I had cause to use my horn the other evening whilst out on the 1000R

What a pathetic sound-it was like a moped, it doesn't grab anyone's attention and is therefore lethal

Has anyone changed to something louder??

Thanks in advance

Did it alert the other person to the danger? Or did they not hear it and end up in a bad situation?

There have been a few threads about the horn and various options for improvement, the search function will find them for you.

I’d recommend the Denali Sound Bomb, but there’s nowhere to fit something so large on the S1000R. I just put one on my GS and a myopic white van man gave me the first opportunity to try it out yesterday. It certainly delivered, I think wvm might have needed a change of underpants!

Thanks for asking-The offender didn't even hear the horn, they just carried on cutting me up, so the standard horn is judged to be junk

I will do the search option and see where that gets me

Thanks again
