wBW Motorcycle Horn Reviews Index
This page includes a listing of our motorcycle horn reviews and accessory reviews. Some of the reviews have decible ratings for the horns and there also a couple of motorcycle horn comparison reviews. Note that you may need a motorcycle horn wiring harness with a relay to get the most and “cleanest” power to your new horn and we have a couple of reviews of those also.
wBW Motorcycle Horn Reviews
A The Soundbomb horn has a variant that splits the compressor from the horn trumpets. It doesn’t necessarily make mounting any easier but it did help on the Versys 650. We found a unique location for both.
A new replacement for the Stebel Nautilus Compact with a loud 120 dB high-pitched sound. Can be difficult to mount but the results are worth it.
Mounting the Stebel Magnum horns on the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS is relatively easy and absolutely improves the sound of the ridiculously weak stock horn.
Oldie but goodie, this basic article shows you how to install a motorcycle horn relay wiring harness.
Is this for real? An old bicycle “ring-a-ding-ding” horn that mimics a modern air horn and has downloadable ring tones?
Here’s another more modern version on installing a motorcycle horn relay wiring harness.
Fitting a pair of horns to the BMW scooter wasn’t easy, but here’s how to do it, including using a dual horn wiring harness.
This detailed article compares the Hella Supertone; Fiamm Freeway Blasters; Stebel Magnum; Stebel Nautilus Max; and the Stebel Nautilus Compact motorcycle horns. Includes decibel ratings and comparisons.
Big honkin’ (pun!) “pancake” style horns have such an obnoxious sound, they will be heard by sleeping texting cagers!
One of the most popular accessory horns of all time is an all-around winner when it comes to volume.
Not quite the sound of the Freeway Blasterb but the Stebel Magnums have a nice tone that demands attention.
Huge self-contained air horn but with problems getting it to honk.
A more compact version of the Nautilus, also with quirks.
Yet another motorcycle horn comparison, this one compares stock horns to the Hella Supertones and a pair of basic Hella pancake horns.

Air Horn Notes: From “L.H.”: “I was reading through info on horns. I noticed that the add for Wolo 419 Bad Boy looks exactly like the Stebel compact air horn. Wolo seems to charge for a few decals and cosmetic alterations. In addition the advertisement’s instructions imply that you simply attach the wires from the original horn. That is misleading since a relay is needed and comes with the Stebel.”
