Yes, just make sure you install a relay(cut out).

sansand2000, you can get yourself a Roots horn at any automotive accessory shop which should run on your bike. I had two big ones on my bullet and everybody used to move out the way thinking an ambassador was behind them ;-)! Well it wasn't that harsh but was loud and clear.

If you don't install a relay the battery will get drained fast. Just go to a spare parts shop and ask for a "horn cut-out". They will know what you want. Your mechanic will be able to install it.

You need two-horn combination to get good amount of voice. The big dome at the front suppresses the tone 'significantly'. Moreover, removing the dome and fitting is a PAINFUL job. U have to unscrew at least 14 screws.

Most probably, as I remember, fitting skoda horns or root horns is highly impossible due to very less space inside the dome.

One mechanic in Koti, with very difficulty fitted two normal horns with relay. The cut-out generally costs around 50 bucks. Horns around 300-600 bucks depending on the type.
