...on!


It is Wolo with a Kuryakyn cover.

I tried to mount it on the front frame but it is big and wouldn't fit correctly between the radiator and lower fairing. After experimenting with various possibilities, even where the stock horn was, this spot was the best. Not sure how long the horn will last since water can flood it due to the direction but we will see.

Yes it is plenty loud!

Install was easy. the hardest part was figuring out where to mount it.

That pee-wee horn just didn't cut it.

It should last there. I have a friend who has his Wolo mounted on his engine guard of his 2010 Nomad. I think he mounted it on the upper part of the bar though and has it hanging straight down.

I put a Custom Dynamics Mini Beast 5 (in pic below) on mine 'cause like you said that tiny sounding horn had to go.

I installed a Wolo horn on my Vulcan S. Much louder than the stock mosquito sounding unit. I feel like car drivers may actually hear it now.

Put mine on a few weeks ago. Was able to get it on the left side down frame. Yea it's loud. My friend who has a HD now wants one. I told him they are only made for Kawasaki's.:grin2:

Can you post a link to where you bought it? I'd like to install a manly horn.

That all depends if you want the chrome or just plain. The performance is the same (loud). The one I got is chrome and a chrome cover. I like the shiny.

I am about looking good, but I am more concerned with cost and function.

I got my basic model at O'Reilly Auto Parts for about $17.00. They had the high or low tone. I got the high tone, works great. Here is a link, Wolo 315-2T - High Replacement Horn | O'Reilly Auto Parts
That's what I am looking for, thank you!

It's all a personal choice. Mine sounds like a freight train....oh yea and it's shiny.

My $17.00 version did not require a relay. It connects with the two stock wires, a direct replacement. The instructions also described the installation if you only have one stock wire. I'm not very mechanical, so the easy install worked great for me.

I know with some motorcycles, not sure about the Vulcan, the horn switch is not capable of handling the extra power load of a lager horn and would eventually burn up if a relay was not used.

Anyone know the volt/amp capabilities of the horn switch?
I will also look in my service manual to see if it says.

The Wolo Full Blast is a drop in replacement; no relay needed. Other Wolo's do require a relay.

You can pick one of these up at Harbor Freight too if you have one close.
If you use one of the 20% off coupons that seem to be fairly easy to find it brings the cost down to $32 (reg price $39.99)
That's good to know. I also ride with the store manager of a HF here locally.
