Thanks
Oh yes there is!...Oh no there isn't!......Oh yes there is!..... Oh no there....Whoops, sorry guys. Forgot it's the pantomime season!

I think i might have to give this a shot, that way i won't have to worry about mud and water! Although i do like Deeg's mount, i might try make a bracket to mount the horn side-ways if putting it behind the headlight fails.


Thanks for all the imput! Ill let you know how i go with the re-location

Re: Horn re-location

Guys, the very first thing I did to my 570 when I brought it home was replace that pathetic horn. I wanted something that sounded like I hadn't stepped on a mouse's tail. As long as you're relocating the horn, I highly recommend replacing it with a low-note automotive horn.

Your right about the pathetic horn, My current horn is stuffed already due to mud and water. When i relocate the horn ill buy a better horn, I've seen some the same size but there much louder so i might give one of them a go. When you say a low-note automotive horn is that just the same as a car horn? I thought they were much bigger in size


Thanks.

Re: Horn re-location

Yup, a car horn. Same diameter as the factory diaphragm horn, but deeper. I hung mine in the factory stock location, and it required bending the facory bracket just a little bit. Now my thumper goes "honk" instead of "eeeeeeep."

Where is this hole? I can't seem to find it? Did you re-use the original bracket?

@ Pegscrapper how did you mount your horn behind the headlight?


Thanks

This mod works if you change the horn to one with guard over the driver cone/diaphragm. The stock horn has an exposed cone and i couldn't stop it hitting the light mask, which muted the sound. I used another horn, with a grill over the cone, and mounted it on an extension, M6 male to M5 female. Now it works well. Good spot to put it.
