Hi Trev,

I replaced my horns with twin trumpet style horns made by Fiamm which I believe were the original fitment. I don't have the sales receipt so I guess I bought them on Amazon or eBay.

The old horns did not work and when I took them off the bike and shook them they were full of water, so make sure you mount them so they're out of the rain under the fairing.

They are very loud!

Regards
Philip
