    I'm looking for a stebel magnum as a plug n play in place of my stock horn on a Tiger 800.
    Does anyone know of an online source either in Canada or the US?

    That's what I have a Hi Fiamm, much louder than the stock BMW. If I can find room I'll also install a Lo. But note that installing a dual horn setup and it may need a relay for power from the battery with large(r) wiring. Had to do that on the old GS, BMW wiring did not bring in enough electrical juice.

    If I can't hear my horn (R1200 GSA) rolling down the highway @ 70mph, can others hear it?:ear

    As a general note: Stebel horns are loud, but they have both a high rate of crib death and a strangely short life. Wolo buys some of their horns from the same manufacturer.


    Nope. The Web Bike World horn page (here for the curious) has a lovely comparison of several horns, including FIAMM, Hella and a few Stebel models. The Hella Supertones were found to be the loudest, with the least variance from the claimed sound level. I wish they'd update that page with some newer models, though.

    I also wish I could figure out how to mount a pair of Supertone horns on my V-Star. I've had to use the horn exactly once in anger, and it sounded like the Roadrunner with a cold. :huh

    Picked up the Fiamm high tone from Princess Auto, didn't mind paying the regular price for peace of mind. Easy plug & play fit. So much louder than my Tiger's stock. :D
