Replacement horn?

Anyone replace the horn on their bike? I'm looking for plug-n-play options... I don't really want to deal with adding a relay.

And the Accord Horn sounds like a Cadillac. My Element came with a wimpy horn. Someone suggested the Accord Horn. It was night and day.

I took your advice, it showed up yesterday in the mail. I'm hoping to install it tonight.

The documentation says I need to install a relay? True or false?

Mine was plug and play. I bought the 132 db low tone fiamm. $14 at o'reilly.
Unbolted/unpluged oem and new bolted right up. I did have to remove the oem spacer washers and add a fender washer to keep the stock bracket. Doesnt seem to have any vibration. And I can hear it over my race core muzzy!!

Sam one I bought, the low tone. I'll try and sneak in to the garage tonight and swap them out. I'll let you know how it goes! Thanks!

I added the Fiamm horn without the relay and it sounds good (for a horn). Haven't had too many reasons to use it though. It was a piece of cake to install.
