Hi Everybody,
I want to relocate my horn from underneath the frame neck to between the cylinders. I have a 2000 XL883C. Does anyone have any favorites or suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help sent my way.

I have been thinking about picking up a takeoff from a soft tail to mount in the same spot. Should be able to mount it right off the choke (oh, excuse me, the enrichener knob...:roflblack:roflblack:roflblack) bracket....:geek:geek:geek

H-D has a relocation kit, a little pricey but very easy install and the new horn is WAY louder...

The STEBEL is highly recommended, and this is a great stickied thread about it:

I picked up the chrome cowbell off ebay, for cheap...it had the tab that extends above the bell, some don't, don't know how those mount. easy fit, had to add a little extension wire for the ground, no big thing. I agree, the big horn on the side sounds much better than the squeaker up front between the down-tubes. Save the old one and it's mounts in case you or the next owner wants to go back.

Good luck,
JR
