    I have a 07 KTM 950 SE and the stock horn is a joke. Does anybody have suggestions for a loud horn that will fit into the factory horn location?

    Make sure the plastic surround isn't rubbing on the horns diaphram.

    a car horn might fit, but it will not be SO much better.

    I had put up with the same excuse of a horn on my 900 Diversion for years and after a couple of near misses I decided enough was enough. The problem was finding a decent horn that would fit easy and not cost a fortune.I found one on Amazon..well a pack of 2 but I only used one. They work far better and only cost £6.72.

    Air horn set 12v dual tone

    hope that helps.

    I fit two Fiamm horns under the mask of my Adventure. The SE is a different challenge all together. Good luck.

    I mounted a Hella between the forks using the straps that came with and the high fender mount holes. You have to do a little bending to make sure the fender doesnt hit at full fork compression. It's not as loud as the hella twotone on my Impreza, but way better than the stock POS.

    The problem with the SE is finding a location with enough space where you can mount a decent air horn.

    I have to potential locations:
    - above the rear cylinder behind the air box, where the SAS valve used to be (only if you removed the SAS system)
    - on one of the cross bars of the raiddesigns rallye kit (only if you have the kit and enough spare room)

    Both options still need evaluation if an air horn like the stebel nautilus will actually fit there.

    The stock electrical horn sounds like a farting duck.
