Here's a good article about horn replacement - made even better by the fact that they used a Gold Wing as a model! LOL

I did that way back on my 78....
I got the horns from a 75 F150 truck,added the relay and really annoyed the vehicle inspector when he had me blow the horn. :shock:
He was standing right at the front wheel......
I did suggest that he move away a bit...but Nooooo.....just blow the horn he said. :lol:
To this day,he won't inspect my bikes anymore.

I did exactly this on my GL1100, putting a set of FIAMM Freeway Blasters in. I put one of those same horns on my wife's Virago (also with a relay), and again on my GL1500, which had the stock factory horns disconnected in favor of air horns. I left the air horns installed, but added a relay, and reconnected the factory horns, so they all three go at the same time. It's very loud. I'm about to repeat this procedure on my wife's PC800.

Yes, very good info, have also made a note to myself, to upgrade the horns on the 75 as I am redoing it. Thanks for that link.
