    Question About Loud Horns

    I have been looking for a really loud motorcycle horn. I have heard that the Stebel Horn is suppose to be a good horn. Does anyone have any experience using this horn or do you know of a better one.
    Thanks,
    Charles

    Hi Charles:

    Check the ON, February 2010, for a novel way to implement the Stebel horn.

    Stebel is as loud as it gets in a small package. Beware Chinese copies.

    The factory horns on a K1100LT are extreamly (sp) loud. Harbor Frieght also has a very loud horn.

    I've got two

    Nautilus, one on my Vespa and one on my R75/6. People WILL hear you. I'm thinking about putting one in my Honda Fit as well.

    Had a woman throw her coffee cup in the air, drop her phone and her newspaper while drifting into my lane.

    She was not amused. I was not dead. Seemed like an even deal to me.

    She wet her pants and you're unhurt. Much more than even deal.
    I love my Steblel Nautilus horn, and an looking for a location to mount one in my car.

    What is the novel tip?

    I've got a Stebel on my bike, must have missed the ON write up, and can't find that issue.

    Looks like a good upgrade. Any hints on mounting on a 2011 RT?

    The stock horns on my '03 RT are extremely loud. I believe they are the dual Fiamm's.

    I've complained to BMW NA management about later RT and GS horns being feeble scooter horns. I can't understand why BMW got it so right with my bike and so wrong with later model bikes.

    Go to your local junk yard. You should be able to find a couple of Fiamm's for a few bucks.
