Are these based on a Stebel horn that lasts about a year?

Yes I think he uses the same horn, however I have one for about 2 years on my bike and its been fine. I think it has a lot to do with where you mount it and how much weather its exposed to. Mine lives under the front fairing and is out of the weather and road spray.

You can purchase it without the horn and use anyone you like.

Not according to his web site.

It could be a Wolo but they are all the same horn with different badges. Somewhere on the net someone took the different ones apart and the parts were interchangeable. So my guess is they all come out of the same factory and have a different brand stamped on them. Regardless the horn they are using is the same design as the Stebel. My horn is a Wolo....looks exactly like the Stebel.

If someone has empirical evidence to the contrary please post it.

According to their FAQs, it is an entirely different design from the Stebel:

Quote:
No - it's similar to a Stebel Nautilus but not the same. We noticed that the Stebel seems to have a fairly bad reputation for reliability according to online reviews – specifically they say that the plastic trumpet comes loose from the steel compressor motor and the horn ceases to function. We have sourced another brand that has the same small profile and is actually very similar but has a different method of combining the trumpet to the compressor, so avoids the design flaw that it appears the Stebel horn has. We have been testing this product and it has withstood all our rigorous vibration tests.

Look at the pictures....it looks exactly like a Stebel which looks exactly like a Wolo. The only difference, they mention is how the horn is mounted to the compressor. I believe you can separate the horn and the compressor and mount them separately on the Stebel you cannot on a Wolo...for what they are charging I'm guessing your not getting a specially designed titanium horn....

Banshee Horn


Wolo Horn


I'll post when I get mine as to which brand it is...

My guess its a de-badged Wolo

Fine, it's similar but not the same as the Stebel. Not having owned an air horn before, I took their FAQ answer of "it's similar to a Stebel Nautilus but not the same" to mean that their horn was "not a Stebel". Silly me.

You can purchase just the wiring harness, that's what I did. I've been using the same Stebel for years.

Subscribed, as I'm very interested to see how this works out in the real world. I've been a Stebel fan for years, and have never had one fail on me. I really like this concept....

By the way, the compressor needs to be installed vertically or it will fail. It warns of that right in the instructions that come with a Stebel (not sure of the Wolo branded one).
