Try sqealing like a pig it doesn't require any extra juice. :D

Seriously, there are some very loud bicycle horns that don't require any juice or there are some air horns that have there own air canister (used on boats) :)

The only other option is to finish winding your stator which will give you all the power you need.

Frogman,

Just about any motorcycle horn will work. They don't draw much juice. I bought one on e-bay for about eight bucks, and it works fine. Find one with a positive and a negative post. The frame on the BRP is not grounded with the lighting system, so you will need to run both wires.

Gary :)
