Jerry over at Pirates Lair is now selling one that could shatter glass. Which means you might be able to get the attention of a cager on a cell phone.

Thanks, guys...I've heard a lot about the Stebel Nautilus Compact Dual-Tone 12-Volt Air Horn, 139 dB - Black. They even have a live demonstration on "you tube" at the following link:

The only issue with these horns is trying to fit them in that compact spacing between the forks...

I'm having a Stebel Nautilus installed next weekend. I bought it from CASportTouring.com for about $35.

 

My brother had one installed on his K1200GT. it is earsplitting. Sounds like a freight train!

 

I'll post an update once it's installed.

+1 Stebel Nautilus

 

The horn was the first thing I changed when I got my 1100RT. Bought mine through Amazon. Did the install myself. Pretty straight forward. About an hour job (most of which was me taking off tupperware for the first time).

Not a problem for 20K miles.

 

www.adventurersworkshop.com sells them and an installation kit. I made my own kit.

It will fit. I did the exact same thing as Jim shows.

In case the fit IS too tight....you can seperate the horn piece from the motor aide......and just run a hose between the two pieces. You'll need an adaptor (check with your local hardware store) to hook the hose to on the horn end.

Irv Seaver installed the Stebel Nautilus yesterday on my R1200GS. They charged me 1.5 hours in labor + $20 in miscellaneous wires, connectors, etc. If you are considering purchasing the Stebel, I'd recommend NOT buying the wiring kit they also sell, as it is cheaper to let the dealer wire it up (if a dealer is going to do the work, that is).

 

The GS sounds like a freight train now. I have never relied on the horn much anyway, but I like knowing that if I need it, it'll be heard and heard good!
