What are some of your experiences with louder horn for the BV 350. I am thinking about the Stebel 11690019 - Nautilus Compact Mini Air Horn Black

I've put Fiamm Freeway Blasters in my BV350 and other scooters. They're easier to mount, I think, than a Nautilus. Haven't compared them side by side, but the Freeway Blasters are pretty loud.

In place of the original horn. It fits if you wiggle it into place just right.

what hap'd to the days of going to the junkyard to find giant $5 horns from GM cars and throwing them onto motorcycles?

-signed, guy who doesn't want to buy $20 horn, but really needs a big arse horn.

Just buy two cheap red two tone car horns and squeeze them in somewhere. The idea is to sound like a bus not a scooter.

The stock horn in the BV is very quiet.
On other scooters I've added a second horn and this has worked well. On the BV, a Stebel works well.

I bought the $9.00 pair from Harbor Freight and mounted them in the kids 650 R. They come with a relay and a couple brackets and are as loud as the Freeway Blasters on my Guzzi...just smaller

A quick update, I bought a PIAA 76501 500Hz Slim Line Sports Horn, same horn I have in my 2015 GTS 300. It fits in place of the OEM horn in both bikes. Itís not as loud as other horns but it works for me. Hope that helps...
