    Thinking of putting air horn on my ultra so anyone with experiences with different brands which seem to be the best.

    I can't recommend a brand but whichever one you choose Make Sure you install a high current relay to turn the pump on. Some don't come with a relay. Don't go by what the manufacture of the kit says... Install a throw over relay along with a heavy power feed lead.

    Hoople is correct about the relay. If you don't use a relay the horn will work until the switch melts down. I use a Bad Boy.

    Mine is the Harley air horn but not sure who makes it. Bought it because it was on a clearance table for $70 one day.

    I think Fiamm makes the airhorns for HD and are well made, and should come with all the hardware including the mini compressor, plumbing, relay and wiring kit. I would go to your local HD dealer and have them print out the Service Note...which the savvy parts guy would do as they like "--add on sales" LOL!

    Get ready for the little kids to do the "big rig air horn arm wave" as you scoot by...

    Sorry, had to do it...;) Couldn't resist when I was young.
