Stebel Mini Air Horn

I am about to pull the trigger on the Stebel horn upgrade. Do I need to purchase a relay with this as well? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I know the eBay version of this I installed on my bike 100% required a battery fed relay (my horn came with the relay) because the factory wiring to the horn could not provide enough current to run it properly... I'd suggest getting the relay kit for sure...

Yeah, that is what I figured. Thanks for the verification!

When I clicked on the link I'd swear that the red gizmo in the packaging was the needed relay

Q and A on the listing says that it comes with a relay, but no harness.

i picked one up a few years ago to put on my Ninja 1000.

Ended up installing it on my GMC truck.

Great horn. Definitely gets folks attention.

Thanks for all of the help, once again! I just ordered the horn and the wiring harness as it comes with the relay. I'll post up once I get it installed!!

Just DON'T test it in your garage when you're finished UNLESS wearing hearing protection...!

Haha, now that is solid advice! The horn just arrived today, but the harness is delayed until tomorrow.

you'll love this horn.... a dingleberry cut me (and other traffic) off last summer in his Duramax and when I gave him the business end of the air horn i think he thought there was a Kenworth coming for him as he painiced and drove up over the curb to get off the road and stopped... the look on his face when what came by was my Versys and I sporting him the middle finger and me laughing was priceless....

Over the years I've had several vehicles that were coming into my lane ALMOST roll their cars at the sound of a KENWORTH/ PETERBILT right beside them, as they pulled back into their own lanes in a panic!!!

FWIW - the horn BLAST is ALL I give them - MANY idiots like that are "packing"....

I love it when horn Justice gets its criminal! unfortunately up here in Canuckistan we aren't afforded the basic right to carry protection (I'm a huge advocate for concealed carry).... At most you'll get the finger back or the offender will go to the closest Tim Hortons (RCMP DETACHMENT) to fill out a hurt feelings report...
