YOur effort better spent paying atention to other vehicles. I have driven all around Honolulu, and Oahu and Kauai and Hawaii ... I dont think I ever used the horn on my Honda 100, my Honda 250, my Honda 360 or my Electra Glide.

Most sun scooters have a switch under the seat in the seat needs to be set to unlock and if it's not connected it will not spark either.

I have a sym dd50, I have put a new batt and new carb on it, ihave got a very week spark on the plug. i have checkd the c.d.i. and the spark lead and all seems ok. Can anyone help?

typical chinese scooter
nothing wrong with the mechanics
or the components the only thing that lets them down
as normal is the wiring loom connection blocks
they do not make a very good connection

personally i would go inside your dash where your odometer is
this is held on by screws located under the panel
this is where you remote control starter and your immobiliser is located
unplug the connection blocks and plug them back in again
see if that works
if not you will have to do what i have done many times
is cut the junction blocks off strip back the wires a little and solder the wires and insulate each one
a bit time consuming but it will not cause you problems anymore

Hi how can I install an ooga horn on my yamaha r1 04 ????

Just like any other electrical horn. A relay is recommended for any after-market horn as they commonly require much more power than stock (you can find relay wiring diagrams and instructions all over the InterWebS). Other than that it's a question of finding enough room for it behind the fairing (be careful not to block the fork or wheel movement). If loudness is what you are aiming at, there are much better and more compact horns than ooga. Look for compact dual air horns (like Stebel, for example, very loud) or two tone electric horns (considerably louder and better sounding than stock). Ooga will make most people laugh instead of brake or flee, IMO.

I would like my vtx 1300 to be a little louder. can i drill a small hole in the back of the muffler to make it louder will this work any pros or cons please

Honda mufflers typically have several baffle walls You may need a drill 14 or more inches in length to punch through enough of these walls to make a noticeable difference. Changing the back pressure of the exhaust will also lean the mixture. This may cause a bad hesitation on take off. This will happen if you change the exhaust system also. To correct the hesitation you may need to install a jet kit on a carburetor model (about $100) or install a Power Commander on a fuel injected model (about $400 plus programming). In both cases your fuel economy will go down. Your stock system has a five year warranty, should not blue like an aftermarket pipe (unless you leave the choke on too long), and have a good long service life. Unfortunately there is no easy solution for your problem. Any aftermarket system will be way to loud (especially on the freeway) and drilling may not give you the desired sound you are looking for leaving you angry and frustrated. Consider a different option, One of the best sound options I have heard was a set of stock Harley pipes adapted to a Yamaha Virago 1100. Most Harley riders change out there exhaust systems before they even ride there bikes which should offer a cheap high quality system that can be adapted to your stock headers with common automotive adapter pipes and custom build it yourself supports (a simple modification of your stock pipe support/mounts). By not damaging your stock system you can always put it back on if you do not get the desired effect.

How do i install a new louder horn for my scooter? i have a bosch 30amp relay, a switch and the electronic horn.

First you will have to determine if your horn activates by earthing via the horn button or by connecting to positive via the horn button.
Locate the old horn and remove its wires. Connect these wires to the relay on pins 85 and 86. Operate the horn button and the relay should click.
Run a new wire from battery positive to relay pin 30.
Run a new wire from pin 87 to the horn positive.
Run a new wire from horn negative to an earthing point close to the horn or to battery negative and you're done.

Is there any way to modify the stock exhaust on a 2001 Suzuki 1500 Intruder LC, to be just a little louder? I do like the look of the stock exhaust.

Yes, Buy a long drill bit and drill holes in rear baffels, I used 3/8 and started with 3 in each then drilled more as needed. But if you want it a lot louder you will have to drill from the front too. The drill bit I have is 18" long. If you can't find one like that you may need to use a drill bit extension.

Weak sounding horn when cold

If you can remove the horn, spray some wd40 or other solvent into it and turn it so that the solvent will run into the center. Usually that will free it up. Or, just get another from a junkyard!
