeway Blaster
600% louder than the 130 dB Pro Pad Mini Beast horn
650% louder than the 128dB Rivco dual trumpet horn


You will not be dissapointed - just make sure you wire the included relay properly, as replacement horns used without a relay don't get enough electrical current to be fully effective.


Here's the URL link - also has a cool vid of the horn... www.aviciouscycle.ca

Actually its plug and play at least on my 06 Jackpot. I had one and all I did was remove the stock horn and extend the wires and put it in the California Emission Canister cover. When I go my air ride I sold it and went back to a wimpy horn. The air ride compressor now resides there.


That Stebel horn is LOUD. I've been on the highway doing 70mph and people hear it!!

Damn it Diamond!!!

Don't take this the wrong way but every time I see your bike I get some chub action goin' on. It ain't about you though. It's about your sweet JP. You set it up pretty much how I had planned on doing to my salt and pepper JP.

Sure wish I was as wealthy as some around here and could have done both. Now that would have been fantastic, eh!!!

This horn is made under several brand names. I bought mine at Harbor Freight for 1/2 what they are asking for the Stebel horn. Also, some auto parts stores are now carrying this horn.

It is a nice horn and loud.

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

Never get to busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

LOL..thanks! I think?

Yeah luckily when I was doing the expensive stuff to Porti I had a very good paying job AND was partially sponsored by a dealership. Since then I have become a victim of the economy and live on UI.
