I’m really enjoying my new to me 2013 V Star 1300 Tourer. I tried the stock horn a couple of weeks ago and it didn’t work so I replaced it with a low tone horn from a two horn set. What I would like to know is can the bike handle both horns without wiring in a relay. I do have a relay if needed. Thanks for helping.

The installation manual for that horn states "IMPORTANT: Always make sure that there is a 15 -amp fuse used in the horn circuit to protect the vehicle." The OEM horn shares a 10A fuse with the signaling system. So I would think that, yes, you want to use a relay.
