Plug and play horn

Does anybody know the draw of the stock horn? While I like the Stebel, I do not have the confidence to mess with the wiring and would prefer to do a plug and play situation as I did with my other bike in which I replaced the stocker with a FIAMM Freeway blaster purchased at Pep Boys. While it may not be much louder, the sound gets more attention than the stock embarassment.
I believe that in 8 years of riding street bikes, I have used the horn less than a few times.

It's not much. To get real volume, a horn relay is really needed. It doesn't get much simpler than the Eastern Beaver single horn Stebel kit above or dual kit for dual Fiamms below. http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/Pr...horn_kits.html
Just connect to the battery, the horn(s) and plug the trigger wires into the stock horn leads.


Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
