Sorry I can not help with the horn mounting and I don't know why some body has given you a -1 on this minor easy to make mistake
Send the moderator a message and he will delete the double post I expect.
I thought about that, but wanted the two-tone. I used to have a '66 Plymouth Fury, and this is as close as I'll get to that awesome horn.
you'll definately want to use a horn really with those Fiamms. They WILL fry the horn button. I had a set on a street bike years ago and they are awesome.Good Evening,
Hopefully this link works. These bad boys are LOUD. I bought the airhorn for a buddy's RZR and it's unbearable.....
Anyway, you could easily rig both horns up and EVERYONE will hear you.
By the way, for what it's worth, I'm for the loud horn. I'm looking for the instant 'jerk yer car back inta yer own lane dirtbag' reaction. He can look to see if it's a bike or car later, when I'm safely on my way!
Good Luck. I am mounting one each low tone on mine and Momma's TW's.

Yep, just have one horn connected for now and the relay plus some other goodies are in the mail. Shipping from Eastern Beaver is slow and the shipping price seems extortionate for what amounts to a bundle of wires in a padded envelope, but I'm patiently waiting.
Coming from an extreme novice...what are the steps we need to take to make a fiamm freeway blaster horn?
IIRC those Fiamm's draw over 4 amps each, Brock. Your stock horn draws slightly less than 2, Which is why Qwerty's warning about your horn button frying. If you tried to operate 8 or 9 amps on a circuit intended for 2 either the wires or the contacts would fry.
The way around it is to add a relay so that the horns operate more or less directly from the battery. Your horn button then only operates the relay coil, which draws negigibly.
The relay is basically a low amp draw switch that operates a much higher amp draw switch.
Your starter works the same way. Two little tiny wires and the tiny contacts in your starter button are all that's needed to operate the relay, which then joins two huge wires from the battery together to operate the starter.
