Can anyone advise how to fit Fiamm twin horns. Best location for them or alternative horn type to fit.
Thanks.

Mine came with a Stebel TM80 low note, its loud enough and fits in place of original horn using original wiring.

I had a 5 pair of low/high note 'snail horns' off eBay on a previous ride and they were proper loud.

When I looked at changing mine - for a single unit so as to leave the wiring as-is I found a few things interesting.

Along with the shortage of space (mkII) a new bracket would be required, but that is possible.

Standing 'a distance away' - aka the wife outside the garage (say 12' from the forks) - the standard horn sounded louder than anything else I tried.  The alternatives sounded nicer, less scooterish and better to the ear, but not louder.  As I only wanted to upgrade for volume (I don't used my horn much but I want it to count when needed) I left the original in place.

I'm thinking either live with the squeak or go all out and use a compressor with all the work that entails.
Only do it right - no bodging please.

I fitted a Denali Sound Bomb split air horn. Mounted the compressor where the original horn was and mounted the horn behind the right hand fairing panel. All i can say is it is named appropriately. I bought their wiring harness that comes with a relay already wired up. It is a little pricey but saved a lot of cutting and shutting of wiring.  Not difficult to install if you take your time and do it logically. I fitted a power distribution box under my seat so I don't have a heap of wires coming off the battery's positive terminal. I have a couple of other electrical accessories fitted as well. It's not the prettiest of horns but it's out of sight behind the fairing.

The horn has been on the bike for probably 3 years. I ride all year round and it has been 100% reliable.
