Which bike do you have? I was able to mount mine on the LH motor mount on my 1000. It looks similar to this install.

Air horns are a good investment on these bikes. I had to blast someone yesterday that was slouching his way out to cut me off. Wow did he jump.

Please keep in mind, the air horn is not magical. They will probably hear you now, but it does not guarantee they are going to react the way you expect.

Ride safe.

You can also do a nice, bet install under the front cowl by separating the two pieces of the horn and locating them on opposite sides fastened to the cowl support structure, and connected by a piece of vinyl tubing.

It's weather-protected under there, and I don't think the Wolo is designed for open-to-the-elements motorcycle use.
