    REPLACE OEM HORN

    Has anyone changed the horn ?
    Is it a straight forward job and what is recommended.
    Id just like it to be a big loud blast to suit the big CT.

    Removal is a breeze.  Two wires and one bolt, all with easy access.  Installation of the aftermarket replacement might not be so easy.  I guess choose carefully on the horn itself.  And I agree it is worth changing. 

    One bad thing about this site.  Every time I come here I want to spend more money on my bike!

    There isnt much space to replace the horn if you want it in the same spot.
    So I bought very loud dual tone snail horns (130dB), placed one on the left and one on the right side under the fairings.
    They still have to be compact so a Stebel nautilus wasnt an option. The only horn I could find was a China one, normally dont like the crapy quality but it is still working very well.

    I've put a Denali Mini Sound Bomb in place of the OEM horn. Easy to swap over. :046:

    I did the Stebel Nautilus Compact in the under left fairing.  Tight fit but a perfect location.
    Used relay for power,  original wiring to activation.
