Where do you folks mount the horn for your WR400 when you make it street legal? I have a 99 WR400 and it is street legal, but I need to do the inspection on it. It didnt have a horn on it when I got it, so I need to put a horn on it and I am not sure of the best place to mount the horn and the best horn to use? I wil luse a 3.5 inch econo horn for the time being, but would like to get a better permenant mount horn in the future. I am not even sure where to mount the current econo horn.

Any suggestions and info are appreciated.

Is there a good horn to be used? Small but loud enough? This 3.5 inch one is kinda bulky for under the headlight.

I have a Wr400 2001 model (last of its kind) and the horn i have has 1 threaded bolt on the back and mine originally was mounted on the same bracket that holds the speedo on. Just to the left hand side of it.

I use a 108 dB Piezo buzzer from Radio Shack as my horn.

Model: 273-057
Catalog #: 273-057
Loud as hell
Stands up to almost any abuse including water.
It has a 2-tone sound that reminds me of a special effects noise used for laser pistols from a 50's Sci-Fi movie. I get a kick out of hitting the horn button and simultaneously finger-gunning my riding buds when I pull up next to them. But then again, I'm a nerd.

I have it zip-tied to the Flatland Racing radiator guard on the left side close-in to the frame.

This is what the horn looks like:
