Has anybody mounted a REAL horn on Z?

Unbelieveable that a fire-breather like the Z would have such a Mickey Mouse horn. If anybody has mounted a horn with some stones, please advice what kind and where you got it.
Thanks.
Phil

I've always wanted to mount a train horn on a bike. My buddy has one on his 68 caddy and its deafening. Only about the size of a big can of monster energy too, and runs off the battery.

That'd keep the cagers awake.

I would hate to put air horns on the bike. I find myself honking the horn when I try to start the bike because I'm used to my race quad with the starter button on the left side...

After about the fifth time of getting pushed up towards the sidewalk by some idiot texting in traffic, air horns sound like a great idea.

In cases like that I've always just used the exhaust. I forget I even have horns on my vehicles because I have never used them other than goofing off.

I mounted a wolo big boy horn. I like it much better. I attached the relay to the air box and mounted the horn on a mount I made for the left side of the bike. The stock location looked dumb with the bigger horn. I would do the mod again. I agree the stock horn is a joke.
