Default Looking At Louder Horns For the Pin

Sunday I was casually ripping around on a 4 lane road. Hardly any traffic, in the left lane. Some asshat is sitting at a small street waiting to jump out, cross 2 lanes and turn left to head in the other direction. Ever been riding and you get that Spidey sense that some jagoff is about to do something stupid? I got closer, there really was no traffic. No reason this turd could not have waited another 3 seconds, there was no one behind me of coming from the other direction.

But he did it. Pulled right out in front of me! I had to slam the brakes, hitting the horn and swerve hard right then left to get around this assholes minivan.

I got close enough to look right in his face and cuss the piss outta him as I was sliding to the right. This piece of shit had headphones on! I came within seconds of slamming right into the side his van, man was I pissed! There is a big median in the road so the next place to turn around was a block away at a light, otherwise I might have spun back, chased him down and kicked the piss out of the side of his his van.

The point is..people here either have loud music going or headsets for some freakin reason. Or the dumbasses are finger [email protected] a cell phone.

I need something louder to wake these idiots up. I like the idea of an air horn but no idea where it could mount on a Pin without sticking out like the ears on Prince Charles.

So, anyone know of a very loud car horn that will fit where the stock beeper is? I have crows in the area louder than this thing.

Or is there a smaller platform air horn that be hidden on a steel frame that's not too obvious? Something that is loud enough to get through headsets or or a loud stereo or wake some buffoon trying to post the latest selfie on facebook.

I've seen some that have been installed but really stick out like a sore thumb. And they can be hidden better on a Touring bike, not so much a steel frame. Any pics would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I switched to a Wolo low-tone disk horn which is much better than stock but probably not what your looking for. You might want to step up to the Bad Boy. You have to check into fitment:

The first horn doesn't give an decibel specs, just says 2x louder than stock.That Bad boy looks like a smaller platform. Need to see where I could mount it. Doesn't have fitment specs so I would need to see where I could replace the stock horn or mount it. Thanks.

I don't know if your bike has the space for these anywhere, but I installed a pair of car horns on my XR - thanks Mags. Whenever I use them, cagers look around for another car. Funny. I mounted them to the inside tops of the crash bar using PIAA type clamps.

I've got the Flamm low note freeway blaster (no relay) on my XC which is fine but like others have said; there are other choices depending on how much you want to spend. They are available at most auto parts stores.


This newish style horn just caught my eye. I don't know if it's something people here would want to try but just to know about them is cool I guess.
Blue Super Loud Single Electric Blast Tone




Click on pic above to go to Amazon.
They come in a single large size or dual small size in all kinds of color combinations. Simply do an image search to see them all.
