...horn upgrade suggestions?
Written by nataharli on 4/28/2010 at 11:36 pm

Hi, Leland and Doug...

The air horns I have on Nataharli are WOLO brand. They were $19 at a local
discount auto parts store. They do indeed have two trumpets, but they're only
something like four and five inches long.

The compressor is mounted to the inboard side of the left-hand mirror mount. The
two trumpets are zip-tied to the cowl stay, one behind each of the two "speaker
locations" in the dash, with the bells of the horns pointing downwards towards
the headlight.

These horns have been on the bike since fall of 2001, and no issues so far,
except for a tendency to rattle off one of the female spade connectors on the
bottom of the compressor when I spend time riding rough roads in a sporting
fashion (like the Lost Coast on the PCH ride every September)! Otherwise,
they've been bulletproof.
