Getcha a Decent Horn
My '05 Wee has the same problem my old KLR650 had - the horn sounded like a joke off the RoadRunner cartoon. Push the horn button and I'd hear...."meep meep." Guy driving car in front of me wouldn't even turn his head or look up in rear view.
I did solve that problem and want to do the same on my Wee, but couldn't remember - which horn.....?? Tonight I dug thru old receipts and it does pay to be a pack rat - I found it.
I bought those horns (a pair) from Harbor Freight,p.n.#99911 for $9.99 plus shipping of around $7.00.
When I sold the KLR, those horns were a real factor in the sale. Told the prospective buyer, "listen to this," and pushed the button. Haha......he jumped and started laughing - "never heard horns like that on a bike," he said.
Mounting is critical. You can't just bolt them on and go. The kit comes with 2 flexible metal straps about 3" long. You "must" mount the horns on those straps and bolt the straps to the frame. Use a horn relay to handle the load and test, test, test.
When you get it right there's no question - those horns blast. I ordered mine 5 minutes after finding that receipt. Enjoy. Lars
