    What was the name of that extremely loud horn ? (130 odd decibels)

    I got one and installed it a couple of weeks back when then horn thread

    It was a lot bigger than what I was expecting and this made it a little
    tricky to install. I ended up making my own bracket so it would fit (just)
    where the old horn was.

    It is very loud.

    I did try the plug and play method but the horn was not getting enough
    power so I had to use the relay provided.

    Yes, I was afraid of that. I hate the idea of running extra wiring,
    but I guess it's essential. I really must get that horn. The one on
    the Hyosung wouldn't startle a zen monk meditating in the middle of
    the road...

    On my bicycles, I use the air zound. It's great in that's it's
    instant (rather than a 90ms delay with the nautilus stebel), but it's
    a pain in that you have to keep recharging the bottle with a footpump
    every week or after every couple of uses (or, since I've turned it up
    to 11, barely a single use).

    When I was alternating back and forth between gravel and tarmac today,
    I wanted a humvee style compressor system to put a programmable amount
    of air into the tyres, and incidentally keep a bottle charged for the
    stebel without needing the electric motor. And then I'd turn it up to
    12 just to scare those pussy Spinal Tap guys.

    Of course one does. The other 99 out of a hundred get bitter.

    The wiring / fitting instructions are crap (and in the teeniest font I
    have ever seen) so I resorted to downloading the pdf from the
    manufacturer's web site.

    Don't let it put you off Gerry - the cacophonous result is most satisfying.

    My pet bugbear is horns, they are extremely rarely used legally,they are
    almost always after the event or used as a greeting, but I still want
    one for revenge.
    when someone frightens the hell out of me unnecessarily or to annoy me I
    would like to be able to sneak up unawares and frighten the bejesus out
    of them.(illegally)

    One week after I fitted the Sebel to my ER5 it saved my bacon - a YL
    chatting on a mobile decided to change lane without even looking out of
    her window - never mind in her mirror - leaving me with nowhere to go
    (except for into oncoming traffic). One blast from the Sebel was enough
    to send her skittering across her lane and almost into the next one
    <insert smug feeling here>.

    Would not be without one now.

    BTW - would not use it as a "greeting" - left my original "meep meep"
    horn wired in. A quick touch on the button gives a "meep". A longer
    press shakes the earth.

    I bought one a couple of years ago but couldn't find a place to fit it
    on the Norge, so it's now on the ute.

    So how did that give the Norge a louder horn? :)

  18. I ordered one a few weeks ago and I am thoroughly looking forward to
    scaring the shit out of cars with it.

    I found a pair of old twin-tone horns off my T3 in the shed. They
    still work fine.

    I particularly disliked the delay between pressing the button and
    sound coming from the Stebel. I really would like to have the Marchall
    brass trumpet horns I had on the T3. The reacted far quicker and made
    a lot more noise than the Stebel. Like a really lot of noise. But
    then, they cost a fortune at the time. As I recall $70-$80 in 1977-8.

    I've had stebel airhorns on my past few bikes and none have had what I
    would consider to be a delay worth worrying about... no more than a
    fraction of a second... and any delay is well offset by the positive
    reaction to the noise. Having an absolutely instataneous pissly OEM
    electric horn is no benefit if the target of your noise pays it no
