With out a doubt the VN900 is ghey. That is my only real complaint. Heck my wife's Savage 650 had a nicer sounding horn. Listen to a VN1600 for a nice sounding tone.

Use a Seafit horn ($24, West Marine), problem solved. I "had" one on my 900 but my boat horn died in the middle of getting a safety inspection on my boat - had to steal it off the bike to get my boat sticker rather than reschedule the inspection. It's easy to rig it in place of the OEM.

It just occured to me that I had never used the horn on the LT, it was already inspected when I picked it up. Now I know what a GHEY horn sounds like. I can fart louder than that.

Horn change is on my "to do" list. I've been thinking about going down to O'Reilly's and getting a pair of car horns. Anybody done this? Any suggestions?

I don't know about the gay thing, but be patient. As your bike gets older, it should deepen and mature....

A few weeks ago I hit the horn to warn this chick that turned in front of me and she never even heard it. The sound is very weak.

replacement horn

I really like my replacement Stebel Compact Nautilus. For $39 from Dennis Kirk I thought was a good price. It is super loud and not huge. I mounted it on my top engine guard mounting bracket between the fender till I heard a knocking noise when I went over a bump, (wish I would have seen the post saying not too!) hit the front fender. Now I have it mounted it near the rear brake lower and still facing toward the front of the bike so it projects out.

The stock horn certainly doesn't fit the look and sound of my bike!! A replacement is on my toys list as well
