The comments file explains what the pictures are showing. I did provide a copy of the literature that came with the horn which I did not find helpful.

The PO of my Trail mounted one of these on my Trail. Honestly I'm not a huge fan but haven't felt like replacing it. It does make a lot of noise!

It is rated at 130db. It is louder that the stock horn on my 2021 CT125 Trail.

I believe that! Mine will eventually get replaced with something else. It's fine for now though.

My biggest problem has been that the horn button on my Trail is backwards from where the Horn buttons are on my Yamaha and KTM's are. The couple of times when I've needed the horn I've hit the turn signals. First world problems LOL

The horn button on my TC125 Trail is above the turn signal switch on the left switch assembly. Above the horn button is the high/low beam selector. This seems to be standard for the Honda line of motorcycles.

For Honda's, yes. My Grom was in the same position. Like I said though, my other non-Honda bikes are reversed. First world problems...

Same. Almost every other make of bike I ride has the Horn as the bottom center or bottom left control, below the turn signal(s). I will give it to Honda that the control button/switch mechanisms are really nice feeling though, they're a better tactile experience than on most other bikes.

I recently installed a snail air horn on my bike and totally get what you mean about the literature not being helpful. I found the same thing with my kit. After a bit of trial and error, I finally got it working.

One tip: make sure your wiring is secure. I had to redo mine twice because of loose connections. Also, if you're looking for something with a bit more oomph, I tried a friend's horn from https://bosshorn.com/ - Train Horns, and it was amazing! Super loud and clear.

Funny story – the first time I honked it, I startled a group of cyclists, and we all had a good laugh. It definitely grabs attention!
