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.
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.
Just a warning to anyone thinking of putting a horn any larger than the factory one in the same location, IT WILL HIT YOUR FENDER! Had my 900LT since summer 08 and the ONLY damage on the bike so far is from my aftermarket horns. On the plus side, they sound like a "59" buick.
You can't go wrong with the Stebel... it's plenty loud enuf to get someone's attention, even if they have the windows rolled up, the a/c blasting and the radio on. It's saved our butts more than once when we've gotten to wake up a dazed cager who's about to change lanes over the top of us.
A previous post commented that it won't fit where the stock horn was... true. I had to mount mine on the frame in front of the shifter on a small piece of metal I bought at Home Depot and drilled a couple holes in it. Just be sure not to be sitting on the ground beside it when you decide to test it !!
I tried adjusting mine with that screw on the back. It still sounds like it belongs on 50cc scooter. I was thinking about getting one of those ringy ding things kids put on their bicycle bars to complement it's cute sweet sound. That will really impress those HAWG riders.
Really thinking about removing the heel shifter portion of the shifter. I like to hang my heels off the rear portion of the floorboards and the back part of the shifter is in the way in on that side. I'm used to shifting with just the toe part of the shifter mechanism anyway. Anyone made this...
I just developed a rotating "clink/clunk" noise from what sounds like the lower left (transmission) area when rolling either forward or reverse. The bike is either in neutral or in gear with clutch pulled in (disengaged) and whether the bike is running or off.
First noticed it fresh out on...
I am new to this. I have a 2008 Vulcan 900 classic B. It has the stock exhaust. Can I change just mufflers or do I need a whole new exhaust. I want a different sound. Also, where can I get good parts and accessories cheap
I thought I would post a few pic's of my 2007 classic with HD Fairing. Maybe the info will help other's who wish to add a custom fairing. I when with a 2014 Street glide fairing, a e-bay knock off. I added the accessory switch cover and the lower fork fairing cover under the headlight. To me, it...
I have the a stock 12' head light in v900 classic.
What is the next legal, but better HEADlight bulb upgrade ( just the camry verson, not the ferrari version) thats great for during the day or night?
Also, is the labor hard, what does it intail?
thanks to all!
