Never liked the "tiny" sound of the stock horn.

Replaced with FIAMM 40365 D Low Tone this AM. I am a rider not a "wrench" and It took me 45 minutes. No additional relays etc. Plug and Play like

Stock horn rated at 105dB. Fiamm 130dB
Stock horn draw 3 AMP. Fiamm 4 AMP

OSHA rates a power mower at 107dB, Pneumatic riveter at 4' 125dB

Significantly louder and more annoying, very similar to the Goldwing now

Pop off the lower leg shield, black thing in front of the radiator, two rivits, two screws

Stock horn is on the upper right, facing the rear of the bike

12mm to remove bolt holding horn bracket, pull off female spades

Remove stock horn from stock horn bracket, KEEP STOCK HORN BRACKET

Remove FIAMM horn from FIAM horn bracket

Re-Install FIAMM horn on Stock horn bracket. Male spades at 10 o'clock position, same as stock

The FIAMM male spades are wider set than Stock, so "nip" the two plastic "bridges" between the stock female spades to gain a little room

Connect female spades to male spades

Re-Install stock horn bracket with FIAMM horn attached

Re-Install tupperware

Cost was about $13. Don't remember where, I bought it for another bike, never got around to installing :wink:

"Goggle' Fiamm for sources

I'll be using Fiamm's #72102 "E" HighTone Freeway Blaster, rated at 132dB.

Obnoxiously loud!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

I picked up the Freeway blasters, high-E and low-F. The high-E was significantly bigger than the old horn abd the low-F. I popped it on using steps similar to above and had some problems. The horn would hit the back of the fender over speed bumps. It also hit the left fork when turned almost as far as you need to go to activate the ignition lock.

Has anyone else had problems replacing the horn on a 2005 650?
