Hadn't heard of that one before, but I'm a big believer in loud horns! Beats loud pipes any day, IMO. I have a Stebel Nautilus on two bikes, just love them

Wolo Bad Boy is basically the same thing as the Stebel Nautilus. Can't remember which one I had, but it was great until the compressor stopped wanting to spin up right away.

Those are awesome horns!
Make sure it doesn't contact the fender under full compression.

Morgstang:
This is your lucky day !!! I have the exact front fender for your FZ1. It has the Yamaha factory red metallic paint; high gloss; guaranteed to color match. Also, the price is unbelievably low.

Now I need to tell you, even though the photo will most likely not show it, however there is one small blemish on top of the fender. Otherwise it is like new.

I got it from a super nice guy, as part of a package deal. Apparently he had a horn that somehow got bent downward and blemished the fender. Let me know if you are interested.

Morgstang:

Well shazam! The horn on that bike has also been bent downward. The normal position is for the horn to slope upward, perpendicular to the forks.

This thing with the horn clearance to the front fender must be a unique FZ1 anomaly. And why would the bracket that holds the horn, just suddenly bend downward. Mysterious.

I couldn't see anything else wrong with the bike in the photo, other than the position of the horn.

I also used to have the Nautilus until it die. I put mine on the side and it was not really protected from the rain. I think that's what kill mine.

It will fit in front of your battery, under the tank, if you prefer a cleaner look.

I've rocked the Nautilus on every bike ive owned for years.

Funniest thing I ever used my horn for: Leaving my neighbor hood and see a lady riding a Harley. I wave at her as she is passing through the intersection. She literally turns her head the opposite way and cruises by. Little did she know I was going the direction. So I caught up to her a couple lights down the road. She is in the center lane, I'm in the right turn lane. As soon as I get my chance I start rolling past her and lay on my horn and scare the out of her. I waved again as I'm laughing my off, made my right turn and Shuhboogie'd down the road.
