And what comfort level for modifications? Minimal changes? Sky is the limit?

Fiamm Freeway Blasters. Get both the high and low tone, You'll sound like a big-ass Buick. Amazon or NAPA for under $30

Or confuse people and get an air horn, Stebel is no longer super expensive, just be sure to get a wiring harness with relay or you'll risk burning out the horn button.

I wound up using two Low tone blasters and it's nice and loud. All stock motorcycle horns are wimpy crap.

If loud pipes save lives, imagine what learning to ride might accomplish.

I got PIAA Slim Line dual horns. Can go in without additional wiring/relay and is a significant improvement over the stock mouse fart horn.

Same here...... but he may need to run additional wires if bike is a 1 horn unit. My 2007 was dual horns but '13 was single.
Easy task to run the additional wires on the '13.... but still a thing to do.

Seems FJR video dude covered it once ??

Agree with the PIAAs. They draw a bit less power than two Series II horns (I measured) and they do not require a relay.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

Maybe i will just go with 1 PIAA horn if there is no better option. I don't want to get into relays.
Those horns are expensive. But if there are no other options I will get the single one.
