Replacement horn?

The horn on my new to me '09 KLR is rather anemic, you can barely hear it over the engine. When I pulled the tank and front plastic to install crash bars over the weekend I checked the wiring and it is OK and there is no adjuster on the horn. Anybody have suggestions for a louder aftermarket horn? I would prefer something that fits in the place of the existing horn without a lot of modifications.

Did the mounting bracket come with it or did you fabricate it?

Personal design & fabrication is very satisfying. Ya ! I did it all by my little self. Skinned knuckles, and all.

I though mine was bad and it was a low voltage issue due to heated gear using up all the amps.

Could also just be dirty inside.

Might check.
