Don't mean to hijack the thread,
but I was wondering if you went to a heavier wire size and fuse? I've had one on the shop shelf for several years, because when I mounted it, it would blow the 10A fuse. That to me, indicated that it needed a heavier fuse, which also means heavier wires needed, at least I would think that would be the case. I didn't want to go to the hassle of rewiring just for the horn, which I think involved lifting the tank to do the job.
Use a relay and you will not have this problem. I mounted mine on the brake side like brianinkanata. Works excellent.
