Where is my horn located?

Yeah, I know where it is...

But, with only quickly looking here and there, and never thinking to search it out when I've got time, can someone point me to the general area of the stock horn location on my '07 650 V?

Wanting to upgrade, I had the hi-lo set of Fiamm horns on the last bike (130db each) and I'm thinking of doing the same here, replacing the chickadee that the bike uses now for a horn.

Thinking the hockey puck size Fiamms might be an easier install than the Stebel air tooter. And with two Fiamms... Think old Buick...

Must be buried under all that plastic somewhere...

Thanks,
Steve.

I don't know if it has changed for the 07 but on the 06 it was located by the radiatior. You can see it from the left side by getting very low and looking upwards.

I have some pics of the horn location in my write-up of the Stebel horn install:

That's a great location! Nice and simple. I've been looking at alternative mount locations and I think this may do the trick! Hell, maybe one day I'll put one on the other side and have dual Stebels!

Cheers!

My wires for the stock horn decided to go by by. I must have caught them by accident. Could someone check their bike and trace the horn wires back to where they are tied into the wiring? That will give me a starting place to look. Thanks!

There has to be some sort of award for taking the time to search a subject and coming up with a thread from over 7 years ago!

Kudos!

All this time I have been searching for the stock horn as indicated on the left side behind the radiator, only to find out that for some reason, my horn is on the right side of the radiator??!!!!

Oh well, it was a little pain in the a$$ to remove the stock wires and I come to find out that both wires are black and blue. No red and black as I assumed. I'm installing a new denalia sound bomb and need to attach to the wires accordingly. Any ideas on how to proceed? What's the result of I install the wires incorrectly? Hopefully no damage and I can just swap them around?

The two stock horn wires connect to terminals 85 and 86 on the Denali horn relay. Polarity is unimportant. Polarity on the wiring is indicated by one smooth wire and one ribbed wire. In house wiring, smooth is hot but I'm not sure that holds for low voltage wiring. It doesn't matter anyway.
