Nice  8) I like the 8" one as well. It looks like it belongs on the bike.
Peace and All Good!

Have a question for all.  In this thread, it states that the horns are $269.99, on the website it states $279.99.  I received an invoice from BuffaloBrand.Co for $299.99.  No where does it say anything for taxes or shipping.  Which price is correct?

Thanks for pointing it out, the 15" should have been shown as $279.99. Copied and pasted and didn't change all the info...
(I updated where I could to reflect correction)
Also, for clarity purposes, our prices do not include shipping.
Thanks again!

I've been of the understanding that any aftermarket horn required some kind of relay to be safe. Is that part of the install and the two wires that go to the battery are coming from a relay?

Great question!
Yes, the Air Horn System wiring includes a relay and fuse holder and is completely wired. The installer just needs to run the harness wiring from the battery to the horn location and then plug in the power to the Air Horn System and the existing horn switch two-wire connector to the Air Horn System. No cutting or splicing, plug and play! :)

Is there a sound clip of that horn anywhere? It doesn't say it is as loud as a Nautilus air horn so was wondering just what it sounded like. Higher or lower pitch of the Nautilus?


I'm not sure I can even used it on a Roadmaster. Might be too much reflected sound from the lowers.

There are videos of the 8" and 15" on BuffaloBrand.Co website with sound of each horn. The 15" will not fit on a RoadMaster due to interference with the lowers.
The 8" fits nicely! Hope that helps!

G'day Randy !

Biggus ( Rick ) here - in Oz .....

REALLY  interested in one of your Horn systems for my '14 Vintage Chief  !!!

Could you please answer a couple of Q's for me ....

1)  Do you have an agent ( to buy from ) down here in Australia ?
         ( if not - can you please give me some contact details so I can chase these up )
             ( AND ..... if not - are you LOOKING FOR  "an agent here in Australia"  ?!?!? )

2)  Does your horn require an special wiring additions because of the Can-Bus wiring that
          the Indians have ?!?
( or does it just simply "plug in to the existing wiring / connector" ??? )

3)  I believe ( saw / read somewhere )  That the shorter 8" horn is actually LOUDER than
          the longer option .... is this true ?
  3a)  What DIFFERENCES are there between the two horn lengths ? ...... / WHY are
               there two length OPTIONS ???

4)  The LONGER horn kinda looks like our right foot MIGHT hit it .......  has this been the
         case at all ?!?

5)  COST ?  .... and shipping options ( and costs ) TO Australia ?

Many Thanks !


Big

Biggus,

1. No agent/dealers in Australia at this time. We have not yet set up dealers, but may sometime soon, we'll keep you posted.

2. No special wiring. Wiring harness to the battery and plug into the existing horn connector. Our system is Can-Bus compatible and we have had no issues.

3. The db rating of the 8" and 15" horns are different, and the 8" is rated as being a little louder, but both are sufficiently loud. The 8" has a higher pitch, the 15" a lower, deeper pitch.
3a. The 15" will not fit Indian models equipped with the hard lower fairing, so we offer the 8" for those owners.

4. We've not heard of any issues with the 15" Air Horn System and interference or clearances with operator's right foot.  Additionally, you are able to use the leather lower/wind deflector that attaches to the engine guard that is sold by Indian without clearance issues.

5. The 8" Air Horn System is $269.99 and the 15" Air Horn System is $279.99
Typical cost to ship to Australia has been $64.70 + $5.25 (Insurance) = $69.95USD

Hope this helps and we've answered all of your questions, if you have anymore, feel free to ask.

Thanks for the inquiry and some great questions, all the best,
Randy and Kathy
