aftermarket horns
on: May 01, 2020, 11:56:50 AM
With the abundance of peopleusing their mobile phones whist behind the wheel i have decided that i will upgrade my horn as soon as possible to try to enforce the fact thtthey could kill me for the sake of talking to a friend  :232:what i am wondering is what aftermarket horns do others use i have seen a couple on ebay here that seem as if they could make the point known they are made in italy an are fairly well priced .

Take a look at my contribution to the conversion of my X, where the installation of Italian Fiamm horns is described in detail.

Just for info. I used a Denali Soundbomb - its very loud and does the job.
Also there is a specific mounting bracket for this Horn to fit to L/H side casing.
see pics.

I installed the FIAMM 72112 Freeway Blaster Low Note Horn on my CB500X earlier this year. Installation was extremely easy and it only cost $15 USD on Amazon. The sound is far, far louder than the stock horn, yet it doesn't require any electrical modifications to your bike. I'm very happy with mine.

I think it's a European company, so it should be available in Italy.

You mean the Italian company Stebel, they are specialists for horns and signal horns. They are comparable to the Italian Fiamm.

Well i have finally got around to fitting the stebel horns today ,using the loom supplied i sorted out where i was going to hang them ,the only problem was the loom was for one horn not two so some cutting and manufacturing was required for the off shoot thankfully i have a heap of gear so there was not problem , after a few disasters with my polarity i finally got it right at one point i hit the horn button and it stayed on the only way to stop them was to disconnect the battery ,the horn wasnt fully tightened down and it was flopping around like an untrained seal they are loud even one of them .Anyway they all work now so moblie phone users and sh#tty drivers beware .
