I ride a road king classic and want to change the ugly cow bell horn to something classic. I went to my local harley dealer and talked about retro-fitting a horn from a springer classic, the one that is on the front forks. It was too difficult for them to understand why I would not want a stock part on my bike. Can anyone give me any advise why this simple fit would not work? I don't want to spend $60 bucks in parts if it will not work. Safe riding and thanks, soca

Check this one out. This is what I have:

Al's Modifieds Horn Cover

I installed it on my bike and stuck a skull medallion on it. It looks like something that Harley should have made a long time ago...

I was thinking... on my Softail, I deleted the cowbell and put two Hella Compact Trumpet horns behind the transmission, in front of the back tire, where the vapor canister should be. The Hella horns are about the same diameter as the vapor canistor, so with some creative mounting, they fit very nicely in that space. I suspect that the same might work on the touring bikes (horn where canister goes)

I think I paid about $20 for the set (high and low note) online. These horns will wake the dead and are virtually invisible on my bike... sounds like a Caddy when I whack the horn button. Scared the crap outta me the firt time I tested them out in the garage!

They can be found in black as well as the red if you look around.


Also, your stock H-D horn is a Hella Compact Trumpet horn, low note, I think (it's stamped on horn body). Same horns are used on Hummers, last I noticed.


Make sure you use a relay (fused) if you add a second horn!
