Cool Louder Horn, Mack Truck?

Hey Fellow ST Riders,

I'm thoroughly enjoying my "new" used 2006 ST1300 during it's first summer with me in the Seattle area.

I'm looking at the front end of my first two week vacation in forever and will be out on some longer rides this entire coming week, but I have to say that I really don't like riding in the Seattle area. The traffic sucks, nobody knows how to drive and when they do so it's distractedly. It's more dangerous here than anywhere else I've ridden in my life.

So I want a louder horn! A "get out of my way, I'm here you ****ing idiot put down your phone and drive" louder horn!

I used to have a very loud Mack truck type horn on my RT. Does one exist for the ST? If not what do you guys recommend?

Thanks!
Mark

Train horn, if it would fit.

I put Fiamms on mine, both the low and high tones for a good vibrant sound. It has a LOT more authority than the stock meeper but not quite the punch of an air horn or fire engine shriller.

I have this one:

Wolo "bad boy" air horn. With a little bit of care, it'll mount in the same place as the original squeaker.

Fiamm 72112 Freeway Blaster - Low Note.

One of each and a relay will chase cars and birds back where they belong.
Mount in the stock location.

The one all the FJR guys like is a Stebel. I have no personal experience with them but those guys like them a lot.

I have a Stebel on my current ST1300. Works great.

Funny story - the previous owner didn't tell me he had installed the Stebel horn on the ST when I bought it. So, I startled the hell out of myself the first time I "tooted" the horn at my wife as I rode by.
