Replacement horns for GL1200A
I'd like to replace my oem horns with something louder. Found some at Advance auto parts. Is there any problem just connecting these to the original wiring or will I need to add a fuse or possibly a relay?

Probably a relay would do the trick, some of the horns take quite a current to operate.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

Thanks Tricky, I went ahead and used a 4 terminal universal relay and added a 10 amp inline fuse. they are about 3 times as loud as the stock horns ,real attention getters.

I have a set of air horns and anything less than a 20amp will blow, I guess having to have a compressor to pump the air out is the difference.
Good you got the job done.

I know 10 amp is pretty low, I used 14 gauge wire so if needed I can always up the fuse amps. Just wanted to make sure there won't be a problem.

Bob, can you post some pictures showing the horns you bought?

I went to local junk yard and found a set of small car horns and replaced the Honda horns useing the same wire. Have had no problem, works fine and much louder.
