The stock horns are located under the front lower cover... the one where the oil filter is located. There's one horn on each side. The horns you have might need a relay.

Just fitted a pair of new Strebel Magnum Hornsto replace of the duff OEM ones in a great place that I have found. Not onlydo theysound louder here but it also sorts out another problem that all of us 1500 wing owners have.

When we need to do an oil and filter change or change the spark plugs we have to pull the lower cowl which can be a bit of a pig to put back on. The problem is that if you have side marker lights fitted they tend to hit the horns and stop the cowl from going back far enough.

Remove the two OEM horns. No horns - No problem.

Anyway, where to fit the two new bigger and louder horns.

Remove the left hand pocket with the leather cover on and the right hand pocket with the lock on. Then take outeach of the under boxes which have four screws. You will find that there is plenty of room in front of where these boxes sit to fit each of the new horns.

Now all you need to do is run two wires up from the existing horn wires to each of the new horns. Replace boxes. VOALA!!!

The new horns come with fitting brackets and wire connectors plus a small relay that is not needed as the OEM horns go through a relay.

Total cost about £40. Two and a half hours work. Bought my horns from Nippy Norman Ltd.

Are you sure about that relay. My Valk had two stebil horns, very loud, but they actually draw 14 amps each. I would check you’re wiring one again because if you’re incorrect, and I am not saying you are, then 28 amps will fry the starter very fast.
