Some have removed the stock horn and installed a loud unit made by Fiamm. I don't know what the model# of the Fiamm horn is, but shisoshin has one on his bike. If he doesn't weigh in here, you could send him a PM.The horn on this bike is pretty wussy. I was trying to alert someone that they had the green light to go over the weekend. I laid on the horn pretty hard, but either they didn't hear me, or they just didn't care.
I suspect that most motorcycle horns are weak anyway. Plus, it probably isn't worth the extra weight and money to do a huge aftermarket one.

AUD59 on eBay. Work a treat.
Interesting. My experience with the 1st gear is OK. Sometimes, like when approaching a red light or when creeping FW in a traffic jam, I leave it in the first gear and even take it all the way to 8000 RPM and have no issues. It can be jerky, as mentioned, but my hand got used to fine throttle control from our basically constant traffic jams through downtown Toronto, so most of the times I can control it. At very low speeds, like slow walking speed, the jerkiness can be hard to control, but then the clutch comes in handy-Stock first gear is useless. I have to shortshift to 2nd to even make left turns from a stoplight.
If you want to pay $80. MotoMike just bumped up a thread on how to make your own. I made mine a while ago. $3 black coated rain gutter guard and some aviator snips. The gutter guard is 3 feet long but the height is exactly the height you need. 5 minuteTry ebay, R&G make radiator covers: R&G RACING BLACK RADIATOR GUARD COVER Honda CBR300R (2014 | eBay
$120 USD for a cheap piece of mesh with a bit of farkle trim around the edge?... I don't think so. I can think of plenty of other more worthwhile things to do with $120.I don't understand why you used a piece of cheap guttering mesh when you brought a 4k motorbike.
