How the Kuryakyn WOLO Bad Boy Air Horn Could Save Your Life

How the Kuryakyn WOLO Bad Boy Air Horn Could Save Your Life

531413-freeway-traffic

Upgrading to an aftermarket motorcycle horn is an absolute necessity. There have been multiple occasions when I have needed to use my horn in traffic for safety. Distracted drivers will sit through green lights, back into me in parking lots, and merge into my lane without looking. I’ve tried getting their attention with my stock horn, but they just don’t hear it.

imagesLet’s face it – riding a motorcycle is getting scary these days. Every day I ride on the freeway, and it seems like everywhere I look drivers are glued to their phones. Tech companies continue to pump out more and more apps to keep users addicted to staring at their screens. You can’t even mention that you ride a motorcycle without hearing a comment about how they know someone who has been in a motorcycle accident.

If you’re anything like me, giving up riding is not an option. Man invented the perfect mode of transportation, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let a bunch of distracted phone junkies get in the way of my two-wheel road-therapy. But, I don’t want to become a statistic and end up as road kill either. So, it is my responsibility to do everything in my power to reduce risk and maximize safety precautions.

One big problem area where manufacturers just aren’t cutting it is your stock horn. I feel pretty tough on my Harley-Davidson with my roaring pipes… until I’m ever in a situation where I need to use my horn. I like to ride with buddies, and if I try to use my horn to signal them it sounds like Mickey Mouse trying to get their attention at a Metallica concert. It’s useless. I have a better chance of being heard if I grab the clutch and rev my throttle.

Aftermarket horns, like the the Kuryakyn Super Deluxe WOLO Bad Boy Air Horn, are powerful, inexpensive, and easy to install. This horn not only looks cool on your bike, but is more than twice as loud as a factory horn. There’s no excuse to avoid making this simple upgrade for your safety.

I have tested a few different aftermarket horns, and the Kuryakyn WOLO Bad Boy is my top pick. It is the latest in air horn technology and delivers the most bang for your buck. The Kuryakyn Super Deluxe WOLO Bad Boy blasts a 118 decibel – 530/680Hz dual-tone sound that could wake up the whole neighborhood, but more importantly, save your life. It comes out of the package ready to install, and you don’t need any hoses. I found that I could install it easily in just a few minutes by connecting the factory horn wires to the compressor on the Bad Boy. The kit includes a bracket and plug & play wiring for convenient, simple installation.

    These air horns have a 90 day guarantee. Mine lasted about 5 months before it stopped working.

    I am really considering upgrading but whats the difference between 7742 for 90.00, 7743 for 116.99 and model number 7290 for 144.91 except for the prices

    I have a 2007 Sportster Roadster – will it attach to the left side like the one in the picture or do I need a big twin for that?

      As long as you have the standard Cowbell horn, including the mounting bracket, it will work on the 2007 Roadster.

    I have a Power Deamon heated clothing connection attached to my stock HD horn bracket (2009 HD FLHTC). Will WOLO work arounnd that?

      Hi Jonathan, The Wolo horn is a little larger than the stock horn. It mounts in the same place, you might have to adjust where the clothing connection is. I know there are a few styles of Power Deamon heated clothing connections on the market, if it is the smaller one that is the size of the battery tender plug there should be no problem. It it is the older style that is similar in size to a cigarette lighter that might have to be relocated.

    This horn has a 90 day warranty. My horn went out shortly after the warranty expired. I would no recommend this product.

      Hi Rey, I am sorry to hear about your experience. Just out of curiosity, who did you buy the horn from?
