Me, too. There may be some confusion in this thread -- the Mini Sound Bomb is inexpensive and plug 'n' play, unlike the air horn model.

that's pretty dang good. i've got a stebel that has been sitting in the lazy box for a few of years while i picked up a piaa sport horn around the same time and put it on the wife's bike. the piaa is a straight swap with no relay and nice and loud. it's about $50 these days though. the msb is the way to go.

I used to change out the horns on all of my bikes but don't bother anymore.

I found that the times where I really needed the horn I was too busy braking or accelerating to get out of the way and no time to use the horn.

I only used it to if it looked like someone might potentially be drifting in my direction and there is no guarantee that they would even pay attention to it, and some didn't which then meant I still had to take evasive maneuvers.

I found that by changing my riding style and where I rode I never needed to activate the horn.

I guess it just decided it is better for me to ride like I am invisible and not be where someone could merge into me. I have actually started creating custom avoidance areas and roads in my GPS so when I ask it to get me somewhere it avoids those shopping districts, etc. that I don't want to ride in anyway.

I bought a Stebel Nautilus air horn a few years ago to put on my Ninja 1000 but changed my mind. Then installed it on my GMC truck. It will definitely get your attention.

Here is another cheaper option I did on my V-650 a couple of years ago. https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...ual-horns.html

It has been very effective on several occasions...aka helped keep things on the rubber.

I use MY horns as a "critter avoidance tool", and used it that way this morning. Saw a white-tail doe a few hundred yards ahead, so I simultaneously got ON the brakes and ON the horn (which is a "Stebel clone" - a WOLO Bad Boy).

So far - they've all run away well before I got to where they'd been.
