I agree.  I spent a lot of time trying to find a better place to mount mine.  No way did I see how it could have worked at the top of the radiator.

Well, I'm glad to be the test subject. I'll let you all know if my horn gets smashed into my radiator. :yikes:

I just installed the Nautilus's bigger brother, Stebel "Compact Truck Horn" on my 2010. No pics though. Much deeper tone than the Compact Nautilus. The downside is it's physical size.

I installed it on the right side, under the upper fairing. I used two stainless, rubber insulated clamps to hold a short piece of aluminun bar stock to the fairing support tubes. It's located as far to the rear as I could get it and above the intake duct.
As to wiring...i ran a 15a fused 14 awg, pair of wires from the battery box to the relay/horn and a pair of wires from the stock horn with double blade adapters to the coil side of the relay. The stocker works in conjuction with the Stebel.

This one sounds at 300 Hz. http://www.stebel.it/stebel2009/products.asp?IDserie=17&uso=&tipologia=TUNING


I have been looking for a place on the net to buy this and can't come up with anything. Where did you get it? All I can find is the smaller one or a place in Australia that wants AU$38.00 for shipping!

I am not sure.  But I did want the compact one- not just for the size, but also because it is two tone.  The one, above, is only a single tone.  However, that one does have the advantage that the trumpet is down firing instead of front firing, making it even better for inside-fairing mounting (if it will fit).

I just installed this horn the way that was noted here inside the right side and its works fine and a nice install.

I had a chance to use it for real today, for the first time.  It was effective.

Seems this horn would blow our own eardrums into our brains, no?  I still haven't the hang of this sport-touring thing, even though i just completed an 8,000 mile trip.

Nah, it isn't THAT bad.  The important thing is you (the operator of it) are prepared for the blast (and wearing a helmet).  Just as much sound goes down as up, too.    Or you can be adventurous and mount it the RoadKingX way and get full forward effect instead.

Believe it or not I have dual horns on my bike. They are installed using the screw on each side for the front turn signals.
