I`m about to replace mine with a Stebel Nautilus, but it could take a month or two, I`ll have it done at my dealer at the next maintenance (36K)

I replaced the standard horn with one from Halfords, a "Ring 12 Volt Compact Twin Air Horn" for approx £30. I wanted it behind the left side panel out of sight and originally intended using a Stebel Nautilus i had kicking around from previous bikes but it looked a bit of a squeeze. As it was, the Halfords horn is a tight fit so i wouldn't have liked to fit anything larger. The only option would have been to dismantle the Stebel and mount the compressor separately which meant more hassle so i opted for the Halfords one instead.

Stengel Magnum goes in behind the left panel, no compressor to worry about fitting and loud as hell

Thanks guys, I`ll sell my nautilus on the GS forum without problem, I`ll be ordering a Magnum. The Nautilus came off my R1150GS.
