Horn replacement

Replaced the stock horn on my GSX650F with a set of PIAA horns 500/600

I've been thinking of doing the same, my horn is pretty weak. Weak to the point that I wouldn't use it over 45 mph.

I like the PIAA and it has good reviews. Supposedly 115db. My 7 yo daughter in the video said her ears hurt after pushing the button for the "after" video. Plus they are lightweight. I mounted them on the bolts which hold the stalk for my front turn indicators.

Based on what I read on the web, it seems that the louder horns have a high failure rate when used on motorcycles.
