$643 right now, and German pricing always includes 19% sales tax. Nevertheless, price was one of the reasons I wasn't interested in the Zard. I also found it ugly.

I paid $260 for the Fuel exhaust, including shipping from England.

Did anybody replace that flimsy OEM horn with something more attention grabbing?

Somehow I feel embarrassed when I use the OEM horn and hear my wife over the intercom just say "meow meow - little baby tiger wants to get your attention, please look down and don't step on me" ...

Sterbel Nautilus. Mine's mounted split from the compressor. Sounder lives in the tail next to the indicator relay and the compressor lives forward of the cross spar in the pillion underseat storage.

Cheers
On my Scram, I straightened out the bracket and mounted it on the mirror clamp.


Now, on the 800, I've put it on the end of the Renthal cross brace.

Wow. Both seem like total overkill to me but they'll certainly get attention ...

I was more looking for a simple replacement of the OEM horn. Just a drop in thing.

Check out the Wolo line. They are available on the shelf at many auto parts stores. Quite a variety of sizes, shapes and tones to choose from.

I've read the same, but I can't find them anywhere. Even the UK shops don't seem to have it anymore. Bummer.

They have a packet of two for the RT as the only one remaining. Add to that shipping to the US and becomes a bit over the head for getting a louder horn.

I'll see what I can find here locally. Maybe I can even find something in one of the Auto part stores.

I mounted off of the clutch perch clamp bolt. I hope you get more life out of your controller than I did. I didn't even get a season out of mine. I broke down and got a heat troller controller so I wouldn't have to pull the tank and change out the oxford stuff again in the future.
