You can also adjust them. So you might want to check that before you switch it out. There's a small adjustment screw on them that will change how it sounds a little bit. I switched out one one on a bike I was fixing and when I put it on no sound came out at all. I backed out the adjustment screw a bit and it worked fine...

my horn works for sh*t...i think I have a bad connection. I prefer to pull along side and kick in a quarter panel and then take off before the MF kills me

Stock one's pretty easy, but if you want different size after market (ie air horn), it can be a hectic.
I have an air horn on my SV and it's kinda mounted over radiator.

You probably want something like the Stebel horn. It is very popular with bikes and cheap (under 50$) and I know a few who have it. It is on my list for sure. However, you'll have to see if you have room or not. Some sportbikes may not have enough room.
