Yep, those are Ma Kaws little meep, meep roadrunner horns.
Doesn't everybody know by now that the smallest most vulnerable vehicles need the loudest horns!!

I replaced mine with a pair of Fiamm Freeway Blasters that tend to get errant cagers and inattentive pedestrians attention when I have to use them. They are really just standard rams horn shaped car horns bolted on in front of the bike, right where the anemic OEM meep, meep horns were. The plain black color looks good to me.

Still looking for a space on the left side of the frame to mount a Wolo or Stebel Nautilus compact air horn too,

Did you re wire for those horns?

I know some pull more power than the stock ones and need heavier wire or seperate fusing...

Nice to see you posting here again 'Hoss....

Yeah, the horns are powered with 14 ga wire direct from the battery thru a relay. The OEM wiring would not even coax a strangled meow out of them. lol Just used that switched horn wire for a trigger to the relay.

I bought a pair of those FIAMM Highway Blasters as well, but stock wiring can't use the pair. I'm just using one, and I sealed the leads for the other horn with electric tape.

Definitely gets people's attention over the stock meeptacular horns. ^_^

Horns draw a lot of juice. 3 - 8 amps I believe. Best to use a relay with a large wire to reduce voltage drop
