REPLACE OEM HORN
on: July 19, 2019, 08:22:37 PM
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.
