Stebel Nautilus Compact Motorcycle Air Horn - Chrome

I bough this horn from Biker Highway with the plug-n-play wiring kit. This horn is LOUD. My 14 yo son says it doesn't sound very manly (I told him it sounds Eurpean), but when you live in God's waiting room (South Florida) you want to be heard even by the hard of hearing. This is truely the loudest motorcycly horn I've ever heard. The plug & play wiring kit is a must. It turned the installation from a weekend of aggrivating trips to the auto parts store into a 1/2 hr install after work. I mounted the horn to the bracket on my freeway bars where they bracket the forks. I drilled one of the holes in my existing horn bracket a little larger, bolted the horn bracket to the freeway bar bracket, tie strapped the wires to the existing harness that goes back to the battery, connected the plug & play harness per the directions and HONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK.

There's no place like 127.0.0.1!

I installed one the weekend before last. Have used it a couple of times, and it does do the trick as an attention getter. The harness does make the install pretty easy, most of my time was spent in making the bracket. Once that was done, the install went pretty quickly.

I bought mine from amazon.com, $44.99 and free shipping.....you will have to get some wire to run the included relay directly to the battery, if you don't use the relay you will melt your horn button. Included instructions work well if you follow them

mine isn't a stebel but they can both be mounted the same. I used the bracket from the factory horn and ran my own wiring to it.

Same idea. I took the bracket off the horn, drilled out one of the holes a little larger to fit on the bracket that attahces my freeway bars to the frame.... BUY THE PLUG and PLAY HARNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It will be a 1/2 hr job with it. You will need to follow the directions on the back for "it will now sound plugged into one wire and will always sound plugged into the other". There is a jumper wire that has to be connected, but the instructions with the harness are clear.
