Putting Horns on the Beast

I hated the wimpy "meep meep" of the stock beeper, so gave the beast the horns it derserves.

Hey...I didn't scratch it up. Fabrizio did...giving me the opportunity to fix it! Yeah, I've got the frame pretty much bondo'd up. Now I just need the time to get together with a friend of mine who knows a guy who knows something about paint and has a good airbrush.

Oh, and I haven't noticed any perma-whistle, but other drivers certainly know when I'm alerting them to my presence.

I remember some dude on the R6mn installed a big air horn on his R6... pretty funny for a little sportsbike to sound like a moster.

Personally, I ride my bikes without a horn, the throttle is a lot louder and more scary than the "meep meep" of motorcycle horns. instead, the horn button is for a garage door opener.

You mean you have it connected to the garage remote? That is something that's been going arround my head lately. Can you explain how you did it? Any pics?

Cheers.

I ordered one of their remote units: http://www.motofx.com/ and installed on my R6, I am sorry but the wires are thoroughly wrapped and taped with all the other wires behind the dash so the picture won't show much... but here is a review and installation report http://www.webbikeworld.com/t2/motofx/

If you know someone with electronic knowledge, they can show you how to wire connect your existing remote to do the same thing.
