 I own a 2017 Roadmaster and, while I love it just as I picked it up, I hated the sound of the stock horn. I felt that an expensive bike like the Roadmaster should have a pleasant sounding blended note that is only achieved by 2 horns.
I have seen posts here where other riders have installed trumpet style or air horns. But I'm wondering if there are others here who would just appreciate a pleasant sounding horn as much as I without adding the large trumpet style?
I found a set of snail horns at a local Princess Auto that I have fitted, used a relay to connect to the existing horn connector and now have the rich sound I think the bike should have been originally built with. My opinion of course.

Agree with you. Twin horns ALWAYS sound nicer than a single horn. 

I like the idea of doing this too. Simply and inexpensive. The air horns are very expensive.

I am working on trying to get a sound clip up here. But it won't let me upload a Mp4 file, so I am trying to find a converter and a file that will work.

They are Fiamm horns, the kit had 2 horns, brackets (which I had to bend for my purpose) and the relay in the kit for $12.00 CAD.
The original horn is a Seger brand from Turkey.

Interesting, what I am not so keen on with the air horns is
a. you have to have a compressor and
b. they have a bit of a delay from the time you press the button to the time they sound off.

This sounds (no pun intended) like a much better solution.

Can anyone please tell me how to post a sound bite to here? I can't seem to find a file format that will upload.

In the meantime, just in case some of you may be interested in trying this, I added some more detail on what I did to connect the new horns; otherwise, I hope it is at the least a partially interesting read.

Since the VCM is controlling the circuit to the horn, I decided to install a relay in place of the original horn to keep from potentially overloading the module.
To connect the relay I bought a connector and terminals to fit the existing horn connector. I also installed connectors in an unused section of the fuse panel to supply fused battery power through the relay to the newly installed horns. ( This is my schematic pdf horn schem indian.pdf     [wink]

This description is in part from the service manual describing the horn circuit operation.
(The horn uses a load-sensing circuit for diagnostic purposes. The VCM sends a 12V pull-up voltage to the horn through the WH wire.
The horn circuit is a Normally Open circuit, so depressing the horn switch provides the VCM a path to ground. The VCM responds by sending 12V to the horn making it sound.)

The connector # is 15300002 & terminals # 12048159, the terminals I used in the fuse panel were #12084201. I ordered mine from https://www.mouser.ca/, but there may be a more local supplier for where you reside. ( http://www.crimpsupply.com & http://www.electerm.com are some others sources)

Audio files are same as video files.  It has to be uploaded somewhere else place a link to it in your post.

A quick search found some reasonably negative reviews regarding longevity. But the vids on YouTube sound alright for its size!
