I'm tired of the irritating sheep-like bleat the LC120 makes from the OEM horn and wanted to fit a set of decent horns - I used to have a set of Fiamm electrics on my GPz1100 which worked a charm :twisted:

I see I can also get Stebel air horns (the Nautilus compact looks good) for under £20 ...

Which one's have you used, or could recommend?

Cheers

I stuck a pair of Halfrauds specials on the other week. Ring IMSMC. They give a good blast that's for sure and they were easy to swap over. I can't believe that there is a Rolls Royce of horns. That's just daft.

That reminds me of the time a mate of mine liberated a set of horns late at night from a Romanian train, we fitted them to his truck on his return to the UK, you always new when he was in the area after that.

Ive been looking for a new horn for mine. I really cannot understand how these people manage to sell these without a sound clip... Its beyond me. I have thought about installing a compressor to double for tyres and, use as an air horn... Anyone any ideas about pressures for a standard truck supply..? have you any videos of your 12v supply ''truck horn''

Hi SC
Most trucks and coaches run at 100psi with a few going up to 120psi.
With a compressor and tank you will have no issues.
Even train horns run at 100psi and they are mega loud :D
