The horn on my 96 vulcan 1500L was sounding pretty pathetic. Very weak and you couldn't hardly hear it. So I took it off to see if a bug had built a nest in it or something but they hadnt. Put it back on and now nothing. The fuse is fine, and getting juice to the horn, I tested with volt meter. So anybody have any suggestions for this horn, or for a cooler after market horn. I would rather not mess with compressors for air horns. Thanks for the replies. :D

sounds like the horn has died. i've looked at after market horn sets for my car. i don't know if you'd have the room for them (compressor or electric). just swing down to a auto parts store. you should be able to replace it for $10-$15

I had the same problem....On the back of my horns (dual) there is a little screw that you can turn in or out and this will change the volume and tone a little but it will get you by in a pinch....I thought it was just cause my bike is old and they were worn out but now You can hear the horn over my Vance & Hines at 8000 RPM.

Good luck

replace it with a 12volt marine horn-you can get some really nice ones
that are stainless steel and very small and loud as hell! :wink:

mine was dead when I got my bike. A few light taps with the plastic end of a screwdriver fixed it. I imagine this prolly only works on bikes that sit outside a few years with no use.
