Is there a simple drop in horn that is louder than stock? I searched the forum and found references to the Stebel upgrade but I want something that allows me to use the factory button.

Any help would be appreciated!

any horn can be wired into your factory button very easilly. just cut the wires off your old horn, rip that out of there, and solder on the new horn and mount it using the same wires. couldnt be easier.

just make sure u get one that hes its own compressor aka self contained. most are, but some large truck horns need their own air compressor

Is the power requirement the same or do you need to run an new wire to handle the current?

Oh that one, that should should be ok.. I was thinking more along the line of one of these when you said electric air horn haha..


I had a WoloBad Boy on my Honda Ruckus, I thought it was to high pitched though,,

Maybe by the time I write this someone will be formulating a good answer but wisemonkey1´s question remains unanswered, largely.

No offense to scooters, I truly love you and BTW have you seen the BMW "scooters"? ("It doesn´t matter what you ride, just that you RIDE!", I was told by a Harley gift shop employee one day :)).

But I too would like to see a good drop-in replacement to the same wiring. Which would be a BETTER horn. The loud horn is essential for me. Wiring mods and the like are not. We have a lot of rain and the last thing I want is our pot-holed roads and wet conditions (not to mention the regular cycle vibrations which the factory probably understands better than me) to cause a critical failure of my ham-handed "cut-stuff" mods. I´m a numbers guy who can turn a wrench but I am no mechanic.

Good question wisemonkey1.

the reason you use the extra wiring to make the stebel airhorn work is becuase the stock wiring wont handle the current. if you look thru ebay you can find stebel airhorns with wiring harness at a reasonable price.

pretty easy to wireup

waaat? no way, i wired one up to my scooter and it works flawlessly..
i got this one i think..
http://www.amazon.com/Wolo-Model-419-Bad-Horn/dp/B000F5DQWY

and my scooter batteryu is a bit smaller than the one on the ninja too. prob has less of a charging capacity too
that horn is a copy of the stebel nautilus compact as seen here

i have no doubt it need a relay fitted the same as my stebel airhorn,

mine needs the relay fitted for sure and seeing though the motor/compressor is the same on both units, i would also put a relay and extra wiring in to yours as well. Its not worth frying your wiring.

here is a link to the airhorn you posted a link to, but however has the relay on ebay

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Wolo-Bad...=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5d3877241c


the wiring is very easy to do, i think i have a link to it in my sig, if its not there, i will fix it now

if you read this pdf from the manufacturer
http://www.stebel.it/public/stebel.pdf

it says it draws 9 amps at 12 volts. this *DEFINITELY* needs a relay.i would be surprised if the stock one draws any more then 3 amps.
