Horns

Hello to all! Asking for suggestions on "plug and play" horns to replace the stock horn my 2010A. I don't want to have to make any modifications/changes so I'm hoping someone has already done it and can help me. Thank you all in advanced!

PIAA Slimlines did the trick on my 2008A. Sounds like a Buick now rather than a little road runner.

Ditto. Complete plug and play, very straight forward.

You will have to make very slight mods to install the PIAA 85114 Slim Line. Upgrades from one horn to two. The 2nd needs a wire tapped off the 1st. Ideally what you need is a "piggyback quick-disconnect" terminal. That will provide plenty of hits on Amazon, but heck, you only need 1. I think I saw a small package at O'Reilly Autoparts last week but can't find it listed online.

The Slim Line PIAA is an improvement but is not knock-your-socks-off. Many can not hear.

PIAA Slimline for sure,

also pls go to: "FORUMS" (black pull down menu) then select "FJR The Farkling II" then click on "Search this forum" (black pull down menu) then search "PIAA horns" a few threads on these horns and how to connect etc

Another PIAA Slimline user. Simple install / swap from the stock horns on my 2007. Then swapped them to my 2013 when I got it.

At least in the USA, the gen III and newer models include just one OEM horn.

The latest guy to ask above has a 2010. It came from the factory with 2 horns. No mods required, true plug and play as I stated.
