I definitely want an upgraded horn but these are around $45 on amazon..and you have to buy a wiring harness separate..another $10-$20....I would like to know if these fit where the stock horn bracket is also...I have heard stories of others having to make room somewhere else on their motorcycles because these were just too big and bulky to fit in the same place where the stocks do....I dont see where else it could possibly go on the 250R..there is no room anywhere else on it that I can see...

So keep us informed on the install
....and anyone that has a similar one, tell us about your install w/pics if possible

EDIT: Ordered this today..$15 total...its the low tone horn...just putting one of these horns on you dont need a relay or new wiring..basically all I will have to do is unplug the stock horn, maybe switch mounting brackets and then plug in the FIAMM...done
......for two of them , High/low tone, you would need a wiring harness and relay because of the amp draw

The sound in this short clip doesn't do it justice..its at least twice as loud if not 3 times louder than the stock...I couldn't beep it much in the video because it's so loud, I didn't want to disturb my neighbors..not bad for $15 total..it was as simple as loosening nut,unplugging stock,plugging FIAA into existing wires and tightening one nut...done

installed low tone fiamm horn [$17 fm amazon to aust incl shipping]
using spanner fm toolkit [plus plyers to slightly bend stock bracket]..
had to worm fingers up to slightly release wire to horn, plus bend
contacts of horn upwards to connections and with horn downwards..
took 15 mins on the street.. used stock spring washer to new horn..
new horn is louder, but not offensive.. nice strong lower tone,
from 'beep beep' to 'burp burp', like a large car or small truck..

very happy with this horn based on low price, no fuss install
[virtually replacement] extra sound power plus nice note..

only slight bending of stock bracket in situ gives tight
fit, just touching rim of fairing side panel, so inserted
soft rubber between horn and fairing.. seems secure
and probably adequately insulated fm vibration..

[if you have workspace etc, recommend removing tank
and fairing side panel, plus design and bend stock bracket
with vice etc, for access to wiring harness and tidy job]..

for a rough but quick replacement tho, this was easy,
giving a better louder horn, for $17 all up :)
