MotoHorn User Manual

Before the installation

  1. Please install Dual Track MotoHorn™ following these instructions.
  2. Power off your motorcycle before the installation.
  3. IMPORTANT! To get the loudest results, your stock horn wiring should support 10A of current. It should be minimum 18 American Wire Gauge (AWG) thick. If the stock wiring is too thin, please follow our relay and 16 AWG wire installation method — some additional 16 AWG wire and a relay is then needed.
  4. In order to avoid wiring related problems, use wire and pin terminal connectors or solder wire connectors.
  5. Keep the horns away from direct contact with the engine and other components that produce a lot of heat.
  6. TIP: Keep your stock horn and Dual Track MotoHorn™ both under the stock horn button to use them simultaneously for even better multi-tone effects. For this, we recommend following our relay and 16 AWG wire installation method.

How to install, basics

  1. Bolt the horns to the desired mounting spot, either separately or together.
  2. Do the wiring. There are 2 ways to do the electrical wiring, explained below. Positive and negative terminals on the 400 Hz and 500 Hz horns are interchangeable, you can connect them both ways.
  3. Enjoy your loud Dual Track MotoHorn™.

Connecting Dual Track MotoHorn™ directly to the existing horn wiring

If your stock horn wiring is not at least 18 AWG thick, you should only wire these horns by following the relay and 16 AWG wire installation method.

 

Using the 4 wire connectors to connect the horn to your stock wiring:

  1. Find the existing horn wires and connect the positive wire to one of the pins on the 400 Hz horn and on the 500 Hz horn. Both horns should now have 1 unused pin.
  2. Connect the existing horn negative wire to the second pin on the 400 Hz horn and on the 500 Hz horn. You can also take the negative from the battery “-” or from the motorcycle frame.

Test the loudness and performance: Your Dual Track MotoHorn™ should be noticeably louder than your stock horn. It should also work at all times when the horn button is pressed down.

 

Your Dual Track MotoHorn™ can now be activated via the stock horn button. Installation complete.

 

Connecting Dual Track MotoHorn™ using a relay and 16 AWG wire method

We recommend using the relay method explained below to get the loudest results — often the stock motorcycle horn wiring is too thin for 10A of current.

Relay is basically a magnetic switch that is installed on new 16 gauge main circuit, it allows you to use thin stock wiring to activate this circuit.

 

Recommended parts: 16 gauge wire, 10-40A 4 or 5 pin relay, 15-20A inline fuse, and some crimp terminal connectors so that you can easily plug it to the relay pins. You can get all of these from any automotive store.

 

Using a 15-20A 4 or 5 pin relay. This connection uses a relay to engage the main 16 gauge wiring.

Relay pins are universal and have the same number markings. If you are using a 5 pin relay, pin number 87a can be left blank:

  1. Use 16 AWG wire: Wire power from battery “+” to pin number 30. Also install 15-20A fuse closer to the battery on this same wire for safety reasons.
  2. Use 16 AWG wire: Wire pin number 87 to one of the pins on the 400 Hz horn and on the 500 Hz horn.
  3. Use 16 AWG wire: Wire the empty pin on the 400 Hz horn and on the 500 Hz horn to ground from motorcycle frame. You can also wire them to the battery “-”.

Your main 16 AWG wiring is now done. Now your relay needs to be activated by the stock horn wire. You can use any wire size:

  1. Find your stock horn positive wire or your stock horn button positive wire. Connect it to pin 86.

    Common mistake happens here:
    When taking positive from your stock horn button, make sure you take it from the side that isn’t constantly under the positive current. Otherwise your horn and relay would be always on.

    TIP: Keep your stock horn in the system and run them both simultaneously for best multi-tone effects.

  2. Ground your relay pin 85 to motorcycle frame or wire it to the battery “-”.

Your Dual Track MotoHorn™ can now be activated via the stock horn button. Installation complete.

 

Here is a link to a YouTube video that explains the relay and connections to it really well, this video is not ours:

Connecting 2+ Dual Track MotoHorns™

For extreme loudness, you can cover multiple motorcycle sides with Dual Track MotoHorns™. For main wiring, wire each horn separately with their own 16 AWG wire and a relay. To control all of these horns under the same button, connect every relay’s pin 86 to the same positive stock horn or stock horn button wire.

Common mistake happens here: Don’t split the 16 gauge wire between the horn sets. Each Dual Track MotoHorn™ set needs its own 16 gauge wire for 10A of current. If you are installing 2 sets, then you should have 2 separate 16 gauge wires coming from the battery “+”.

 

Attention!

If your stock horn wiring is not at least 18 AWG thick, you should only wire these horns by following the relay and 16 AWG wire installation method. Otherwise you risk having blown fuses, loss of performance and even potential fire hazard.

 

Problem description: Dual Track MotoHorn™ works only once and you have to restart the motorcycle for it to work again.

Solution: Your stock horn wiring is too thin, please follow the relay and 16 AWG wire installation method.

Problem description: Dual Track MotoHorn™ is not working at all or is not louder than your stock horn.

Solution: Test it straight on a battery with some 16 gauge wire to see if it works. If it works and is louder, then please follow the relay and 16 AWG wire installation method.
