Fiamm Highway Blaster

After reading lackluster reviews regarding the life-span of the Stebal air horn, I found what I think is a pretty decent alternative.

The Fiamm Highway Blaster comes in high and low tones, rated at 130db and is easy to install.

I installed it in the stock horn position, using the offset bracket that comes with the horn. Its a tight fit, but you can get your hands up there to remove the stock horn bracket. You will have to remove the left side fairing to access.

I had chosen the High note "E" horn, bought at Canadian Tire for about 28 clams (half that in the US).

Although it was nice and loud, the single tone sounded kinda dull, so I whipped up a harness to use the stock horn as well. I mounted it using the stock bracket to the unused hole on the bottom left-side lip of the fuel tank.

With both horns going, it is LOUD. I dont use my horn very much and suspect a relay will not be required.

Sorry, didnt take any pics....didnt think of it at the time.

Cheers!

Good horn(s). I run the dual set up and have been quite pleased.
