i am on my 3rd horn. so far it sounds the best and it is a stock harley horn. it is cumbursome in relation to the stock honda item though. i am curious as to further responses to this subject as so far i am not completely satisfied. as a note, my friend's '01 road star has a horn that sounds like a big car horn. i am not sure (nor is he) if this is a stock item. good luck to us all!
