I want to replace the horn on my Ulysses. Let me know if you have any recommendations, specifically something that will fit under the windscreen. Thanks.

Harbor freight dual tone air horn fits under there. Wolo Bad Boy! $37.99 before discounts.



I had one on my Uly for near 42,000 miles and I have one cut apart on Lil Red for about 15,000 miles so far.

I use the leads to the Buell horn to trigger the relay for the air horn. I run a separate set of power wires from the battery through the relay.

On Lil Red I mounted the compressor under the air box cover. Ran the air through a clear hose to the horn part under the fly screen. The Uly has plenty of room under it's fly screen for the whole unit.
NOTE: You really do need to run dedicated power from the battery through a relay for horns that are louder than stock, if you want all the sound they are able to deliver.

Iíve got a Fiamm Freeway Blaster, 133 db, replacing the stock horn. Mounts in the same place as stock, with a little trimming. No relay is needed. I accidentally hit the button once, and scared myself! Easy, and loud enough for me. Cost under $20.
