Customer service and shipping were great, very quick. When I opened the box I couldn't wait to hear it so I hooked up my 3amp battery charger to the horn, I didn't think it was that loud, even in my shop. But I knew that the little charger didn't have much power, so I still had hope.
Mounting the horn to my ST1100 wasn't too bad, secured it to the fairing support so it's just inside the lip of the fairing next to the fork. That should keep it out of direct weather.
The plug and play kit made wiring a snap.
Hit the horn button and WOW, I was impressed. Much louder than on the charger.
Took the bike for a ride and with the bike running the horn seemed louder still.
Got to give it a real world test while riding with my wife through a tourist town in NH. A Volvo wagon started to make a left in front of me, I hit the horn and that Volvo stopped so quick the family inside all lunged forward and I saw stuff inside flying forward. As I rode past them I could hear the wife yelling at her husband. My wife leaned over my shoullder and said she really liked that horn and laughed. Thanks again. (Posted on 8/1/11)
This was some of the best spending I've ever done. I bought and installed this last summer and it's saved my life several times since then. Then there's the entertainment factor. My mechanic uses it to haze the new service managers. He has everyone put their earplugs in, then he has the manager bring the bike into the shop and says "Oh, by the way have you heard the horn?".

so i ordered this horn Monday paid for 3 day delivery and got it Wednesday. THAT is service!
So as far as the horn goes, hooked it up to my existing horn wiring and blew the fuse. I used the plug and play harness to wire the horn without any issues.The horn is .... intense.You have to mount it a certain way but that wasnt that hard.The mounting bolt and nut included kinda helped. I have an 03 Areo 750 the horn nut is welded to the bracket backing so I had to screw in the bolt most of the way,then get the bracket on the horn to slip down at an angle (tightly) then 1/4 turn the horn into place. It is on there!!!!! Im sure I could have mounted it to the lay down bar or somewhere else but i wanted to keep it in the same spot. All in all you have to have some kinda mechanical ability to do this, but you dont have to be an engineer. I found out about this horn while at a local shop having my tire replaced. The guy paid over $250 for the horn and install. This is a DIY job (Posted on 4/28/11)
I have put about 5 of these horns on my Harleys over the last 150,000 miles. They are great horns but they don't hold up. They average about a year and half in my experience. I am about to buy another one because when they are working, they are the loudest horn for they money I have ever heard. (Posted on 3/27/11)
Finally got around to installing the horn and you notice the diffrence right away, But riding at 120kph with the helmet and ear plugs might not sound as loud but belive me the car drivers notices you real quick as most of them jump when i use the horn which is good enough for me. Just a note this horn had to be installed near the sub frame as it wont fit in the OEM horn area. (Posted on 10/1/10)
Just fitted the air horn to my FJR1300, and was asked to demonstrate its sound to the group of riders (20) I was with today. Everyone was amazed by the penetratingly loud sound. It made the regular horns on their bikes sound wimpish! Instructions with the Wiring Kit are excellent. The biggest challenge was finding where on the FJR1300 to attach it. In summary, the air horn's performance exceeds expectations, and is good value for money. (Posted on 8/13/10)
I bought this horn a while back and after 20 incidents stopped counting how many times it has saved my life - including this morning on the ride in when a guy in a giant F350 decided to change lanes without looking. I live and commute amongst the self-absorbed masses of yuppie iphone wankers here in Seattle and am just absolutely thrilled with the results of this horn. **** Please, Please, PLEASE consult a variety of sources before giving up on installing this horn. I struggled for hours trying to fit it onto my 2002 CBR 954RR until a buddy pointed me to some youtube videos and gave me the tips I needed. The body of the horn (the compressor) separates form the horn itself quite easily. I mounted the compressor under my tail compartment, and with about $4.00 of parts from Home Depot epoxied on a small brass nipple, ran some clear flexible tubing up to the horn and attached the leads to the battery. (*I did by the wiring harness). Once you free your mind from having to figure out how to mount the unit as one piece it totally opens up the options. Due to the extremely limited options for mounting on the 954, I actually ended up drilling some pilot holes into the horn flange and using zip ties to secure it. It's so far lasted 5,000 miles, wheelies, and 152mph run across Eastern Washington...not to mention mixing it up with all the commuters here in Seattle.

You will not regret this purchase! (Posted on 8/5/10)
I mounted my steibel where my 'little' disk horn used to be. My '94 HD horn was mounted left front below the peanut tank. I slid the bolt out that mounts the coil and gas tank took of f the old horn and spacer, and mounted the steibel in it's place. I aligned it parallel to the line of the tank and made sure I had clearence for the fork tube in a hard left, nothing touches or rubs. The relay was mounted with the coil so the wires only had a short distance to go. Horn wires connected to the relay coil, ground to the coil mount and relay negative and relay positive ran to the battery positive. Plug your ears and test! Yes, it's loud and will get immediate attention from everyone. (Posted on 7/27/10)
