    I would imagine they use a standard automotive flasher module that you could replace. Autozone, Napa, or any other automotive parts store should be able to help you.

    You mean it's the flasher module that's making that noise?

    Find the flasher relay and wrap it in foam and or duct tape until the sound becomes soothing to your delicate ears.

    Remove the horncase by unscrewing the two screws inisde the glovebox and the one screw behind the "Genuine" logo at the top of the horncase. You can remove the logo by gently prying it out from the right with a thin screwdriver.

    The flasher buzzer is located at the bottom - follow your ears. Pull the purple wire and tape it off to prevent a short circuit. Screw everything back together and enjoy the quiet, but remember to cancel those flashers.

    Some of the guys on SS claim to tape a penny to it to muffle it.

    Which doesn't make sense to me. The penny would fall off somewhere in the horncast and then you'd get

    BEEP RATTLE BEEP RATTLE BEEP RATTLE BEEP RATTLE.

    I think the foam stuff would be a nice db-limiter. :lol3

    I don't know how many pedestrians I've scared back onto the curb with that thing beeping. People look around for the backing garbage truck.

    I tried that.

    I've got the loudest exhaust EVER and the damn beeping can heard above that, my earplugs, and helmet. :bluduh

    fWIW my Stella sounds like an open-class motocrosser. Okay, a 250. LOUD.
