Anybody have a creative & successful idea on relocating, replacing, altering, or after-market'ing to solve the issue of those hideous horns that clutter the otherwise beautiful front end of our SCs?

Pictures and details are appreciated!

Thanks!

the Voxbell Hi/Lo combo is to be found on both of my Moto Guzzis,
they sound really awesome, unlike a motorcycle, more like a big car.

:cool:

I moved one of my horns and hid it behind the oil cooler. I mounted it on the oil cooler mount. The other horn is in my forever growing box of stock parts. Here are a couple of pics.

Alright Muschi, I've read the previous posts and thought the Stebel Nautilus was the ultimate horn...what is this Voxbell Hi/Lo you speak of? (Yes. That is a preposition on the end of that last sentence)

;)

I have the velocity stack intakes (no airbox) so I picked up a hella supertone and just tucked it up under the edge of the tank. Stock horns are gone.

school is so long ago, I forgot what a preposition was, but please don't tell me anyways.

the Voxbell horns are to be found in the Link that member SYMO has posted
within his answer to the original question, answer #2 in this thread.

they sound awesome but look like classic bike horns in chrome, my Guzzis
do not have an oil cooler, they proudly display these beautiful horns instead.

I removed the stock horns and mounted a pair of Fiamm's behind the 'battery' covers on my GT. I know I posted some pictures of this but can't find them right now. Cleans up the front and they can still be heard!

Thanks Muschi:)

I looked them up and they look very cool. I like the fact it's a hi/Lo system and not the 'road runner'-sounding "beep beep" SC stockers. Of course, the Stebel Nautilus is also very nice, barring any reliability problems.

Thanks again,

Are these plug and play on our SCs?

Voxbell 12v Hi/Lo Horn Set
I suspect that they have to have their own a relay-controlled circuit because of their higher current draw than the feeble OEM horns. Does anybody know if a relay comes with the dual Voxbell horn set?

Opps! Seems that I never did post any pictures of where / how I mounted the horns. I'll get out probably tomorrow, and post up a couple for ya, OK?

I found a pair of Voxbell horns from the seventies in their original packing the other week, way cool IMO.

:cool:

Avvisatore acustico bitonale / two tone double horns

:cool: ;)


they are huge, about 9cm in diameter, and heavy as well,
please see pictured one way lighter for size comparison.

there are no relays off any kind on older Guzzis, but relays are a good thing for sure,
there are no relays supplied with the Voxbell set IMO, any relay will do, the
horn knob would survive the current draw anyways IMO, without relay that is.

they do not sound like a road runner beep beep but like a honk you would
expect from a big fifties car, something like "Hhhhhwooonnnnnkkkk".

the best american expression for horns on a bike that I heard so far is
"second line of defence", I do not remember the first line at this time.

check eastern beaver; they make a very nice relay kit for dual or single horns.
