How do I install a Horn

Would like to install a horn but need to know how to wire it in and the parts I will need.
I have a 12 volt horn but dont know what else I need to get it to work.
I guess a switch and some kinda relay ??
Thanks in advance.

all you need to do is bolt the horn to a good spot on the frame to ground it out, run a power wire to your battery and be sure to install a inline fuse 10amp would be good place that wire on connector on a push button switch and off the other post run na wire to the horn. Works and don't cost 30bucs. maybe the horn you have needs you to run a ground wire to it, but that is no big deal.

+1 for the UTV Crap horn kit

I highly recommend the UTV Crap horn kit. This is a very easy installation. I mounted my horn to one of the bolts that hold down the airbox after bending the supplied bracket. The wire then runs to the temporary button included in the kit (third pic). From there I ran the wire along the cross bar over to the battery box to a fused power distribution board. I opted to to have mine connected to power on all the time.

How's it sound? I want something loud enough to get my boys attention when they're riding their dirt bikes.

It has been very effective for me. I ride with two other four wheelers (Sportsman 400 and 500) and they are able to hear the horn fine. Not sure the db rating, but I scared the poop out of the wife when I "tested" it in the garage with her standing there!
