I have found that there is plenty of room behind the front middle cowl. On the Goldwings Honda used to put the big old fashioned ABS modulators in there
This is were I put the 2 large 118db horns. BEEEEP!!!

I'm actually very pleased with the stock horn. Sounds like an old Buick. Of course there is always louder, but it's still louder than most bikes and import cars.

To be clear, I did not disconnect the stock horns. All 4 blast when the button is pushed. I run the new horns off of a separate relay so the stock horn circuit is not over loaded.
Sounds like a jazz quartet from ****>:D>:D>:D>:D

"i love this horn, it is very loud on my 2017 model"


Is this a mistake, I didn't think Honda made them in 2017. I thought that the last production year was 2015. I could be wrong, and often am, but please let me know. I would love fro them to still be in production then there might be more aftermarket products.


I also love the large car horn they wedged in there. First time I used it I looked around for a Ram Truck. It was just me.

Also the lower LED spot lights flash at a rate of 9hz when the horns are used [ added relay and flasher control board ]

Can you do a write up on how you did this, including the relay? I hardly ever use my horn but there have been a couple times I wanted someone to wake the F up.

2017 Valkyrie in Austrailia

Awesome! Congrates on the new bike, 2017. I also just got a new bike a 2014 Valkyrie, new out of the crate. Is there a difference? I am happy they are still being made and sold somewhere, in hopes of more of an aftermarket.


Australia that is sooo cool. I hope you are having as much fun as I am. Love the bike. The power is incredible. Enjoy your new 2017 Valkyrie, again awesome, and be well.

Does it require Tank removal to access the "plenty of room behind the front middle cowl."?

I had my Triumph with the Stebel/wolo horn-Harbor freight, sitting side by side the Valk
and fired both horns off at the same time,,WOW!! Sounded like a freight train. Put a big smile on my face. I really want to install this horn on the Valk if I can find a place to mount it...
Any help would be appreciated....

Big horns

The horns do fit well behind the front middle cowl. They do not rub or vibrate against anything. The bolts that hold the ignition coil bracket to the frame are the mounting points. Removal of the middle and lower front cowls, the two left side covers, and the seat. Fuel tank removal is not needed. Use a basic relay circuit to connect them to the main horns. Be sure that any added power wires are properly fused! Cut slots or holes in the middle cowl that alien with the horns.

Thanks, the pics help a lot!
I am assuming that the removal of the two left side covers, and the seat
are for running wires?

What horns did you end up using?

Remove the panel that has the fog light switch and fuel door release. This will help in routing wires for various accessory projects.
