Does anyone know if you can use the existing wiring and button for those ''BEEP BEEP'' horns on a1200 to power an air horn :?:

Not likely. The factory wiring wasn't even enough to run the pair of FIAMM horns I put on my bike. I had to put a relay in, and have the relay switch a fused line from the battery. It works well though, and isn't that hard to do.

I put a set of FIAMM "Freeway Blaster" horns - one model 72112 and one model 72122 (high note and low note). They are extremely loud!

I did not use the relay that came with thee all in one Bad Boy horn and it work fine, I did keep the relay just in case I needed it.
PS Make sure you mount horn pointing down not up. I started getting odd sounds and then it quit working, had a really d=good laugh when I was checking it and found it full of water. Dumper water turned them down not up and they are fine. :lol:
