Didn't actually put mine in the trash, but it's not on my bike either. The only time I could hear it is if I was sitting idling. On the road, it was completely useless, considering motor/exhaust volumes. I still have the left side horn, so that I am technically legal.
Yes, left side horn is under the bike, near the front pulley. I believe they operate at different pitches, in the interest of being audible to more people. But, like many have said, I couldn't hear either of them when rolling. Have to have a horn to be street legal in AZ, so the left one is good enough as far as that goes.
Alright, knowing that I think I'll remove mine too. I think here in Minnesota you legally need a horn too, but honestly I'd really be surprised if a cop actually checked it. But the right side horn is kind of an eyesore. So I might just take it off given I can find a place to hide the wires. I don't want a connector just hanging there, and I don't know if I can bring myself to cut it off. I have to take a closer look at it before I make any final decisions.
It's kind of a cheese *** horn anyway. I don't think I've ever used it in traffic
the stock horns suck!! plain and simple. but i dont think you should be without a horn so i installed some super loud electrics for the cager who is just not paying attention. one of them is in the stock location near the kick stand and the other is in the speed star scoop on the right. i had to trim some plastic on the black piece that mounts to the bike, installed a mounting strap to bolt the horn to and then the chrome cover fits right on, you would never know i have the horn inside there
I saw a bike like that yesterday...don't know who's it is. Yammi shop here in SW Michigan. Nice purple custom paint, 260 kit with all chrome swing arm, rims, hub, pulley, etc. very nice looking warrior. What caught my eye was the right side of the bike. He put the right side horn and his rear brake oil reservoir inside his S* air cleaner cover (shell only...he had installed a Barons' BAK).
Wish I knew who's bike it is...he wasn't there, the shop mechanic was showing it to me. The owner had brought it in to have pistons and springs installed.
